Your face is the most complex and identifying feature you have, and the aesthetic appeal of your look rests heavily on the symmetry and balance of your features.

Unfortunately, this balance is sometimes thrown off by a high hairline. Some people are genetically programmed to have a taller forehead and a hairline that starts higher on the facial structure. Other people develop a higher forehead with age due to a receding hairline.

Hairline lowering is an advanced aesthetic treatment that creates a more attractive balance between the hairline, forehead, and facial features. At Sistine Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh, we offer two solutions to this problem: lowering your hairline surgically or lowering it through a hair transplant to bring your hairline down.

Surgical hairline lowering

If you feel your forehead is too high, a properly balanced appearance can be achieved with a custom surgical procedure. Our nationally acclaimed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Leong, can lower your hairline by surgically removing a portion of the excess forehead skin, bringing your hairline slightly lower on your face. Recovery time from this surgery averages only one week, with some patients returning to their routine in as little as two days.

The skill and experience of Dr. Leong are remarkable. His advanced surgical techniques allow him to perform this surgery with a method to limit scarring. The surgical scar will be almost entirely hidden by your hair, making it virtually impossible to see. Instead, your facial appearance will be balanced and more in harmony with your other features.

Transplant hairline lowering

If you would prefer a less invasive approach to bringing your hairline down, we can also adjust your hairline with a customized hair transplant. Lowering your hairline with a hair transplant involves extracting live hair follicles from a donor site on the back of your scalp and artfully replacing them in the shape of your new hairline. This procedure is minimally invasive and has little recovery time — although you may wait up to 12 months to see the final results.

The benefits of lowering your hairline

  • The freedom to wear any hairstyle
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • Improved symmetry and aesthetics in your facial structure

Am I a candidate?

The best candidates for hairline lowering are women and men who:

  • Feel their forehead is too high and disproportionate
  • Are self-conscious and try to hide their forehead with a hairstyle, hats, or accessories
  • Would like to improve facial aesthetics
  • Have sufficient existing hair to undergo the procedure
  • Are in generally good health

As with any medical procedure, determining whether you are a good candidate will require an in-person consultation and comprehensive review of your medical history. Your safety and comfort are our top priorities.
