Hairline, Temples and Temporal Zone.


The word receding hairline refers to a reduction in the quantity and quality of hair in the temple area that produces a receding of the hairline.

This process inexorably changes our physiognomy making us look, unfortunately, older.

The word “square” is associated with the vertex (typical of male alopecia) and is a reduction in the quantity and quality of hair in the posterior area of the scalp.


What are Temples and what is the Temporal Region

a) The temples are therefore the areas on the right and left sides of the front where the hair changes its direction. From “temples” comes the word “hairline”.

b) The area just above the ears is called the temporal region (or temporal zone or parietal zone).

The temporal area as well as that of the vertex is the first to be subjected to the action of DHT which acts on the hair in a negative way making it gradually lose quality.
Suffering a reduction in the quality and quantity of hair in the area of the temples does not ensure very high baldness, it is possible that the retreat stops and that other areas of the scalp are not attacked.


The temples, the temporal area and hair transplantation.

One of the most important areas to consider when it comes to hair transplantation is the temporal area, which consists of the triangular portion of the hair that runs from the temples to above the ears.

Most hair transplants are focused on the top area of the head for various reasons. Transplanting here, especially to reduce receding hairline, tends to be more aesthetically profitable (since the priority is usually reconstructing the frontal line) and less problematic in terms of naturalness. Reconstructing a temporal area with excellent results is never easy.


What are the reasons why reconstructing the temporal area is always difficult?

The best surgeons in the world report that this type of area is the most difficult to transplant for several factors. The most important is that the hair in the temporal area does not follow a growth direction like the top of the head, and the hair will need to grow back in a specific direction (down and towards the ears) in order to give a natural feel to the result. In order to do this, the receiving area will need to undergo flatter incisions to make sure that the direction of hair exit is correct.
