Hairline-lowering surgery is one of the most effective ways to adjust the height of the hairline and balance out the facial proportions. People can have high hairlines for several reasons, including genetics and hair loss around the hairline. As a result, the forehead can seem disproportionally wide compared to the other parts of the face.
How does hairline lowering surgery work?
At Follicle HT in Toronto, Ontario, Hairline lowering is an operation performed under general anesthesia by Dr. Mark Korman and Dr. Philip Solomon . An incision is made at the hairline and extends into the temporal area within the hair-bearing region. The excess forehead skin is then removed, and the hairline is placed in a new, lowered position. In most cases, the hairline can be reduced by about 1/2 to 1 inch in a single procedure. The skin is sutured together in a way that minimizes scar formation and is hidden almost entirely by the hairline upon hair regrowth.
Are you a good candidate?
Factors that make you a good candidate for hairline lowering are:
- Man or woman with a naturally high hairline, receding hairline, unhappy with their forehead
- A broad forehead and wants to shorten the forehead
- Low or heavy eyebrows and want to change the proportion of your face
- Healthy with no contraindications to healing
- Have realistic expectations for the surgery
- Know the risks of the procedure well
