Can I Undergo A Frontal Hairline Advancement If I Have A Previous Coronal Scalp Scar?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in the following procedure: Harline lowering/ Facial feminization surgery – but has the following question: I’ve had a previous (coronal) incision from a different surgery and am now unsure if i’m able to be possible to go ahead with this procedure with Dr Eppley. Do you know if this is a possibility?

A: Unless the location of the coronal incision is at the frontal hairline then a frontal hairline advancement can not be safely done. It can technically be done but there is increased risk of hair loss between the two incisions.
