Some women develop changes in their hairlines as they age that make them look more masculine due to receding corners. These defects are very evident in women with very dark hair and light skin (like the Asian patient below), more so than in women with blonde hair and white skin or brown hair with olive skin tones.
These changes occur with many women who undergo plastic surgery, as their hairlines are often negatively impacted by face lifts and brow lifts. The changes tend to become noticeable rapidly after their plastic surgery is done, while others who did not have any such cosmetic procedure will barely notice the changes as they occur very slowly over the years. There are many women who show miniaturization in the corners of the hairline that may eventually lead to the type of changes shown here.
We love doing these surgeries as the patients are most grateful.
The before photo is below on the left, the after photo is on the right. This was done in a single procedure of 1800 grafts, mostly in the corners with some work in the frontal hairline. The after photo was taken about 18 months after her surgery. Click to enlarge.
