Hairline lowering surgery, also known as scalp advancement or forehead reduction, is a procedure that addresses a congenitally high or recessed hairline. Research indicates that the norm for an attractive headline is between 5 to 6 cm from the top of the eyebrows at their apex at the nose.

Hairline lowering surgery is designed to correct this perceived deficiency and provide a traditionally more attractive hairline. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis at a clinic. Hairline lowering surgery can be performed at the same time as other treatments.

The costs associated with hairline lowering surgery can prove to be significant in the United States. There are safe, professional alternatives at clinics in different locations around the world. Information on these alternatives is available at Qunomedical.

How Does Hairline Lowering Surgery Work?

Hairline lowering surgery requires only local anesthesia. The surgery involves the removal of a strip of skin from the forehead area. The scalp is then advanced forward to the newly created hairline and sutured in place. The procedure itself is fairly quick. Typically, it is completed within an hour. At times, hairline lowering is undertaken with other cosmetic treatments.

The scar associated with hairline lowering surgery will never fully disappear. However, a surgeon can address that issue through hair transplants, which can be done during or after the initial surgery. Through the transplant process, the scar at the new hairline can be hidden completely.

Following surgery, a patient is likely to experience some discomfort. The discomfort typically dissipates within a couple days.

Bruising and some swelling is also likely following the surgery. A surgeon may prescribe a pain killer but an over-the-counter alternative may suffice. The possibility of other side effects is minimal. As with any type of surgery, infection is a possibility. The risk of infection can be lessened through the proactive administration of antibiotics. During the 48-hour period following surgery, a patient usually is advised to take it easy. After that time period, a patient is able to return to most normal routines. Strenuous activity needs to be avoided until the surgeon gives the go-ahead to resume.
