Hairline Lowering Surgery for Men
When it comes to men, a higher than average hairline can be a bit more challenging to conceal. Men are not often suited for bangs to cover their forehead and wearing a hat all the time is not a reasonable option.
Men who are candidates for hairline lowering surgery in Toronto (Forehead Reduction Surgery) typically have a high hairline that exceeds 12-16 centimetres above the brow line. Men who are experiencing hair loss, are not best suited for this procedure. However, men who have already undergone hair grafting and are looking to lower their hairline, are qualified for Hairline Lowering Surgery. Men, who choose to have Hairline Lowering Surgery first, can then seek hair grafting or a hair transplant once they have healed, approximately 8 months following surgery. In combining these procedures, men can achieve great results that can restore their confidence and self-esteem.
Hairline Lowering Surgery for Facial Feminization
Facial Feminization Surgery in Toronto is also known as FFS or Transgender Surgery, is a combination of surgeries used to feminize the male face.
Often, men who are transitioning to female, opt for Facial Feminization as their first step so that their physical appearance better aligns with their identity. Transitioning patients also find they are better recognized and identified by others as a female when their physical attributes look more female.
Facial Feminization Surgery is usually comprised of at least 2 or more procedures to feminize the face. Facial Feminization Surgery in Toronto can include rhinoplasty (nose job), laryngeal shave (reduction of Adam’s apple), brow reduction, brow lift, chin implant, neck liposuction, cheek implants, lip lift, lip reduction, jaw line reduction, jaw angling and hairline lowering, also known as forehead reduction.
Due to the fact that a large forehead is a very masculine trait, Hairline Lowering Surgery is commonly sought out to feminize the male face. Hairline Lowering can be combined with any Facial Feminization Surgery. Typically, the first “go-to” surgeries are ones that will reduce or eliminate an obvious male attribute. Such features include brow reduction and a laryngeal shave as a protruding brow bone and a protruding Adam’s apple are common male features. A rhinoplasty is also one of the first sought after Transgender surgeries, as the male nose is often larger than the female nose and can often have a wider base and a more protruding presence on the face. By minimizing the width of the nasal bridge as well as adding a gentle scoop, and by repositioning and refining the nasal tip, a significant change can be made to feminize the face.
Hairline Lowering Surgery alone can help feminize the face as it reshapes the forehead while reducing the height of the forehead. Transgender women often feel more feminine and attractive after they have reduced the size of their forehead.
