Create A More Balanced Face

Believe it or not, the location of your hairline has a lot to do with how proportionate your face looks. Adjusting your hairline can also impact how masculine or feminine you appear to others. At the Piazza Center in Austin, Texas, practice founder Dr. Rocco Piazza suggests hairline lowering to patients who seek a face that looks more harmonious, youthful, and symmetrical.

What Exactly is Hairline Lowering?

Hairline lowering involves moving the hairline forward, reducing the size of the forehead for a more balanced facial appearance. Dr. Piazza typically performs this procedure on patients who have a high hairline, a large forehead, a receding hairline, and those who simply desire a more aesthetically pleasing hairline. In broad terms, hairline lowering removes a strip of skin from the forehead and pulls the scalp forward to create a lower hairline. 

What Happens During The Procedure?

Dr. Piazza performs hairline lowering surgeries in a state-of-the-art operating center, where patients are placed under general anesthesia. Then, a meticulously placed incision is made along the hairline and a carefully measured strip of skin is removed. Dr. Piazza then gently adjusts the scalp forward, and then closes the incision. Most hairline lowering procedures take 1-3 hours to complete.

A Smooth, Dedicated Anesthesia Experience

At The Piazza Center, we know that what separates great surgeons from the rest is attention to detail in areas like anesthesia. Dr. Piazza collaborates with Dr. Cady, D.O., who ensures an exceptional experience for each patient, devoid of the fear and stress that often accompanies the anesthesia experience. 

What Is Recovery Like?

Most of Dr. Piazza’s patients find hairline recovery surgery uneventful, and are able to return to work in 5-7 days, on average. Patients should expect to relax during their recovery time at home to allow healing to occur as seamlessly as possible. They will wear a special compression bandage for the initial portion of their healing journey.

Hair washing and strenuous activity are to be avoided until cleared by Dr. Piazza. It is normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, and pain medication will be prescribed for the first few days. After that period, over-the-counter pain relief is more than enough for most patients.

What Results Can I Expect?

A hairline-lowering procedure can be transformational. Each patient’s results are unique to them, since no two faces and hairlines are identical. In general though, Dr. Piazza’s patients can expect the following:

  • A face that appears better balanced and aesthetically pleasing
  • A hairline that makes feel either more masculine or feminine, depending on their goal
  • A corrected receding hairline, making them look more youthful
