The male pattern hairline can be adjusted to reduce temporal recession and lower the hairline through an incision at the front of the hairline. Reshaping of the hairline is often included as part of a brow recontouring operation by adjusting the incision used for this procedure. It involves excising some forehead skin in front of the hairline which is then lowered and reshaped. If necessary hair grafts can be used to cover any visible scar and lower the hairline further. It is worthy of note that the hair along the natural hairline tends to be thinner and hair grafting in front of the surgical scar can help create this natural look.
