What is Hairline Lowering?
Hairline lowering surgery is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce the height of your forehead or reduce the appearance of receding hairlines. It is also known as forehead reduction surgery, but at our hairline clinic in Turkey, we focus on the aspect of correcting your hairline for a fuller head of hair and balancing the proportions of your face. This can work in tandem with our hair transplants in Turkey.
The Hairline Surgery Procedure
When undergoing hairline surgery, you can expect to be placed under general anaesthesia. There will also be local anaesthetic used around the forehead in order to reduce any pain and bleeding.
The actual hairline replacement procedure will begin with a surgical skin marker lining out the area of forehead to be removed. This is decided with great care to ensure that the cut along the hairline preserves the hair follicles and nerves.
Next the entire forehead will be numbed from forehead to the brow, and an incision is made along the marked area of the forehead and hairline. The skin will be carefully separated from the connective tissue and cut out from the marked area for removal.
The incision along the hairline is then brought down to join the lower forehead incision, this closes the gap and shortens the forehead, resulting in a lower hairline. Finally, the skin is sutured together in a way that minimises any scarring formation. Plus, we will ensure that any minimal scarring is hidden by the hairline upon hair regrowth.
Hairline Lowering in Turkey Recovery
With hairline lowering surgery, you can expect a pretty quick recovery period in which you can often return home within just a few hours after the hairline replacement. However, you will need to return to the clinic in Turkey a week and a half after the hairline surgery for suture removal, and then again you will be asked to return again for check-ups roughly 2 to 4 weeks after surgery.
As with any surgery which requires an incision, you should be making sure to keep the wound clean and allow it to heal properly. Our team at the Turkey clinic will ensure you have all the necessary information and advice you need on how to properly take care of yourself following the procedure, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any further guidance.
