Beverly Hills Hairline Lowering

Hair Lowering in Beverly Hills

A naturally high hairline creates a disproportionate balance between the forehead and the rest of the face. It can also suggest the appearance of a receding hairline when no such loss exists. The typical hairline begins somewhere between 5 and 6.4 centimeters above the brows; any more than this can result in an irregular look.

Hairline lowering, also known as forehead reduction or hairline advancement, drops the hairline by shortening the height of the forehead. Dr. Diamond is an expert in the hairline lowering procedure and has performed this technique on patients from around the world.


Who Can Benefit From Hairline Lowering?

Women With High Hairlines

Some women are born with naturally high hairlines, others’ hairlines heighten in response to particular hairstyles, such as tight ponytails or buns. Hairline lowering can shorten the forehead and return a more proportional facial structure for women who do not wish to hide their foreheads with bangs.

Men With High Hairlines

While some men’s hairlines raise in response to genetic hair loss, others are born with long foreheads. Hairline lowering can improve the appearance of the scalp in men with naturally high hairlines, giving the appearance of a fuller and thicker hairline.

How Is Hairline Lowering Performed?

Hairline lowering is a simple procedure designed to drop the hairline to the 5 to 6.4-centimeter line above the brows. This technique is performed under anesthesia to limit any discomfort and help ensure safety.

An incision is made along the hairline through which excess skin and tissue are excised from the forehead. This is why it is necessary to have some forehead laxity and a thick hairline before the surgery. The hairline will then be pulled forward to meet the top of the forehead.

Removable sutures will close the incisions.

What Are Your Concerns About Hairline Lowering?

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Hairline Lowering?

Hairline lowering is an outpatient procedure, and you will be able to return home within hours of the treatment. Initially, patients may experience tightness or tenderness in the forehead—this is normal. Many hairline lowering patients develop swelling and bruising in the forehead, scalp, eye, or cheek area. While most of this swelling will subside within a few days, some swelling may linger for a couple of weeks.

Most hairline lowering patients are healed enough to return to work within a couple of days; however, they may choose to wear a scarf or large hat to camouflage the incisions. Sutures are removed after one week.

Will There Be Scars After My Hairline Lowering?

Incisions for hairline lowering are made along the hairline and will, therefore, be camouflaged by the hairline. We recommend protecting your incisions from the sun while they heal as excessive sun exposure can alter the pigment in the skin and worsen the degree of scarring.

How Much Does Hairline Lowering Cost?

Your hairline lowering treatment is tailored to your specific needs, and this personalization will impact its total cost. The surgeons at the Diamond Face Institute will provide you with an accurate cost estimate once they have had a chance to evaluate your needs. This estimate will include all surgical factors, including surgeon’s fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and pre- or post-surgical tests and appointments.

We offer financing options through CareCredit®.

Is There Pain Involved With Hairline Lowering?

Hairline lowering is performed under anesthesia to prevent any physical pain during the treatment. Some mild discomfort may develop in the hours and days following your hairline lowering, which can be alleviated with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hairline Lowering

Am I a candidate for hairline lowering?

Hairline lowering is appropriate for adult men and women with naturally high hairlines, creating disproportionately large foreheads. Candidates should have a thick hairline, no personal or family history of hair loss, and some scalp laxity. A simple pinch test is a good way to determine whether you are the right candidate for the procedure.

What is discussed during my hairline lowering consultation?

A consultation with the Diamond Face Institute is essential to your hairline lowering treatment. During this meeting, Dr. Diamond will take measurements of your forehead and evaluate whether you have the necessary scalp laxity to allow this procedure to be successful. This consultation will give you the opportunity to discuss the procedure and any combination treatments you may be interested in.

Do you offer virtual consultations for hairline lowering?

The Diamond Face Institute offers virtual consultations for those who live out of town or are otherwise unable to visit the office for a consultation. This virtual meeting can be carried out via Skype, phone, or email.

How should I prepare for my hairline lowering?

Hairline lowering is a surgical procedure that is performed under anesthesia. To prevent complications, we ask you to stop smoking and taking all blood-thinning medication for at least two weeks before and after your hairline lowering treatment. This will help to ensure a safer surgery and recovery process. Dr. Diamond will provide you a list of recommendations for the best way to prepare.

Should I combine my hairline lowering with other procedures?

Hairline lowering requires the shortening of the forehead. Patients choosing to undergo hairline lowering may also benefit from Diamond Facial Rejuvenation. Diamond Facial Rejuvenation may involve a series of facial surgeries that restore youthful, more defined contours. This process may involve brow lift surgery to assist the transformation of the forehead area further.

Hairline lowering is not designed for patients with thinning hair or significant hair loss. If you are suffering from hair loss, consider a hair transplant. The Diamond Face Institute offers several surgical hair transplantation techniques to help restore fuller, thicker hair.

Is there a non-surgical alternative for hair restoration?

Although there is no non-surgical technique that can lower the hairline, men and women suffering from thinning hair can benefit from Dr. Diamond’s signature treatment, the Diamond InstaMane. This revolutionary multi-step non-surgical hair therapy uses a combination of PRP and laser helmet therapy to stimulate the hair follicles, which has been shown to result in fuller, thicker hair. This treatment is available to both men and women seeking hair restoration and the confidence provided by a thick hairline.
