Hairline lowering surgery
Hair loss can occur after hairline lowering surgery. Shock loss can occur which is temporary and more diffuse in nature. Hair loss can also occur from heat transmitted from cautery during surgery. Care should always be taken to avoid injuring the hair follicles with cautery during surgery, as this type of hair loss can be permanent.

Does hairline lowering surgery cause hair loss?
Hi there. Thank you for your question and photo. Temporary hairloss is common after hairline lowering surgery. Permanent hairloss is rare. From your photo you appear to be a very suitable candidate for hairline lowering. This is a frequent procedure in my clinic (2 or 3 each week) with very high patient satisfaction. Good luck.

Microscpiic thinning of the hair has to occur with the hairline lowering operqtion as the scalp is being stretched. This, however, is not hair loss.
Hairline lowering does not cause hair loss in my 35 year experience.
