Is hairline lowering right for me?

Forehead or hairline lowering can be ideal for individuals who are self-conscious about a disproportionately high hairline or a prominent forehead. These concerns may reflect genetic factors, aging, or a receding hairline, with an impact on self-confidence. Candidates for the procedure include:

  • Those who have a higher or receding hairline
  • Individuals with a stable and healthy medical condition who are safe to undergo a surgical procedure
  • Those who feel the forehead is too prominent
  • Non-smokers or those who are willing to quit smoking before and after the surgery

What is the procedure?

Prior to surgery, patients at Guelph Facial Plastics receive a comprehensive private consultation with Dr. Brace, in which their medical history, expectations, and desired outcomes are discussed in detail. Dr. Brace thoroughly examines the facial features, hairline, and scalp to determine the most appropriate surgical approach to achieve the desired results.

Before placing a hairline incision (pretrichial), the forehead is numbed using a local anesthetic. The incision preserves the hair follicles while shortening the forehead. Dr. Brace then skillfully performs the hairline advancement with precision surgical techniques, precisely adjusting the hairline for a natural-looking, balanced outcome.

Recovery and results

Dr. Brace provides detailed aftercare instructions to promote optimal healing and minimize recovery time. As the healing process progresses, patients will witness the transformative results of their hairline lowering procedure. While individual recovery experiences vary, expect to experience mild bruising and swelling around the forehead and hairline areas. The minor nuisance of downtime should be anticipated, with social downtime lasting approximately one to two weeks. During this period, prescribed medications and cold compresses are used to manage discomfort. Dr. Brace welcomes patients from Kitchener, Guelph, Milton, and beyond who seek elegant, natural-looking outcomes in forehead and hairline lowering.
