Lowering the haurlines

Aggressive lowering of the hairline may be lowered by hair transplant. May be 2 cm.(Lass than 1 inch)

More than that then you will need a tissue expander and lowering the hairline 3-5 cm ( 2 inches).

Two surgeries and expanding the tissue expander once a week for 2-3 months, then the next procedure of lowering the hairline. You also need to accept a scar in front of the hairline, which can be hidden with another procedure of hair transplant to the scar. Quite an investment in time and money
