Name: Mathew

Question:Hi, I want to have surgery to reduce my hairline but I must have a stable hairline. My hairline is receding so after treatment would my hairline be stable and at what age can I start and how much is treatment for an 18 year old roughly

Answer: Hi, Mathew. If you have a receding hairline then the clinically-proven treatment minoxidil can help you to regrow and stabilise your hair loss.

This type of treatment is applied directly to the thinning areas once or twice per day, as directed, and is suitable for people aged 16+. It can also be used in addition to a range of hair growth boosters to help promote promising regrowth.

Generally this type of treatment should be followed for at least 12 months prior to hair restoration surgery, to have the best chance of seeing a significant improvement. However, the first results should become noticeable after 3 to 4 months of continuous use. Following an on-going course of hair loss treatment is advised in order to maintain your regrowth and keep it as stable as possible.

Price is dependent upon the type of course you opt for from the personalised recommendations our hair loss specialists provide, but to give you a guide, these tend to range from £600 to £2,000 per year.

In terms of an operation to reduce your hairline, we do not carry out surgical procedures, however, top surgeons generally recommend men only consider a hair transplant once they are at least 25 years old.

If you would like a personalised assessment of your hairline, we can arrange for you to see a hair loss specialist who can also refer you on to our highly respected hair transplant partner if you have any surgical queries. For this type of assistance, please make an appointment for a free consultation at one of our Central London clinics or complete our Online Consultation if you are based outside London.
