Hairline lowering in New York is a surgical procedure that works to reduce the overall size of the forehead by bringing the natural hairline down lower toward the eyes. This is a procedure that is mostly performed on women, but men might consider it too.

Why Someone Might Consider This Procedure

On average, the hairline is brought down, up to two inches, depending on the look that you are trying to accomplish. Dr. Ende will take measurements and discuss your desired goals with you to determine how much lowering may be needed during your procedure.

In some cases, this procedure is done along with hair grafting to change the shape of the hairline and fill in the side regions. This may result in a more feminine look and appearance. It may also be done with a brow lift if your eyebrows are drooping.

Looking at the Procedure

Depending on all that is being done during your surgery for hairline lowering in New York, Dr. Ende might administer local anesthesia or put you to sleep with general anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable throughout. After this, an incision is made along the hairline. The scar left by this incision usually becomes less noticeable as the hair starts to grow after the surgery.

The excess skin in the forehead area is removed and the scalp is pulled forward. This results in a new natural hairline and a tighter scalp. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions are closed with stitches and a dressing is put into place.

Dr. Ende will discuss the recovery instructions with you and it is important to follow them exactly so that you are comfortable as you recover and to aid in possibly reducing the risk of complications.
