This is an advanced surgical technique which is used to lower the hairline or in other words, to reduce the breath of the forehead. Hence, it is also called forehead reduction surgery. It is generally performed on female patients who have high hairline with stable hair loss or no history of progressive hair loss. In the pre-surgery consultation, one should examine the direction of hairs, hairline recession and also the scalp laxity to determine the candidacy of the patient for the hairline lowering procedure.
This can be done in two ways: hair transplant and by scalp flap advancement surgery.
If the scalp laxity is limited or advancement required is much more then one may require a two stage procedure which involves use of tissue expansions.
