Hairline Lowering Procedure:
The hairline lowering is a procedure to achieve a lower hairline. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made at the hairline and extends into the temporal area within the hair bearing region. Through this incision the scalp is advanced forward. The excess forehead skin is then removed and the hairline is placed in a new lowered position. In most cases the hairline can be lowered by about 1/2 to 1 inch in a single procedure. Stitches are removed in one week, most patients are back to work in a few days, and are able to wash their hair the next day. In some cases a follow up hair transplant is desired to lower the hairline further for covering the hair line scar.
The scar from hairline advancement is typically hidden by re-growth of hair. The scar can be seen in some cases. Infections are rare.
