The two types of hair transplant has more to do with harvesting the hair rather than results.
The two types of hair transplant has more to do with harvesting the hair rather than results. FUE technique requires a shaved donor area. This may be a factor for men and women who don't want to shave their head.
Fill the receding hairline
I advise you to have a FUE operation of 2000 grafts (I mean approx. 3000-4000 hair shaft ). I determine frontal hair line and debade with patient to decide level of new hairline. We have to shave the donor area partially, not totally, (you may continue to your normal life ) otherwise doc can not harvest the grafts one by one in FUE . .
It really doesn't matter
Either procedure, done by a good surgeon, will give you the same result. In my area, FUT and FUE cost about the same, so the benefit of FUE is an easier recover with no big scar. Good luck!

Hairline lowering which harvesting technique is better?
if you choose an experienced hair restoration surgeon, FUT can be the best option. With trichophytic closure technique after healing the is minimal scar line and you don't need to shave the donor area.
A Hairline lowering hair transplant with FUT is the best way to manage your receding hairline. An FUE would require you to shave the back of your head. We have open house events once a month and at these events my wife, who has long hair and had her hairline lowered, usually comes. As you are in the LA area, consider coming to this open house, the next one will be Saturday, October 15 from 11-2pm. What you see is what you will get.
