What is Hairline Lowering?

Hairline lowering (which may be called forehead reduction) moves your scalp, re-positioning your hairline. At Shah Plastic Surgery, we combine world-class techniques and next-generation technology to achieve results that appear entirely natural, and exceptionally attractive.

Lowering Your Hairline to Create Facial Balance

Hairline lowering is a surgery that moves your scalp forward to change the position of your hairline on your forehead. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that can create a different hairline and change your facial proportion to be more harmonious and balanced. The procedure leaves minimal scarring, thanks to Dr. Shah’s skills and the placement of the incisions. With hairline lowering, Dr. Shah, recognized as the region’s leading facial plastic surgeon, can perform this surgery to:

  • Shorten the distance between your eyebrows and your hairline
  • Move a higher hairline lower
  • Increase fullness at your hairline
  • Create the ideal facial balance between chin, mid-face, and forehead

Is Hairline Lowering a Complex Procedure?

Every surgery is customized to the individual patient. On the day of your hairline lowering in Springfield, MO, anesthesia will be administered. Dr. Shah will mark your hairline and forehead with a surgical marker and numb the area to be treated with a local anesthetic.

During the hairline lowering procedure, he will make an incision to loosen the area of your scalp he has marked and will bring it lower, removing excess skin, and then meticulously suture the incision. The session generally takes 1 to 3 hours, and you can return home on the same day following a brief recovery period.

Do I Need to Take Off Time From Work?

After the procedure, most of our patients return to their normal schedules the following day. Dr. Shah will give you some pain medication for your first few days. You can expect some swelling, bruising, redness, and minor discomfort, but the healing process is typically smooth.

As you heal, we recommend you keep your head elevated, including while sleeping. Dr. Shah may use dissolving sutures or removable sutures, based on the technique needed for you. We will be monitoring your recovery and are always available to answer any questions or concerns.

You will need approximately six months for full healing, with results that will last a lifetime. Dr. Shah and his team offer an exceptional level of personalized care and are dedicated to achieving superior results with hairline lowering surgery.
