How does a hairline lowering procedure work?

All Gro hair transplant procedures are carried out from start to finish by a Gro doctor using the most refined and gentle microsurgery hairline lowering technique.

  1. The Gro doctor and a hair growth specialist at a Gro Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Gold Coast clinic will work to design your new hairline to reduce a high forehead. The goal is for your new hairline to look natural and symmetrical.
  2. The number of required follicular units and the kind of follicle grafts required for a natural result and density are counted.
  3. The required follicular units are extracted from the donor area (in most cases, the back of the head) one by one by a Gro doctor. The extraction is a micro-FUE technique designed so there is no visible scarring and it will be undetectable with short hair.
  4. The extracted hair follicles are then placed along the hairline area using a unique implanter tool that gives the Gro surgeon full control over the direction that the hair will sit and grow and the density. This ensures your new hairs are in the same direction as your existing hairs. There are no incisions made, no scalpels used and no scarring. Just natural results guaranteed.
  5. The transplanted hair follicles will continue to grow for life. That means a permanent, natural result that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.

This Gro procedure uses the same painless microsurgery technique that our doctors use for every Gro microsurgery hair transplant. Before the Gro doctor extracts the hair follicles needed you will feel a small prick as the anaesthetic is injected and from then on you will feel nothing. When your hair follicles are injected back into your forehead you will again have the area numbed and will feel a small prick. See what Jacob had to say about this.
