I’m 17 year old female. I have had a high forehead since I can remember. I’m interested in the hairline lowering. What exactly are the procedures? Do you use my own hair? I have curly hair, how long after the surgery are you able to do hairstyles? How much is it to lower about an 1 inch?

The amount of lowering is about an inch, depending on the looseness of your scalp. A hairline lowering procedure is similar to a brow lift, excepting instead of pulling the scalp higher, it is lowered. Recovery is very fast and within a week. You should be able to have your hair styled, but there are sutures placed in the hairline which would have to come out in about a week.

Dr. Sheldon Kabaker’s website has a great Frequently Asked Hairline Lowering Questions page that should answer any additional questions.
