Hairline Reduction

What is a Hairline Advancement in Atlanta?

Hairline advancement shortens, narrows, and corrects the shape of the forehead by repositioning the hairline to a more desirable location and contour. Unlike a traditional hair transplant, hairline advancement surgery does not leave scars at a donor site, does not have an unnaturally thick or stiff look from using hair collected on the back of the head, and has a shorter growth period.

Hairline Advancement Procedure

At Atlanta Surgical Arts, Dr. C. Carson Huynh is proud to offer hairline advancement to patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their forehead and hairline.  This procedure can often be combined with a forehead and brow lift procedure for those who have a preexisting long forehead or a receded hair line due to hair loss.

Dr. Huynh will make a wavy incision next the hairline and remove a part of the skin. The remaining forehead skin are then advanced stitched back together, resulting in a more desirable hairline position.  A pressure dressing is placed to provide additional support to promote quicker healing.

Due to the nature of the careful placement of the incision, the scar usually heals very well and is hardly noticeable.

Intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is most commonly used for maximum patient comfort.  Once the surgery is completed, the patient is often allowed to return home the same day. The total recovery time is about 7-10 days.
