Forehead Reduction / Hairline Lowering FAQs
Can I make my forehead smaller or correct an uneven hairline?
Yes, Gro hairline correction or forehead reduction surgery redesigns and lowers the hairline to create a younger, more balanced appearance and a smaller forehead.
What is forehead reduction surgery?
This procedure is popular for both men and women wanting to lower or correct their hairline and help improve facial symmetry. Gro microsurgery is the most refined hair transplant technique where hair follicles are taken from the back and sides of the scalp and are transplanted into the aesthetically designed treatment area.
How can I regrow my hairline?
The grafts that are transplanted have everything they need to grow in their new position – think of it like a pot plant – the plant, the roots and the soil – are all transplanted so that it can grow and flourish in its new location. The best part about a Gro microsurgery procedure is that the results are permanent, so you can enjoy your new hairline for life.
How much does forehead reduction / hairline lowering surgery cost?
The number of hairs to be transplanted will influence the cost of the procedure and the number is different for each individual as everyone’s hairline is unique. For a personalised consultation and quote, please book a consultation, either online or in clinic.
Is the procedure painful?
No, it's not painful. The only thing you’ll feel is the initial injection of the local anaesthetic. Have a look at some of our patient videos to see what to expect on the day of the procedure, during and immediately after the procedure and during the recovery process.
How long does it take?
The procedure can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day – depending on the number of hairs to be transplanted. You will find out what to expect during your first consultation.
How long is the recovery?
Gro microsurgery has the shortest recovery time when compared to other techniques. During your research, you may have learned about the technique where a strip of skin is surgically removed from the top of the forehead, bringing the hairline forward. This type of surgery has a much higher risk for complications, including scarring, uneven skin and an unnatural looking result.
The tools used during Gro Microsurgery are so fine that nobody will be able to detect you’ve had a procedure done. No scalpels, no stitches, no scarring, just 100% natural results. Patients may return to work as soon as a few days to a week following their procedure.
Is the result permanent?
Yes, the result from Gro hairline correction is permanent and natural results are guaranteed.
