A receding hairline is not unusual among men. As men age, their hairline begins to recede. Men have reported a receding hairline as early as the age of 17. However, the extent and speed of recession vary among all men. If the hairline recedes rapidly and further than 1.5cm, it may be a sign of male pattern baldness. Fortunately, FUE transplant in Dubai can help in the restoration of a receding hairline without any problem.
While a receding hairline may be natural, it doesn’t mean men have to suffer at a young age. A hair transplant can restore their hairline and delay the natural hair loss leading to male pattern baldness.

Signs of Hairline Recession
Some men don’t notice the signs of a receding hairline until it is too late. Below we have mentioned some common symptoms of hairline recession for you to look out for.
A receding hairline is different from a naturally maturing hairline. A hairline develops naturally by pulling back evenly. On the other hand, when a hairline recedes, the hairline is pulled back unevenly. Typically, it forms an M shape in the front. Receding usually occurs from the temples, the sides, the middle of the forehead, or the backside of the scalp. So, if you are experiencing any of these signs, you may have a receding hairline.
Hair Thinning above the Temples
This type of hair thinning is common in men. In this case, the middle part of the hair recedes from the temples. Women can also experience this type of hairline recession, but their hair thinning is more uniform than men. Their hair will start thinning at the temples and, over time, spread to the top of the head.
Unusual Hair Loss
Naturally, everyone loses 50-100 hair strands every day. However, if your hair loss seems more than the standard hair fall, it may be a sign of hairline recession. But before going for an FUE Dubai treatment, observe the hair loss for a few days. If it doesn’t subside on its own, it may be time to consult a specialist.
Causes of a Receding Hairline
There are some common causes of hairline recession that can be tracked in every patient. However, there may also be exceptional cases, so it’s better to let an expert diagnose the underlying cause. The common causes of a receding hairline are mentioned below.
The most common cause of a receding hairline is aging. Thousands of hair follicles are present under the scalp. When our hair falls out, new hairs grow from these follicles. However, with age, these follicles can become damaged. As a result, more hair loss occurs, leading to a hairline recession.
The second culprit behind a receding hairline is genetics. Some people may inherit a receding hairline from their family genes. It is common for people with a family history of baldness to experience a receding hairline.
Hormonal imbalance can easily trigger hair loss among men and women. The hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) causes male pattern baldness. It does so by shrinking the hair follicles. Hormonal hair loss is more common among women, but it affects men, too. Women lose their hair during PMS or menstruation, after childbirth, and during menopause. Hair loss due to hormonal imbalance can lead to hair thinning, but it can also be treated.
Our diet can also impact our hair health. The following food types can ruin our hair texture and cause hair thinning:
- processed foods
- sugary foods
- foods with preservatives
- saturated fats
Other unhealthy lifestyle choices, like smoking and drinking, can also cause a receding hairline.
Can FUE hair transplants restore the natural hairline?
Hairline restoration is a technical procedure that requires precision and careful planning of a natural-looking hairline. If an amateur practitioner designs the hairline, they will make it appear unnatural and juvenile. As a result, it won’t look appealing, especially when hair loss is progressive.
FUE Dubai can help restore a natural-looking hairline. However, it uses the Norwood scale to determine the stage of hair loss. If a patient’s hair loss is at Stage 3, known as the first stage of balding, of the Norwood scale, he/she can get an FUE hair transplant.
What is an FUE hair transplant?
The FUE hair transplant is a safe and minimally invasive procedure. During the procedure, the hair transplant surgeon will extract individual hair follicles from the donor area. The donor area is usually the backside of the scalp. After extracting enough healthy hair follicles, the surgeon will move on to the second phase of the procedure.
In the second part, he/she will implant the harvested hair follicles into the recipient site. The harvested hair follicles are implanted into the hairline, head crown, and temples to restore a receding hairline.
Since FUE transplant harvests and implants one follicle at a time, it allows the surgeon to design a more natural-looking hairline. The procedure takes time, but the results are worth the wait.
