Hairline Lowering vs. Hair Transplantation

If you suffer from hair loss or want to redefine your frontal hair line, Nashville Hair Clinic offers a full range and variety of state-of-the-art surgical solutions. We will meet with you to determine the nature of your hair loss, and then our specialist will recommend the best medical and/or surgical treatment for your specific type of hair loss. We have great success with two specific types of procedures: Hairline Lowering and Hair Transplantation. These services are both very effective treatments for rejuvenating your hairline. Understanding them both is the best way to determine which procedure is right for you and your specific situation. Hair Transplantation:

What is it? Through techniques like F.U.E (Follicular Unit Extraction), individual hair follicles are moved from the back of the scalp, which has greater density, to the areas in front that have thinned over time. How does it work? Since it involves moving individual hair follicles, the patient benefits from improved hair thickness that still looks completely natural. What procedures does it involve? Nashville Hair Clinic offers Single-unit (also known as Micro-graft) surgery, NHC Bundles (Multi-unit graft surgery) or a type of F.U.E called the S.A.F.E Technique, which combines the dexterity of the human hands with the technology of a motorized extraction. Hairline Lowering: What is it? Also known as Forehead Reduction, this procedure involves making an incision at your natural hairline to remove a portion of your forehead tissue, advance your scalp, and ultimately lower your hairline.

How does it work? Most hairlines begin somewhere between 5 to 6.5 centimeters above the brow. This procedure works to lower the height of the hairline, which helps to make the face appear more proportionate.

Who benefits from this procedure? This specific procedure is great for women or men with naturally high hairlines or large foreheads, as long as they have a thick hairline and no personal or family history of hair loss. Good scalp laxity and hair density is important for this procedure.

So, which one is right for me? Both procedures are excellent for any person wanting to alleviate concerns related to hair loss or hair thinning, increase confidence, and reduce anxiety. Hair transplantation typically works best for combating male or female pattern baldness not related to a medical condition, or for patients who have hair loss from trauma. This type of surgery is effective at correcting hair that is thin, patchy, or altogether absent. It works best in patient who have gradual, hereditary hair loss. Hairline lowering provides much more dramatic results, as it moves a greater amount of hair in one procedure than hair transplantation. This procedure is great for someone wanting to balance their face proportions or address a disproportionately high hairline. Both of these procedures are effective at addressing hair loss, but also very different.
