What you need to know about Hairline Lowering Surgery in Thailand

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 minimze 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).

Before and After

Additional factors to consider:

1. 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 hair styles. Hair Transplantation could be applied to further reduce the appearance of a scar.

2. Hair thinning from Shock Loss can occur immediately after the operation, but this is temporary.

3. The alternative to surgery, is a hair transplant. To achieve the same results without surgery, it could take up to 2 years to get the same length and density of hair compared to the instant results of the hairline lowering procedure.


About Thailand

It's known for its tropical beaches, floating markets, stunning royal palaces and Buddhist temples. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises with brand new high-rise condominium developments next to quiet canal side communities. According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the most popular tourist areas outside of Bangkok are Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Pattaya, all with great yacht chartering opportunities.

Thailand welcomes hundreds of thousands of medical tourists each year, many of which travel for Hairline Lowering Surgery procedures. Medical Tourists travel from all across the globe, particularly from the local SE Asia region, Australia, US, Middle East and an increasing amount are traveling from China. An outstanding private healthcare system combined with a hot tropical climate and competitive prices means that Thailand is now the third most popular destination in the world for medical tourism.
