Lowering a Female Hairline with Hair Transplant Surgery

2/5/2011 5:04:40 AM

Question:

Hello. I'm an 18 year old female and I have a high hairline. I would like to have it fixed as it's been bothering me for years! I would just like to know the price and procedures available in the United Kingdom. Thank you.

Answer:

Lowering a naturally high hairline can be accomplished through both hair transplant surgery and a forehead reduction. Both procedures require a great deal of skill and expertise.

For hair transplant surgery in the UK, we currently recommend Drs. Besaam Farjo and Nilofer Farjo of the Farjo Clinic in London and Manchester. If you are interested in forehead reduction, I suggest either consulting with the Farjos about recommended surgeons in the United Kingdom or contacting Dr. Kabaker in California for his recommendation. He is an expert in the procedure and may know of a skilled surgeon practicing forehead reduction in the UK.

As far as prices go, Dr. Kabaker’s website offers the following information regarding forehead reduction surgery otherwise known as the hairline lowering procedure:

“At present, the cost which includes surgeon's fees, operating room costs, equipment and supplies and most medications is approximately $7000 for a one-stage procedure and double that price for the two-stage procedure which includes the cost of a tissue expander.”

Fees for hair transplant surgery are based on the number of required grafts. In the US, this fee is typically between $4 and $6 per graft.

For further research I also recommend you visit our Hair Restoration Forum and social network.
