Novel Principles and Techniques to Create a Natural Design in Female Hairline Correction Surgery.

Author information

Dana Plastic Surgery Clinic, Seoul, South Korea.


Female hairline correction surgery is becoming increasingly popular. However, no guidelines or methods of female hairline design have been introduced to date.


The purpose of this study was to create an initial framework based on the novel principles of female hairline design and then use artistic ability and experience to fine tune this framework. An understanding of the concept of 5 areas (frontal area, frontotemporal recess area, temporal peak, infratemple area, and sideburns) and 5 points (C, A, B, T, and S) is required for female hairline correction surgery (the 5A5P principle). The general concepts of female hairline correction surgery and natural design methods are, herein, explained with a focus on the correlations between these 5 areas and 5 points.


A natural and aesthetic female hairline can be created with application of the above-mentioned concepts.


The 5A5P principle of forming the female hairline is very useful in female hairline correction surgery.
