Hairline Lowering with Hair Transplant

If done properly by a well trained hair transplant surgeon results from hair transplant is preferable as no scarring is visible. Results depend on the artistic ability and skill of the surgeon.

Reducing Size of Forehead

I have a bias to the hairline lowering procedure we described many years ago using the Irregular Trichophytjc Hairline Incision where hair will grow through and in front of the incision after surgery. The technique provides immediate results with good hair density so the patient has total freedom of hair styling. Hair transplants can also be used preferably in patients with finer, light hair.

High forehead in young female

If there is good scalp and forehead laxity, lowering the hairline by scalp advancement will give the quickest and most dense results. Hair transplants can be done at a later date.
