Before and one week after procedure.
This 28 year old patient underwent prior hair grafting to lower her hairline but was disappointed with the density so she underwent a hairline advancement surgery where her hairline was able to be advanced and lowered a full 30mm, or over one inch. Note the significantly greater density achieved with this procedure.
Here the scalp is being firmly pushed forward by as far as it can go, showing fairly good to very good scalp laxity, which will permit, after some additional surgical steps to further loosen the scalp, allow the hairline to be brought forward and down by approximately 3cm (from 10 down to 7cm above the nose), providing a nice aesthetic improvement.
