Kabaker of Oakland, California, is pleased to announce acceptance for publication by the Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America, of an article entitled “Hairline Lowering”. It will appear in the August issue of the journal.
Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America is a leading medical journal which focuses on current topics in the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The journal provides information on the most current trends in patient management and the latest advances within the field, as well as medically-sound advice on choosing surgical treatment options. Each issue is dedicated to a single topic in facial plastic surgery and presented with the guidance of a guest editor. Guest editors are highly regarded facial plastic surgeons with experience in the latest cosmetic and reconstruction techniques and materials.
Dr. Kabaker is pleased to have been accepted for publication by this prestigious journal. His article entitled “Hairline Lowering” provides detailed information for surgeons on the hairline lowering techniques as performed today. There are many fine points which Dr. Kabaker emphasizes in the article, along with the importance of proper patient selection. The doctor notes an increased interest in this procedure but warns that less than optimal results may occur as surgeons without background in hair work and its innuendos attempt this procedure.
Dr. Kabaker, who performs an average of 60 hairline lowering operations per year, notes that his hairline lowering technique has evolved over the years to include several changes, including changes in the incision and the skin closure. He has found that creating an undulating pattern to the hairline allows for improved results. In addition, refined skin closure techniques have resulted in consistently better results with hair growing through and in front of the scar.
