Overview of Hairline Lowering
The long and prominent forehead can affect negatively on the face beauty and balance. Several reasons cause high forehead such as genetics or possibly hair loss. For Asian women, usually favourable height for hairline is 5.5-6 cm from the midpoint of the eyebrows. If you wish to have a shorter forehead, don’t worry!

Before Hairline Lowering
Smoking delays the healing process, so smoking must stop for one month before surgery. The doctor should know about medical history and all the medicines of the patient. Some medications like aspirin, Plavix and dabigatran or warfarin and rivaroxaban and any anti-inflammatory medicine like ibuprofen or celecoxib should be held under the doctor’s supervision. Also, supplements such as gingko Biloba, omega 3, fish oil, St Johns Wart and vitamin E must be held due to increasing risk of bleeding during the surgery.
During Hairline Lowering
The new hairline will be marked on the forehead, and after the patient’s confirmation, surgery begins. It is done with local or general anaesthesia depending on patient and surgeon opinion. During the surgery through an incision, maximum 2-3cm of the forehead skin is removed, and the scalp is brought forward. In the last step, the wound is sutured.
After Hairline Lowering
Patients may experience pain on the first days after surgery. The doctor will prescribe some pain killer pills. Ice complex can be a good choice, too. Also, antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection. Hair must not be washed for at least two days. An initial recovery will be expected in 7-10 days after the surgery. An incision remains behind the hair line. However, the scar will be fully covered after hairs regrowth.
