Should I Get A Hair Transplant Before or After Brow Bone Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wanting to get an FUT hair transplant in May, then potentially do the type 3 brow bone reduction in November. If I did that, would it be a problem? For example, is it possible to get the incision site for the type 3 brow bone reduction to be behind my hairline?

A: It would be far more prudent to do the brow bone reduction first then the hair transplant…that way the hair transplants have no risk of being adversely affected and they then can more judiciously into and around the brow bone reduction scar.
