What Is The Cost Of Hairline Lowering?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know how  much it would cost for hairline lowering. Also if I could see before and after results from this procedure because there is only one picture on the website. 

A: The cost of hairline lowering is dependent on whether one needs a one or two-stage hairline lowering procedure. That would depend on how much hairline advancement one wants and what the natural looseness of the scalp is. To better help you with cost, I would need to see some pictures of your forehead and a line draining (use lipstick) of where you want the hairline to be. That will answer the question of whether it is a one-stage procedure or a first stage tissue expander is needed. As a general rule, 10 to 15mms of hairline advancement can be obtained in a ons-stage procedure. More than that will require a tissue expander first to create more loose hair-bearing scalp tissue to bring forward. If you try to create that much scalp movement in one-stage the brows will elevate significantly to cover the extra distance and not the hairline coming forward.

There are few pictures of this procedure on the website because patient confidentiality only allows postings that patients agree to show their face…and most people do not want that. And without patient permission we do not distribute patient photos on the websites or to prospective patients to honor their privacy requests.
