Hairline Forehead Reduction

Hairline Forehead Reduction

No need for hair transplant,
Forehead reduction and hairline correction!

id Hairline Forehead Reduction

id Hospital’s hairline forehead reduction not only shortens the forehead length but also

re-designs the shape to balance it with facial contour.

Therefore, it corrects the hairline as well.
Long forehead means it covers over 1/3 of the face.

The surgery’s for people whose temporal region (frontal sides) is shaped in M which makes it look empty, or the region is curved and asymmetrical.

  • Hairline correction that re-designs empty space while keeping the original curve naturally
  • Reducing long forehead to the ideal length of 5.5~6cm

key-point of Hairline Forehead Reduction

Point 1

When you transplant your hair, you can correct your hairline without leaving scars, but collected hair is from the back of your head, which means it’s thicker.


Front hair : very thin and fine
Back hair : thick and stiff

Point 2

No need to cover forehead to wait for hair growth for at least 4 months!

10 days after
2 months after

When you correct your hairline through transplant, you need time for your hair to settle and grow, and only about 2cm grows per month. This is when it’s in the growing phase.

  • About 4 months needed to grow it into bang (1 year for above shoulder)
  • Growth pattern of hair : anagen – catagen – telogen- telogen continued

You can tie a ponytail about 2 months after id Hairline Forehead Reduction

Point 3

No wide scar that’s normally caused by 20cm long incision at the back!


When transplanting hair, it’s collected from the back of your head, either incisional or non-incisional, to forehead or empty hairline.

  • Incisional : width 20cm, length 2-3cm of scab and hair extracted
  • Non-incisional : width 20cm, length 5-6cm of hair extracted

You won’t have any scars left after getting id Hairline Forehead Reduction.

Point 4

Designed hairline that fits your face shape the best!

Customized design for every face shape

In hair transplant, hair fills the empty space, but it’s unnatural since it’s thick and stiff. Hairline forehead reduction, on the other hand, is natural and completes a beautiful forehead line to fit for each individual’s face shape.

  • Long shape : less curve, straight
  • Circular shape : deep curve
  • Angular shape : deep curve, diamond-shape
