What is Hairline Lowering?

Hairline lowering surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can change the shape of your hairline. The procedure is for women with a high hairline or forehead. Hairline or forehead reduction surgery is a great option to augment the shape of your hairline the way you would want it. This procedure can be used to lower the hairline by several centimeters.

Hairline Lowering Benefits

It involves moving the hairline forward with hair follicles to create a more youthful or aesthetically pleasing appearance.

This procedure is different from a forehead reduction or hairline advancement, which is an advanced surgical procedure performed only by a few surgeons in North America.
