Frequently Asked Questions

Hairline Lowering Before and After
One of Dr. Saxon’s Hairline Lowering patients.
  1. Is Hairline Lowering Suitable for Both Men and Women? Yes, hairline lowering can be performed on both men and women to address high or receding hairlines and improve facial proportions. However, the hairline must be stable at the time of surgery. Otherwise, hair grafts may be required in the future to keep results.
  2. How Long Does the Procedure Take? The surgery usually takes one to two hours, but the exact duration can vary depending on individual factors and the complexity of the case.
  3. How Much Does Hairline Lowering Cost? The cost of hairline lowering surgery can range from $10,000 to $15,000. This includes surgical facility fees and anesthesia fees, but the exact price can vary based on the surgeon’s expertise and geographic location.
  4. Will I Have Visible Scars? Dr. Saxon uses meticulous techniques to minimize scarring. Incisions are usually made within the hairline or along its natural contours, ensuring scars are discreet and often imperceptible.
  5. What is the Downtime After this Surgery? Patients should plan for around 7 to 14 days of downtime. Swelling and bruising are common but typically subside within this period. Adhering to post-operative care instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery.
