“I was referred to Dr. Harrison Lee by a good friend. I came in for consultation for facial feminization surgery. That included hairline advancement, jaw and chin reduction, nose job, and the shaving of the Adam’s apple. He made me feel so at ease that I booked my appointment the following week. The procedure took about six hours or more. I am very pleased with the results. I’m actually getting my second facial feminization done next week with Dr. Harrison Lee as well.

About Hairline Advancement Surgery
The surgical hairline advancement procedure decreases the overly high hairline whether due to genetics, hair loss, or prior surgery such as browlifts. Most commonly performed on women, where the high forehead can be shortened this procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique desired aesthetic results. Additionally, some patients elect this procedure to change the shape of the hairline, making it more oval or rounded by filling in the upper temporal/side regions, creating a more feminine appearance.
For facial feminization patients (FFS) transforming the male hairline into a female shape, which is oval and lacks recession at the temples, can only be achieved with hairline advancement surgery. Dr. Harrison Lee, a world-renowned expert in this field, will recommend a custom surgical procedure to advance the scalp and reshape the hairline to your desired aesthetic goal.
During the procedure, typically an irregular incision is made between the existing anterior hairline and the forehead. The hair-bearing scalp can then be lifted and moved forwards. The surgery is usually performed either under general anesthesia.
Please note: Hairline advancement surgery can be performed at the same time as brow lift surgery but the two procedures don’t necessarily need to be performed together and it’s important for patients to understand that hairline advancement does not necessarily elevate the brows.
