Background : The shape of the hairline and the ratio of the forehead to the face are both important factors for a balanced and attractive face. Because males primarily have a hairline with a rectangular or M shape (a frontotemporal-recessed shape), females with such shapes often have a strong masculine image and appear older. Follicular unit (FU) transplantation was used recently so that the forehead could be reduced naturally and effectively by changing the rectangular or M-shape hairline to a round-shape hairline, thus reducing the forehead. So the author is going to introduce a harmonious, balanced correction, named as total hairline correction that presents not only the frontal midpoint and fronto-temporal line, but also a temporal point, infra-temporal area, and/or sideburn. Methods : Author studied 300 operation patients in last three years whose mean age was 29.3 years (range 19-57 years). Results : The average reduced length was followed: frontal mid-point: 0.63 (0-1.5 cm), frontotemporal apex: 3.38 (1-4.5 cm), Rt 3.18 (1-4.5 cm) Lt, temporal point: 0.91 (0-3 cm) Rt, 0.88 (0-3 cm) Lt, infratemporal apex: 0.92 (0-1.5 cm) Rt, 0.93 (0-2 cm) Lt. Conclusions : In female patient with M shaped or rectangular hairline, total hairline correction which included not only mid-frontal area and fronto-temporal recession, but also temporal peak, infratemporal area and sideburn is better than simple correction of frontotemporal recess in reducing the facial area and maintaining the aesthetic facial balance.
