There are many reasons why one might want to lower their hairline. If the face is out of proportion, than this could lead to serious issues with self-esteem and body image. Hairline lowering surgery works to ease these problems by artificially creating a new hairline that sits lower on the forehead than the natural hairline. The procedure is short and heals quickly, to give you a new, more proportional look.
How We Do Hairline Lowering SurgeryHairline lowering surgery takes approximately two hours. Once sedated, Dr. Michael K. Obeng will make an incision across the front hairline so that the scalp can be pulled down. Another incision is made that allows for the removal of excess skin on the forehead. The incisions are closed together using sutures, which secures the new hairline in place.
