Does A Brow Lift Affect Your Hairline?

Since brow lift incisions are made within or just above the hairline, a common worry for patients is that a brow lift will permanently alter the hairline. Dr. Santos delves deeper into the question, “Does a brow lift affect your hairline?”

If performed correctly, a brow lift should not permanently affect the hairline. It is normal to experience some temporary hair loss in the area, but the hair should return as you heal. Though, in people where the hairline is particularly sensitive or already experiencing hair loss, Dr. Santos may relocate the incisions.

Men who have experienced significant hairline recession or are bald are typically not good candidates for brow lift surgery. This is because there is no adequate way to disguise the incisions while providing a good result. Though, Dr. Santos has decades of experience and works with patients to help them achieve their goals with customized procedures that fit their anatomy.

In the vast majority of cases, the hairline is not permanently or majorly affected by a brow lift surgery. To learn more, call us at 206-430-1035 or reach out online via Price Simulator, chat, and our contact form.
