Are you a good candidate for the hairline lowering procedure?
Having an overly high hairline and subsequent large-appearing forehead can be distressing.
The surgical hairline lowering procedure takes about two hours to complete, and allows Dr. Epstein to lower the hairline by ¾ to as much as 1 ½ inches in a single procedure. The surgery provides virtually instant, natural-looking results.
You are a good candidate for hairline lowering surgery if you:
- Have a flexible scalp
- Do not have much thinning at the front hairline
- Have a stable frontal hairline
- Are motivated to undergo a surgical procedure to achieve your goals
Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Epstein is the best way to know if you are a good candidate as he has advanced techniques that can be used for some inflexible scalps.
If Dr. Epstein determines surgical hairline lowering isn’t right for you, hair grafting may be a good option. It’s less invasive and as many as 2400 hair grafts can be planted within a single procedure, which Dr. Epstein will ensure grow in a natural direction for pleasing results.
What is the hairline lowering surgery procedure?
Dr. Epstein performs the surgery by making an incision along the front of the hairline then brings the front scalp forward; excess forehead skin is then removed.
The procedure is performed under twilight sedation, results are almost immediate and patients are usually presentable within one week.
Dr. Epstein and his team of assistants will be with you every step of the way – from the consultation through recovery. Dr. Epstein is beloved by his patients and always available to answer any questions. He shares his personal cell phone number so that he can be reached with any concerns you may have during recovery.
Is recovery from hairline lowering surgery relatively fast?
Yes, recovery for most patients is relatively short and easy. Sutures get removed at one week and return to most activities is then permitted.
