Hairline Lowering and Eyebrow Restoration
Many people feel dissatisfied with the appearance of a high hairline, which Doctor Kabaker defines as a space greater than seven centimeters between the hairline and eyebrows. This is particularly true of women since a high forehead or hairline is more of a masculine trait.
Both men and women inherit the genetic tendency for a high forehead from their parents. Approximately 20 percent of people in the United States have this trait. Those with African American, British, or Chinese ancestry have the highest pre-disposition.
Hairline Lowering and Forehead Reduction Procedure
Hairline lowering/forehead reduction, also known as hairline advancement, is a simple solution for people with a high hairline. In this procedure, Doctor Kabaker lowers the hairline approximately one inch. This one-step process uses surgical instruments to pull the hairline down.
For people with a tight scalp or who desire to move their hairline more than three centimeters, he employs a two-step process. First, he inserts a circular expander behind the frontal hairline under the scalp. After allowing for a short period of healing, Sheldon Kabaker, M.D. injects sterile water so the expander gradually stretches the scalp. He completes this one to two times per week over a four to eight-week period. The result is a lowered hairline that allows for more styling options as well as a more attractive appearance.
When your eyebrows are thin or missing entirely, it can cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance. These issues can happen due to genetic disorders, over-plucking or waxing of the eyebrows, or scars from facial trauma. Doctor Kabaker removes hairs from behind your ear where it won’t be noticeable for transfer to your eyebrow area. This is because the small, fine hairs in the eyebrows are entirely different than the hair on your scalp. He completes the entire procedure in two to three hours.
Eyebrow restoration is an art form that requires Doctor Kabaker to consider your face shape, natural coloring, facial features, and the final results that you desire. Arch shape, thickness of the eyebrow hair, length of the brows, and space between the brows are additional factors he takes into consideration when planning your eyebrow restoration surgery. This is why he meets one-on-one with each new patient and spends considerable time with the consultation process.
Eyebrow restoration is quickly gaining in popularity because it offers much more natural results than dying, tattooing, or other types of eyebrow enhancement.
