Hair transplants

Dear Ramin93,

It is usually better in males to reduce the height of the forehead with hair transplants.  This is because the male hairline tends to keep receding isolating the incision line in front of the hairline following hairline reduction surgery.  However, if your hairline is stable and your relatives have not had a great deal of hairline recession it is possible to do this surgery particularly if you are prepared to pepper the incision line with hair transplants at a later date should you get recession.

Forehead reduction and hair transplantation

You can certainly achieve a shorter forehead. Forehead reduction works well but if you continue to lose hair the incision may become visible. Hair transplantation is likely a better choice for you. Also you have the option of doing both and hiding the incision in the new transplanted hair. this all depends on your hairloss history, exam etc.Good luck
