View the video examples that we encourage those considering hairline lowering to could make and e-mail that could help us determine whether one is a good candidate for a one stage hairline lowering / forehead reduction.
|The movie shows what I think is good scalp flexibility on myself and my assistant surgeon.This would allow us to lower a hairline (if one has one) at least 2 and probably 2.5 cm.|
|Pinch Test – Type 1|
|Excellent – Scalp / forehead inch test which should allow about 3 cm of shortening of the forehead (lowering of the hairline)|
|Pinch Test – Type 2|
|Good – Scalp / forehead pinch test for forehead / scalp flexibility. This amount should allow for 2-2.5 cm of shortening of the forehead (lowering of the hairline).|
|Ruler Measurement Test|
While pressing down firmly, pull up on a point below hairline as high as possible and set that point of the fingertip at zero
Push fingertip as far downward as possible and take measurement of the movement.
We like to see 2 cm or more of excursion
