For a female, hairline lowering is a great procedure because females do not have to worry about genetic frontal hairloss.
For men who can continue to bald as they age, hair transplantation is a better solution than a hairline lowering procedure to reduce the forehead size (its like a reverse brow lift). If the balding continues after a hairline lowering procedure, the scar will become evident and a transplant sooner or later will be needed. For women, however, the choice to do a full surgical hairline lowering procedure is a reasonable option as their is rarely frontal balding as in men.
If you have a hairline lowering procedure you may need a small hair transplant procedure to hide the inevitable scar at the frontal edge, but the procedure is literally instantaneous while you must wait for 6+ months for the hair transplants to grow out. If you have a hair transplant procedure you many need a second hair transplant procedure to meet the density goal that you desire no matter what anyone tells you. Just remember that if it sounds too good to be true… well, you know the rest.
