One of the traits that makes a face attractive is balance. Our eyes perceive the face in sections – the top third, middle and bottom third. When any of these portions of the face is larger that it should be, it throws off the balance and can be perceived as unattractive. A long or large forehead due to a high hairline can throw off facial balance, but it can be remedied by forehead reduction.
What Is Forehead Reduction?
While there are forehead reduction procedures that are accomplished through plastic surgery, those are more invasive and require moving the scalp with surgery. Another way to achieve the same effect is with hair transplant procedures. The hairline is lowered, but instead of physically moving the scalp, hair grafts are transplanted to the front of the hairline. This can effectively reduce the height of the forehead by lowering the hairline.
FUE for Hairline Lowering
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is ideal for forehead reduction with hairline lowering, especially when using the NeoGraft® FUE hair transplant system. The procedure removes hair grafts from the back of the scalp and places them strategically along the front hairline to bring it farther down on the forehead. There are no incisions and no visible scarring, which creates a natural appearance. The FUE hairline lowering can be completed in one session with no pain and minimal downtime required.
Both men and women with high hairlines can benefit from a forehead reduction procedure. Whether you genetically were born with a high hairline, or you have experienced a receding hairline, FUE with NeoGraft can create the smaller forehead and thicker front hair you desire. An inch or so of lowered hairline can make a significant difference in your facial balance, bringing the focus back to your eyes, lips and other attractive features.
If your forehead seems disproportionately long or large, a hairline lowering procedure with the NeoGraft FUE hair transplant system may be the solution.
