Hairline-lowering procedures are popular among patients with disproportionately large foreheads because a shorter forehead with a lower hairline is considered more esthetically pleasing. A high hairline is a source of self-consciousness that cannot be overcome by camouflaging hairstyles. Although hair grafting is more familiar to patients, hairline-lowering surgery may be a preferable approach to lower the overly high hairline, whereby an average of 2 cm of lowering can be achieved, equivalent to transplanting as many as 3,000 grafts. Here, we present a case of a high hairline or large forehead in a 46-year-old female who underwent hairline-lowering surgery with bone-tunneling suture fixation. The patients and surgeons were satisfied with the overall surgical results.

Abstract

Hairline-lowering procedures are popular among patients with disproportionately large foreheads because a shorter forehead with a lower hairline is considered more esthetically pleasing. A high hairline is a source of self-consciousness that cannot be overcome by camouflaging hairstyles. Although hair grafting is more familiar to patients, hairline-lowering surgery may be a preferable approach to lower the overly high hairline, whereby an average of 2 cm of lowering can be achieved, equivalent to transplanting as many as 3,000 grafts. Here, we present a case of a high hairline or large forehead in a 46-year-old female who underwent hairline-lowering surgery with bone-tunneling suture fixation. The patients and surgeons were satisfied with the overall surgical results.
