It isn’t just the face or the body that gives a person a “feminine” look – the hair and hairline contribute to this as well. In fact, it can be the detail needed to complete your new look. Read on for information on your different options for hairline feminization!
What Is a “Feminine Hairline”?
Men’s hairlines are typically higher than those of women, and the hair very often is higher in the “corners” of the forehead, creating a characteristically male “M” shape. Women, on the other hand, tend to have a more round or oval shape to the hairline, and the hairline is positioned more forward on the forehead than it is on a man.
What Are the Choices for Hairline Feminization?
There are two different techniques used by the experts at Del Rey Face to help patients achieve a more feminine look to the hairline: scalp advancement and hair grafting.
In scalp advancement, the goal is to reduce the height between the eyebrows and the hairline. In this surgical procedure, the hair-bearing tissue of the scalp is brought forward. Individual hair follicles may then be transplanted where needed to reshape the hairline and make it more natural and feminine looking. Most patients report minimal pain after the surgery and only slight swelling in the forehead and the eye area, which can take about a week to subside. Many patients take time off of work to recover from this, typically about a week.
In hair grafting, hair follicles are taken from the back of the head and transplanted to the forehead to fill in areas to create a more feminine look for the hairline. It can take about 6 months to get the final results, but it is highly effective.
These procedures can be done in conjunction with other facial feminization procedures to minimize the number of surgeries and appointments you’ll have to have.
