Hairline Correction Treatment

Hairline Correction Treatment

Hairline correction treatment is used to correct a prominent forehead or a hairline that starts too high on the face, especially for men. Usually, male and female hairlines should start at around 5-6 cm above the eyebrows. This helps the facial balance and makes the eyes appear larger. However, if a person’s hairline starts too high on the forehead or is located too far up on the forehead, this can make the forehead look disproportionate to the rest of the face. The result is a facial imbalance that can make a person self-conscious about their appearance.


The most effective treatment for a high forehead is hairline reduction surgery. 강남헤어라인 During this procedure, the plastic surgeon makes an incision and loosens the hair-bearing scalp tissues. Then, the surgeon moves the scalp forward by one to three centimeters and removes any excess skin before closing the incision. In addition, if the patient requires it, a brow lift is performed to elevate the eyebrows. In most cases, this is a same-day procedure that is performed under local anesthesia with minimal downtime.

In most patients, the hairline can be lowered up to 2 centimeters using this technique. However, the exact amount of modification that can be accomplished depends on how loose a patient’s scalp tissue is and on their personal goals. During the consultation process, the plastic surgeon will discuss these issues with the patient in detail.무모증모발이식

Forehead reduction surgery can also be done in combination with a nose rhinoplasty or a chin implant to achieve optimal results. This is particularly common for transgender and transitioning females undergoing gender reassignment who want to make the lateral portions of their forehead appear more narrow. Similarly, many men who have had previous surgeries to reduce the prominence of their foreheads often benefit from combined procedures such as this.

During the initial office visit or virtual consultation, Dr. Aharonov will carefully assess your individual needs and determine if you will require the use of a tissue expander for your hairline lowering surgery. In most cases, the doctor will be able to close the wound without a tissue expander and most scars from this procedure are virtually imperceptible within 1 year of the surgery.

Hairline surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preferences. The procedure takes about an hour and is very comfortable, with minimal post-procedure pain.

Most patients experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure that will typically resolve in a few days. The surgeon may place a light compression dressing over the head to help with this and other post-procedure effects, but it is generally easy to return to work and most regular activities after a few days. To speed up recovery, it is recommended to follow the post-op instructions given by the plastic surgeon. Many of these will include specific dietary and hydration guidelines that will have a significant impact on the speed at which any pain, swelling, or bruising resolves.
