Hair procedures for women
Hairline Lowering Surgery, Hair Restoration, Eyebrow Transplantation.
Three Procedures, Provided With the Highest Level of Skill and Expertise
For women, lack of sufficient scalp or eyebrow hair, having an overly large forehead, or having scarring along the sideburns or hairline from prior plastic surgery, can be a distressing and personal experience. Dr. Epstein is a true expert in addressing these aesthetic concerns, with years of experience and performing thousands of procedures.
To complement his surgical techniques, Dr. Epstein founded the Women’s Center for Hair Loss, along with European plastic surgeon Dr. Gorana Kuka Epstein, to provide the most effective medical approaches to diagnosing and treating hair loss when appropriate.
Hair Procedures That Are Aesthetic and Technically Advanced
For close to three decades, Dr. Epstein has been advancing techniques for hairline lowering surgery, hair transplantation, and eyebrow restoration that have set him apart as a true expert. Board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology, and Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, he created the Women’s Center for Hair Loss to specifically address the concerns of his female patients in a caring and specialized environment.
In addition to performing procedures, patients are able to receive proper medical work-ups and individualized nonsurgical interventions that include but are not limited to genetic tests for hair loss, at-home laser light therapy, and autologous fat transfer (a procedure developed by Dr. Epstein and his colleague Dr. Gorana Kuka Epstein for treating scarring alopecia).

Hairline Lowering & Forehead Reduction
There are two techniques for advancing the overly high hairline – forehead reduction/hairline lowering surgery, and hair transplantation. Few doctors are proficient in both procedures, but given Dr. Epstein’s experience as a facial plastic surgeon specializing exclusively in hair restoration, he is one of the world’s specialists.
The surgery takes two hours to perform, and allows in the appropriate candidate to achieve as much as 1 inch or more of lowering of the hairline in a single procedure, with virtually instantaneous results and unsurpassed density. The main requirement for this procedure is a flexible scalp to allow for sufficient advancement, and not much if any thinning of the frontal hairline. Hair grafting is less “surgical”, where 1200 to as many as 2500 or more hair grafts can be transplanted in a single procedure to grow in a natural direction. In consultation with Dr. Epstein, you will be able to come up with the ideal plan for addressing your hair concerns.
Surgical Hairline Advancement/Hairline Lowering Surgery
This surgical procedure, in which Dr. Epstein is one of a handful of surgeons to specialize performing, involves the making of an incision along the front of the hairline, through which the entire frontal scalp is brought forward and the excess forehead skin excised. The incision heals as a fine line scar designed so that hairs actually grow through it.
Usually performed under general anesthesia, recovery is quite easy, with sutures removed at one week and most patients presentable the very next day. In most cases, Dr. Epstein is able to advance the hairline by 20 to 24mm, or around one inch, but he routinely exceeds this amount due to his extensive experience that allows him to obtain the greatest amount of lowering. Dr. Epstein is also able to use this surgery to repair prior transplanted hairlines that lack density and or have developed scarring due to less than aesthetic work. Dr. Epstein may also use this technique in cases of scalp reconstructions such as after trauma.
This meticulous technique takes five to eight hours to perform, usually under oral sedation, to allow for the harvesting then placement of the large number of hairs into individually made recipient sites.
The hairs are transplanted in what are called “follicular units” — the natural bundling of one, two, and three hairs. No sutures are required if done by the FUE (follicular unit extraction) technique, or dissolvable sutures are used with the strip technique. The next day the patient may have her hair washed, then return to most activities in a matter of days.
