Hairline lowering surgery with no stitches or scars

If only there was a filter for forehead reduction! If you’re self-conscious about the size of your forehead or your receding hairline, situations such as video conferencing or taking a selfie can make you acutely aware of the size of your forehead.

Unfortunately, it’s not easy to hide. A high hairline can be much harder to conceal than thinning hair on top of the head. A forehead reduction surgery can help both men and women who’d like to do something about a high hairline.

Hair transplantation is considered one of the best hairline lowering procedures. Modern hair transplants use your own hair follicles from the hair-bearing scalp to correct hairline recession, an uneven hairline or a frontal hairline that is simply higher than you’d like.

Gro hair transplants offer the most delicate method of forehead reduction surgery, with no visible scarring and a faster recovery period.

Start with your diagnosis


Your big day

Onto the exciting part! A hair transplant procedure will usually be done over one day, or two for larger procedures.

There’s no cutting or scarring involved with the delicate instruments we use, but the area is numbed with a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. 

You get to listen to your favourite music during the extraction phase, take a short lunch break and watch Netflix during the implantation phase.


Postoperative care

Now, the waiting game.

Your transplanted grafts will start gro’ing in about 3-4 months after the procedure, but full results can take up to 12 months.

Our team is with you the entire time, checking in regularly and ensuring you’re happy.

Frequently Asked Questions

You probably have a lot of questions about reducing a high hairline, and we’re here to answer them all.

If you can’t find an answer to the specific question you have, just ask us.

Is hairline lowering surgery painful?

Compared to a traditional surgical procedure, a Gro hair transplant is much less invasive, as it involves no cutting or scarring. We use the same, painless PFP technique for hairline lowering surgery as we do for every Gro hair transplant. A local anaesthetic is used to minimise any discomfort.

Can I get surgery to make my forehead smaller?

Yes. A Gro hair transplant can be used to bring down the hairline, therefore making the forehead appear smaller. Your own hair follicles are implanted to the hairline to bring it down, resulting in life-long, natural growth. Our doctors specialise in creating natural hairlines.

How long does it take to recover from a forehead reduction surgery?

Most of our patients take 4-5 days off work to recover from their forehead reduction surgery. However, if you’re working from home or not concerned with a bit of swelling, you can be back to work within 1-2 days of the surgical procedure, depending on the type of work you do.

We offer forehead reduction surgery at all our clinics: Gro Clinics Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Gold Coast.
