Forehead Reduction or Hair transplants for naturally high forehead.

Which is better for a high forehead, and are there any really good doctors for either one of these procedures in the Honolulu area? I haven't found any I would trust.

Forehead Reduction or Hair Transplants for High Forehead

       Either would be appropriate in the right patient.  However, the forehead reduction surgery could reduce a fairly large surface area quickly.  The number of hair units needed may be prohibitively high in certain cases.

Forehead Reduction

Assuming you're a female, hairline lowering, a procedure we described many years ago, will give you a much better, more natural result.

Scalp Advancement vs hair Transplants For High Forehead

The answer to your question would depend on how high your forehead is, your natural scalp laxity, the density of your frontal hairline and how you naturally wear your hair. In general, a hairline advancement is almost always better but the specific features of each patient needed to be evaluated to make that decision.

Forehead Reduction or Hair transplants for naturally high forehead.

If you are female and  have acceptable scalp laxity there is no question in my mind that the  procedure of hairline  lowering/ forehead reduction operation is the surgery of choice

Forehead reduction surgery or hair line lowering surgery is a specialized type of surgery.  Many plastic/cosmetic surgeons may offer it but not many specialize in it.  The best in the country in my opinion is Dr. Kabaker and Dr. Aharonov.
