Hair line lowering procedure can also be achieved at BHHR by surgical skills of Dr. Kahen. We will plan your customized hairline lowering based on what looks natural and what will bring out your natural features. Some reasons patients may consider hairline lowering are: Traction Alopecia, naturally high hairline, Transgender sex change or they may wish to change the shape of their face. The surgical hairline lowering procedure can lower the patient's hairline up to 2 inches. It is possible to actually change the shape of the hairline, making it more oval or rounded by filling in the upper temporal/side regions. The hairline lowering surgery shortens the forehead while moving the hairline forward. Hair grafting helps round out of the hairline and it will fill out the forehead and lower the side hairlines.
Hairline lowering is achieved through FUT or FUE technique. For hairline lowering we can use as many as 3,000 or more hair grafts that can be placed in a single procedure. We perform our procedures under a local sedative and the procedure takes about 7-8 hours. The procedure is generally painless. The grafts are placed in the natural direction of the patient's hair flow. The transplanted grafts will fall out after three weeks, then start to regrow at three to four months. We can implant hairs in areas where hair grows and where hair has never been. We obtain the donor hair from the back of the scalp, the hair will continue to grow for a lifetime. The donor typically heals in less than a week. The only limit of hair transplant is the wait time for a patient to see results. Patients can begin seeing results from six months to one year.
