Hello I am a 19 year old male, and I have always had a large forehead(I face no issue of hair loss).I came to know about this hairline lowering procedure and I am really interested to know more. I have attached a photo of my forehead, as clearly visible the left edge of my hairline is above the right one. What I actually want is my hairline to be lowered and both the edges should be level.Is this possible? Thank You!

Hair line Lowering?
the hairline can be lowered considerably in one stage by doing a browlift with the incision at the hairline, lifting up the scalp side of the flap , scoring it and pulling it forward with stitches embedded in the bone. You don't have to do an expander.

To lower hairline you have two option. If the lowering is minimal then hair transplant. If the lowering is significantly then you need two surgeries, one to put a tissue expander, expand the hair bearing area the second surgery is to advance the hair bearing area to the forehead. You will have a scar in front the hairline, which can be covered with hair transplant.
