I've been coming here for treatment for some time now and at first, I wasn't sure but as time passed I realized the staff was very in tune with the patients and very friendly. I have a fear of needles, but they are brilliant. Hardly feel anything. They offer various treatments so you'd have to check what suits your needs but I can recommend it and will continue here for the foreseeable future

hours researching FUE transplant doctors and clinics all over the world and we landed on Bangkok as the best place for the procedure. After contacting dozens of clinics and corresponding over many emails it was clear that Hairsmith clinic was the way to go. We made this decision based on the excellent communication from the front office team, competitive pricing and before and after photos. From the very beginning the office staff was so friendly, responsive, professional and thoughtful with our needs. It was a bit daunting for my partner to travel by himself to Bangkok for the procedure but he was well taken care of by the Hairsmith clinic team. The service provided before, during, and after was outstanding and I would definitely recommend Dr. Prima to anyone looking to get this procedure done. It’s been 12 months now since the procedure and his hair is much fuller around the front, top and sides. Thanks, Wanwisa, Utoo and Dr. Prima!

(1) REASONABLY PRICED. The lower prices had originally deterred me from making an appointment here. US $5,900: Eyelid surgery, Nose augmentation, Alar Reduction, and Jaw reduction surgery. Bumrungrad asked me to pay 500,000 Baht (US $14,200) just for Jaw & Brow Ridge Reduction. Destination Beauty wanted US $8074 (Eyelids 44,000 Baht, Jaw Reduction 120,000 Baht, Nose 120,000 Baht). I originally chose Destination Beauty (DB) but they flaked on me twice while I had arrived in Bangkok(!) so I immediately called Dr Pichet @ Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic. (2) APPEARANCES. Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic suffers from a weak website and its unappealing brick & mortar building. Both do dissuade people from venturing deeper. But go in. Friendly staff (Manager Takky & her team) and the doctor himself Pichet. He calmed my fears as I had just come from my disappointing non-meeting (the doctor was a no-show) with DB. (3) SURGERY. The next day they picked me up at the hotel. The operating room had at least SEVEN assistants in green. After the surgery I spent the night at the clinic and had 2 nurses accompany me over night. The next day I was given a driver to take me back to the hotel. No pain. I did not have to take either of 2 types of pain medication. If Dr Pichet was struggling as a business I would highly recommend he get a new website and a new location. But he does work alone in all 5 glorious stories of his own clinic and I can see how he can get comfortable there. After all it's HIS place. The best that I can suggest to anyone that is having plastic surgery is MEET with the doctor. Destination Beauty does NOT allow you to meet or even TALK to the doctor over the phone before your arrival (and I came all the way from San Francisco). That's a red flag. Meet with your doctors. See what they're like. See if you two mesh. I think that you'd find confidence in Dr Pichet.

What you need to know about Hairline Lowering Surgery in Thailand

Hairline Lowering Surgery, Before and After

Also known as Forehead Reduction, Forehead Contouring or Scalp Advancement, Hairline Lowering Surgery allows patients to lower their frontal hairline and is most common among women with high hairlines, often the result of hair loss.

The procedure usually takes a couple of hours and is performed under general anesthetic as an outpatient. The new hairline is marked on the forehead, the surgeon will cut away this excess skin and the scalp is lowered to the new hairline. Incisions are strategically placed so as to minimize the visibility of the scar, making it virtually undetectable as it's covered by hair. It's common to combine hair lowering surgery with Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS).

MyMediTravel currently lists 8 facilities in Thailand offering Hairline Lowering Surgery procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Hairline Lowering Surgery can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What does the Procedure Involve?

It is an outpatient procedure performed under local or general anesthesia. Before the operation begins, the surgeon draws an anticipated post-operative hairline. The surgery is performed according to this and an incision is made along the hairline. The excessive scalp is cut and removed and the rest is stretched to the new hairline. If this is not enough, tissue expanders are used to make it to the new hairline level. Sutures are used to fix the scalp to the bone and incisions are stitched with bandages being applied over the top. The incisions are placed where the hair can regrow, making the scars invisible. With further growth of the hair, scars will completely disappear from view.

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

Hairline lowering surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to complete in the operation theatre. After the effects of the sedation subside, you are allowed to leave. Still, you should aim to stay in Thailand for at least 6 days post-op. During this period, you will have a follow-up with the surgeon to check everything is healing as expected and the sutures are removed, usually after 5 to 6 days - this is when you're given the all-clear to travel home.

What's the Recovery Time?

It will take between 3 to 6 months to allow the regrowth of hair through the scar, which is important as it hides the scar. Recovery time varies from person to person and some people can get back to their normal routine even after 2 days. 6 to 7 days are usually required to get back to normal activities and you may find some swelling and bruising over your forehead in the early days. Pain is managed with painkillers and all symptoms subside after a couple of days. A numbing of the forehead is common and normal feeling usually returns after 3 to 5 days. 

What About Aftercare?

The following are some useful aftercare tips:

  • Use icepacks in the initial days to help with inflammation and bruising. Ice is effective in reducing swelling immediately.
  • Do not take anti-inflammatory medicines as they increase bleeding tendency.
  • Continue taking painkillers prescribed by your doctor.
  • Try not to look upwards and avoid frowning as this can be damaging to your stitches.
  • Do not lift heavy objects.
  • Keep your head a little higher whilst resting.
  • Ensure that tight bandages have been applied over the wounds and replace regularly with fresh ones.
  • Do not take a bath when the bandages are still intact as a wet bandage can be the cause of infection.
  • Avoid strenuous activities such as the gym, running, swimming, etc. for at least 2 weeks after the surgery.
  • Do not put hair bands or any other accessory on your head for some time.
  • Do not drink or smoke as it will hinder the healing process.
  • Ensure you have a diet rich in vitamin C as it makes the healing process faster.

What's the Success Rate?

The success rate is very high for hairline lowering procedures and the side effects are minimal, but it's worth considering that the scar may be visible with certain hairstyles. Hair Transplantation could be applied to further reduce the appearance of any scarring. As hairline lowering surgery becomes more popular, more females, particularly, are opting for the procedure and to date, no deaths have been reported. Hair thinning from Shock Loss can occur immediately after the operation, but this is only temporary.

Are there Alternatives to Hairline Lowering Surgery?

Surgery is not the only option. Consider these methods before opting for surgical treatment:

  • Grafting hair: with this technique more hairs are grafted along your hairline instead of lowering it. This is also used for the thickening of your hair. A new layer of hair is grafted below your natural hairline. 1200 to 2400 hair strands are grafted. These hairs fall out after 3 weeks then regrow in 4 months. 10 months is required before you'll see the true longterm result. This is a non-surgical alternative to hairline lowering surgery and it is found to be very effective in reducing the size of your forehead.
  • Hairstyling: You can hide a big forehead by styling your hair in such a manner. Of course, this is a non-surgical method. Choose those hairstyles which cover your forehead the most. Some people will use headscarves and hats to also hide their forehead.
