The relationship between the hairline, brows, and eyes conveys a lot of information about who we are. The eyebrows frame the eyes, where most people look first on the face. Shaping the brow bone to be smooth with the forehead is a powerful way to feminize the face. Also, the brows can be elevated to lie above the orbital rim (brow bone) and given a delicately arched shape.
The hairline frames the face. Masculine hairlines tend to be lower in the middle and higher on the sides because of the effect of testosterone. To feminize the hairline, the sides and sometimes the middle are brought forward for a softer, more round shape, making the forehead smaller. This can be done with scalp advancement, hair transplantation, or a combination of the two.
We talk about the hairline and the brows at the same time because we can use techniques to raise the brows, lower the hairline, or do both with the same procedure. Each face is different, so Dr. Sturm will tailor the techniques for each patient.
