I met with the obstetrician Pervan Hanım and I came face to face with a physician who was so sweet-smiling and extremely good at my job, listening, conscious, knowing what she was saying. I would definitely strongly recommend it but its smiling face, accented speech, dessert is enough. Thank you :))

(Translated by Google) Op. Dr. When I went to my stomach with a mass complaint in the stomach, I was told that there was a distressed mass. The operation was successful and I had to stay in the hospital for two days because it was sugar. I have been given interest and interest in my house. No need to get the doctors to get the staff really enjoyed. The floor nurses were very interested in me during the hospital stay. The service really made me and my family happy. Thank you very much for everything in Asia hospital. (Original) Asya hastanesinde Op. Dr. Cenan Oktay hocaya midemde kitle şikayeti ile gittiğimde sıkıntılı bir şekilde kitle olduğu söylenmişti. Ameliyat başarılı geçti ve şekerim olduğundan dolayı hastanede iki gün kalmak zorundaydım. Bana evimi aratmıcak bir şekilde ilgi ve alaka gösterildi. Gerek doktorlar olsun gerek personel olsun gerçekten çok memnun kaldım. Hastanede yatış süresi boyunca kat hemşireleri benimle baya ilgilendiler. Gerçekten yapılan hizmet beni ve ailemi mutlu etti. iyiki varsın Asya hastanesi herşey için çok teşekkür ediyorum.

I do not know of a doctor who is as concerned and dearly proficient as Fahrunnisa Hanim in Dermatology department of Ota Jinemed Hospital. I do this as a person who experienced both Istanbul Maslak Acibadem and Acibadem hospitals in Eskişehir. Do not bother to tell the story. Although I have settled in Eskişehir, I am still coming to Istanbul for all kinds of dermatological problems. Thank you very much.

What you need to know about Hairline Lowering Surgery in Turkey

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 5 facilities in Turkey 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 Turkey?

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 Turkey 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.
