Understanding Temple Hair Loss
The temporal areas form part of your hairline; they are located at the sides of the forehead above the ear.
The temporal points — those small triangles of fine hair on each side of the temples — play a crucial role in framing the face and visually reducing the length of the forehead. While some individuals naturally preserve their temporal peaks, others may require temple point restoration to maintain their desired look.
That being said, temple area hair loss should not be confused with normal hair recession in the temple region that is associated with the transition from an adolescent to an adult hairline. Candidates for an FUE temple transplant typically have Norwood Type 3 hair loss, which is known as the first stage of balding and is often characterised by noticeable temporal hairline recession.
Because your hairline frames your facial features, a temple hair transplant surgery can have a profound impact on your overall facial harmony, creating a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Causes of Temporal Recession
Temple hair loss can be caused by many different factors, but it is commonly the result of androgenic alopecia or traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is caused by frequently wearing tight hairstyles that pull at the scalp, such as cornrows and tight ponytails.
Men and women can also lose hair due to changes in their hormones, known as androgenetic alopecia. Temple hair is highly sensitive to changes in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This sensitivity often makes the temples one of the first areas to experience thinning, particularly in male pattern baldness.
Challenges in Temple Hair Restoration
The temple region presents unique challenges for hair transplantation surgeons. To achieve natural results, it is crucial for the surgeon to carefully design the new hairline and place the hair grafts at the correct angle and depth, mimicking the patient’s natural pattern of hair growth. Some individuals may even have a cowlick in this area, which should be recreated for a natural-looking final result.
Additionally, achieving adequate density during the temple hair loss treatment is essential for blending seamlessly with hair follicles in the forelock and mid-scalp areas.
If you are experiencing hairline and temple hair loss, book a consultation with Dr Bonaros for a bespoke treatment plan.
Our Approach to Temple Hair Transplants
Dr Bonaros conducts a temple hair transplant procedure using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. The FUE hair transplant surgery addresses the unique challenges of temple hair loss while being less invasive than FUT transplant procedures and avoiding a linear scar. Here’s what you can expect from a temple points hair transplant at our hair loss clinic:
Before the procedure, Dr Bonaros will perform a detailed assessment to understand your unique hair characteristics, overall health, and aesthetic goals. This assessment allows us to create a treatment plan tailored precisely to your needs.
Precise Graft Placement
During the FUE temple hair transplant, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area, usually at the back of the scalp. The donor hair is then skillfully transplanted to the temporal area of the scalp.
Dr Bonaros is a pioneer in using state-of-the-art hair implanter pens that allow for precise control over the direction, angle, and depth of the hair follicles. This approach streamlines the procedure and allows Dr Bonaros to restore hair in the temporal region with results that look exceptionally natural.
We understand the importance of creating a natural hairline design. Dr Bonaros focuses on blending the hair grafts seamlessly into your mid-scalp and forelock while harmonising with your unique facial proportions and mimicking what your hairline once looked like.
Dr Bonaros uses his expertise to ensure that the distribution and angulation of grafts achieves the necessary graduation of density to create a feathered, natural appearance.

Temples Hair Transplant - FAQs
Have a question about hair transplant surgery for the temple areas? We’ve answered some of the queries we often receive about temple hair transplants to help you find the best treatment for your hair loss concerns.
How can I prevent temple hair loss?
There are some external factors that can be avoided to prevent temple hair loss. For instance, if you have longer hair, you should avoid tight hairstyles as this can cause damage to the hair follicle. This can cause you to lose hair permanently over time, typically resulting in a receding hairline.
There are also non-invasive hair loss and hair thinning treatment options that may be able to prevent future hair loss and even stimulate hair growth, such as the medications Minoxidil, Finasteride, and Dutasteride. The most effective treatment to prevent future hair loss will differ from person to person, and it is essential to consult a qualified doctor to find the best option for you.
Whether you’re considering temple hair transplant surgery or starting a hair loss medication, Dr Bonaros can help you find the right treatment to regain your self-confidence.
Who performs the hair transplant procedure?
The precision required for a temple hair transplant procedure demands exceptional skill. Yet, in many FUE hair clinics, surgeons may delegate the graft extraction and implantation to their technicians.
At our clinic in Glasgow, Dr Bonaros himself will perform every aspect of the hair transplant on your temples, ensuring that each step is carried out meticulously from start to finish.
How long does the procedure take?
The duration of an FUE hair transplant on the temple points and greater temple areas typically spans four to eight hours. This depends on the number of grafts required from the donor area and if it is part of a greater hair transplant procedure including the rest of the hairline or not.
How painful is a FUE hair transplant for temples?
The FUE hair transplant is carried out under local anaesthesia, ensuring that you remain fully awake throughout the procedure while experiencing minimal to no discomfort.
For the temporal hair transplant, we also use the cutting-edge Kinetic Anesthesia Device, which diminishes the discomfort that is often associated with local anaesthetic injections.
What is the downtime for a temple hair transplant?
Our ultimate aim is to ensure a comfortable and straightforward recovery process that maximises your hair transplant (temples) before and after results. Dr Bonaros provides comprehensive guidance on caring for your grafts during the initial weeks following your FUE hair transplant. These post-operative instructions are designed to facilitate a smooth recovery of your scalp.
While some patients choose to return to light work as soon as the day after their temple hair transplant, many prefer to take a few days off to rest and recover properly. You can typically expect to resume your regular activities within a few days and engage in more strenuous physical activities approximately two weeks after your temple point hair transplant.
