What is Hairline Lowering?

With the surgical procedure of scalp advancement or hairline lowering Dallas facial surgeon, Dr. Saxon, simply moves the scalp forward to lower the hairline.

This procedure can be performed alone or in combination with other treatments such as hair transplants, forehead reduction, and eyebrow lifts. Depending on the patient’s needs, Dr. Saxon can customize a treatment plan to achieve the desired outcome.

Hairline Lowering FAQs

Hairline lowering is typically not painful, as it is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. You may experience some discomfort or soreness in the days following the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Although hairline lowering comes with risks and potential complications like any other surgery, Dr. Saxon, a qualified and experienced surgeon, can perform the procedure with minimal chances of infection, bleeding, and scarring. Overall, the surgery is typically safe when performed by an experienced, board-certified surgeon.

The procedure of hairline lowering is permanent because it involves removing scalp tissue and then suturing the remaining scalp. However, it is possible for the hairline to recede slightly over time as a part of the natural aging process.

After the surgery, there may be a small scar near the hairline where the incision was made. With time and various scar management techniques, the scar should gradually become less visible. However, Dr. Saxon makes sure to create the incision in a less noticeable way.

The cost of Dallas hairline lowering will always have a degree of variation in price based on the individual patient's needs, wants, and bodily condition — this will all be evaluated at your consultation.
