Surgical hairline lowering- African American Male

Recommended Posts

  • Senior Member

34 year old African American male who has always had a high hairline. He has not lost any hair, and there is no male pattern baldness in his family. He wished to have a lower, thick hairline.


The first picture shows two preoperative views. Note the location of the pitted scar which is 3cm below his hairline. The second picture shows the preoperative markings and the immediate result showing the hairline lowered 2.8cm. The remaining paired pictures show his result before and after only 11 weeks.


This type of procedure is best done on males who have this situation, namely a high hairline, a flexible scalp, and no history of hairloss. This is not a good procedure for male pattern baldness.

very nice results and improvement

so the incision and closure is made just in front of the existing hairline?


seems to be an option mainly for women and men with no history of hairloss as you mention

have you ever seen it performed after hair transplants have grown in well and hairloss stabilized?

go dense or go home
