Common Insecurities - How to Fix a Receding Hairline
Let's face it, many of us lose hair as we age. It is a natural sign of aging mainly in men but it can be prominent with women as well. Some of us may have inherited a naturally high hairline not due to hair loss as well. Having a disproportionately high hairline or large forehead can divert attention from one’s otherwise balanced facial features and weigh heavily on a person’s self-esteem. Hair loss can be one of the top concerns in individuals when considering cosmetic insecurities.
In order to combat this natural aging process, there are two main procedures offered by expert hair restoration plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Champagne.

Both women and men alike can have this procedure to correct the shape of the hairline, to fill in patchy areas or to hide scars or marks near the hairline.
Through techniques known as Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) and/or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) which move individual hair follicles from an area of greater density on the back of the scalp to areas that have thinned over time, Dr. Champagne is able to...
