How does a hairline lowering procedure work?

Every one of Gro’s microsurgery hair transplants is carried out by a Gro doctor. Every hair is extracted and put back in by the same doctor using the most refined and gentle microsurgery forehead reduction technique.

How it works:

  1. The Gro hair growth specialist and Gro doctor at a Gro Manchester clinic will design your new hairline to reduce a high forehead ahead of your lowering surgery. The goal of a good hairline lowering procedure is for your new hairline to look natural and symmetrical with your facial features and for the new hairline to be dense with the hair sitting the same as your existing hair.
  2. Once you are happy with your new hairline, the number of required follicular units and the kind of follicle grafts required for a natural result and density are counted.
  3. The required follicular units are extracted from the donor area (in most cases, the back of the head) one by one by a Gro doctor. The extraction is a micro-FUE technique designed so there is no visible scarring and it will be undetectable with short hair.
  4. The extracted hair follicles are then placed into the forehead skin along the hairline area using a unique implanter tool that gives the Gro surgeon full control over the direction that the hair will sit and grow and the density. This ensures your new hairs are in the same direction as your existing hairs. There are no incisions made, no scalpels used and no scarring. Just natural results guaranteed.
  5. The transplanted hair follicles will continue to grow for life. That means a permanent, natural result that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.

Can your forehead get smaller?

The size of your forehead is between your eyebrows and your hairline. By lowering your hairline we can effectively reduce the size of your forehead.


How low can you reduce my forehead?

It would look unnatural to have your hairline too low. A good way to check where your forehead finishes and your scalp begins is to look in the mirror and raise your eyebrows. Slightly above your highest forehead wrinkle is typically where your scalp begins. It would look weird of you had hair growing out of forehead wrinkles! During your consultation with a Gro hair growth specialist, you can have your new hairline drawn on and adjust to your liking.


Is hairline lowering surgery painful?

This Gro procedure uses the same painless microsurgery technique that our doctors use for every Gro microsurgery hair transplant. Before the Gro doctor extracts the hair follicles needed you will feel a small prick as the anaesthetic is injected and from then on you will feel nothing. When your hair follicles are injected back into your forehead you will again have the area numbed and will feel a small prick. See what Jacob had to say about this.


Can I get surgery to make my forehead smaller?
