Dr. Epstein is Proud to Have His Work Recognized by
Hairline Lowering & Forehead Reduction
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 six 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.
