    Ali,

    I’m really not sure which surgeons perfrom this procedure in Ohio. However, you may want to consult with Dr. Kabaker (link to his contact information above) for more information.

    Hacy,

    Age isn’t as much of a deciding factor for women since pattern baldness is typically rarer in women than men. That said, you may want to consult with Dr. Kabaker to see if he feels this procedure is right for you.

    How much is the procedure? Where is Dr. Kabaker located? My forehead needs close about 1.75″ removed, is that to much? I would love to be comfortable in the wind, or pool or even on the boat… Please help!!!

    Stacey,

    I couldn’t tell you the exact cost of the procedure, but I believe it’s probably much cheaper than hair transplant surgery, especially considering it usually takes a couple thousand follicular units to provide adequate density and positioning of a new hairline. Dr. Kabaker is located in Oakland, CA. You can find his contact detail by visiting his recommendation profile.

    Wow..! I didnt think that was possible. This website noted that Dr. Kabaker did a little over 200 forehead lowerings which I dont feel is much at all. However, he does seem like a reputable dr. I want to learn more about this procedure. are theyre any of Dr. Kabakers patients that can speak on his work regarding the forehead lowering. If theyre is anyone that has had a forehead lowering please speak on it. This will help me & other patients determine if they will be a good candidate for this procedure. Yet, I will keep in mind that everyone is different so of course will have different results.

    I din’t know there was a “safer” solution than surgery. I also have a high forhead and I am trying to cover it with hair. I live in the Netherlands, I wonderd if these techniques are also performed over here.

    I just wanted to add my experience of this procedure.

    I had this procedure performed almost exactly one year ago today (in England). My preoperative hairline was 7cms (from top of eyebrows to hairline) and is now 5cms. This operation has truly transformed my life. Before I was always extremely self conscious (I had a fringe and I hated the wind, going to the hairdressers, basically anything that would leave my forehead exposed). Now I can live my life without worrying about anybody seeing my forehead. The operation was performed without complication and my scar is practically invisible. I always remember thinking that one day I would find a way to have my hairline lowered, I just didn’t think it would be so soon (I am 22). For others in the same position I would urge you to seriously look into having this procedure performed, do not wait around for years thinking about it, resolve the issue as soon as you can and live your life to the fullest.

    Kindest wishes to everyone.

    Mary Jane and Stacy,

    While I’m not entirely sure if there are any clinics in the UK that specialize in forehead reduction surgery, I highly recommend contacting the Farjo hair restoration clinic: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/surgeon-list.asp?StateAbr=UK .

    The physicians and staff at the Farjo clinic are experts, and if they cannot perform the desired type of female hair restoration (which could be achieved both by reducing the forehead and by lowering the hair line through traditional hair transplant surgery), they can definitely point you in the right direction. Good luck!

    Staly,

    At your age, it’s probably a bit too soon to think about any sort of forehead reduction or hairline lowering procedure. However, if you are interested in discussing your options with a reviewed, proven hair restoration physician, I recommend consulting with one of our recommended doctors and moving from there:

    Inga,

    I have no information regarding Russian surgeons offering the hairline lowering procedure.

    I highly recommend posing your question in a discussion thread on our Hair Restoration Forum and Social Network. You may find the answer you are looking for there.

    Hello,

    I am interested in this surgery also. Do you know of anyone in Australia who performs this surgery and approximately how much it costs?

    Thanks.

  22. Blake aka - FutureHTDoc
    May 3, 2011 @ 2:32 pm

    Ali,

    As of now, I do not know of any surgeons in Australia who perform forehead reduction. However, keep in mind that for many patients hair transplantation can be utilized to lower a hairline (especially in female patients) as well.

    You may want to contact Dr. Kabaker (http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/doctors.asp?DrID=138#page=page-1) for more information on forehead reduction and review our recommended hair transplant surgeons (http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-loss-doctors.asp) for a possible hair transplantation consultation.

    Good luck!

    Jamie,

    While I do not know of any surgeons in Oregon, Dr. Kabaker (who is renowned for this procedure and is responsible for the above information) is located a reasonable distance away in San Francisco, CA. Here is his contact information: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/Doctors.asp?DrID=138#page=page-1

  26. David aka - TakingthePlunge
    August 2, 2011 @ 2:26 am

    Panta Rei,

    The best advice I can give is you to not allow cost and proximity to influence your decision when considering any type of surgery. This is a complicated procedure that requires a great deal of skill.

    The only clinic we recommend in the UK is Farjo Medical Centre. I don’t know if they offer the hairline lowering procedure but they may be able to recommend a skilled physician in your area.

  28. David aka - TakingthePlunge

    Thomas,

    While forehead reductions are performed surgically, enlarging the forehead is typically accomplished by augmenting the hairline. This may be done with electrolysis or laser hair removal.

    So I have suffered with a large forehead my whole life, Its not just large it is shaped like a man who is going bald like low in the middle but still big but even a inch bigger on either side… I have never lost any hair i have had this forehead my whole life.. i look at other women and wish i could do my hair like theirs but normally i have to part it right down the middle to cover the high sides. 🙁 But is it possible to fix that sort of high forhead? Is there a dr who does it in texas? thank you

    March 16, 2012 @ 5:09 am

    Bobbi,

    There are two methods for lowing a naturally high female hairline. The first is known as forehead reduction surgery or the female hairline lowering procedure. In this procedure, a strip of skin is removed along the hairline and then suture closed in such a manner that the scare is virtually invisible. This is a highly specialized procedure and not all hair restoration physicians perform it.

    A female hairline can also be lowered through traditional follicular unit hair transplantation. While still a highly technical surgery, there are many more hair transplant practitioners worldwide.

    Is there anyone in Atlanta, Georgia that performs the hairline lowering procedure? Thanks

  38. Blake aka - FutureHTDoc
    August 15, 2012 @ 11:16 pm

    Vanessa,

    The hairline lowering procedure is a fairly specific procedure, and it may not be ideal for each patient. In many instances, female hair loss sufferers are actually better candidates for hairline lowering via traditional hair transplant surgery (FUT or FUE).

    If you’re curious about this procedure or female hair restoration, I would investigate Dr. Griffin in Atlanta: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/doctors.asp?DrID=39#page=page-1.

    Good luck!

    hi i’m from dallas texas and i would like to know if there any Dr. that do this surgery but my forehead is really high, does the flexing of my skin have to do with the surgery? and how old do you have to be to do this surgery to be the most effective.
    I’ve having bang for 20 year and i would like to get rid of the bang and face the wind with confidence

    thank you very much

    jennifer,

    For a complete listing of all the hair restoration physicians in Texas recommended by the Hair Transplant Network, click here. I do not know if any of these surgeons perform the female hairline lowering procedure but they are certainly able to discuss with you your options and candidacy for surgery.

    By “flexing of my skin” I assume you are referring to the elasticity. Yes, most hair surgery will require a certain amount of “stretchiness” to the skin.

    Best of luck!

    I’m not aware of anyone in India performing forehead reduction surgery. However, you may have success in contacting one or both of the hair transplant surgeons we recommend in India. They may perform the procedure and, if they don’t, they may be able to recommend a clinic that does.

    If his clinic does not perform this procedure, they may be able to refer you to one that does.
