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.
Hairline Surgery FAQs
Am I a Candidate for Hairline Lowering?
Not everyone is a good candidate for hairline replacement surgery, and it all depends on having a good scalp laxity. This means that your scalp tissue has the ability to stretch. As well, if you have family history of pattern balding, you may also not be a good candidate for hairline lowering in Turkey.
Other than these stipulations, you might find yourself a good candidate for hairline lowering surgery if you have experienced any of the following:
- You have a high hairline.
- You have a large forehead and want to shorten this.
- You have thick hair that is disproportionate to the height of your hairline.
- You have low or heavy eyebrows and wish to change the proportions of your face.
- You have already had a hair grafting procedure and wish to increase your hairline.
Are There Any Risks with Hairline Lowering?
The risks in relation to hairline lowering surgery are very minimal and mostly the same risks that you would expect from undergoing any surgery. However, it is still important that you are fully informed and so please take note that risks include:
- Bleeding during or after surgery.
- Side effects of general anaesthesia.
- Infection of the incision area.
- Potential scarring after the incision heals.
How Will my Eyebrows be Affected with Hairline Surgery?
Please be aware that a hairline transplant will reduce the height of your forehead, and therefore the appearance of your eyebrows may be affected. The surgery will not necessarily raise your eyebrows, however, if necessary, a separate surgery called a brow lift can be performed at the same time as the hairline lowering surgery. Please get in touch for more information and advice on eyebrow procedures available at Vera Clinic.
