Whether you are male or female, the quality and quantity of your hair can be a major concern in social situations. While both procedures solve this problem, each procedure is different.
Hair transplantation is a great procedure to combat progressive and hereditary baldness or if your hair has fallen out as a result of trauma. For women who are looking to hide scars near the hairline, it is also a great solution as hair transplantation helps correct thin, patchy facial hair.
The hairline reduction provides more drastic results and moves many more hairs in a single procedure compared to hair transplantation. The density of the hairline and the natural outflow of hair can be treated.
What is the difference between Hairline Lowering and Hair Transplantation?
They are two completely different procedures. As aplastic surgeon, I recommend surgery. Because in forehead reduction surgery, we are looking to solve the main problem by removing excess skin on the broad forehead.
Hair transplants are more of a camouflage technique to cover a large area, meaning the excess skin on the forehead is not removed, but only covered up. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be obvious, and patients may be bothered by this false image.
They may then come in for forehead narrowing surgery to find a solution to the discomfort. This is why we always favor forehead narrowing surgery. We always prefer forehead narrowing surgery because it is more natural and stays for life.
