Do you feel like your forehead is too big for your face? Forehead reduction surgery can be an ideal solution. This facial cosmetic procedure lowers the hairline to enhance facial features. This can help you feel more confident about your appearance. If your hairline is receding, this procedure can help combat hair loss to help you look and feel younger.

How Forehead Reduction Works

Forehead reduction surgery removes a section of skin in order to lift and reposition the scalp. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia in around two hours. The size of the forehead is reduced by either moving the hairline surgically or through hair transplantation. You may be able to resume normal activities about a week after surgery. Scarring is minimal and typically covered by hair.

You may experience some numbness or loss of feeling in your forehead after the procedure. This is due to nerves being damaged during the surgical process. The feeling typically returns around three months after the procedure.

Ideal Forehead Reduction Candidates

In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate for forehead reduction surgery, you should schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon will make an examination and recommend the best treatment process. Ideal candidates should have enough hair to move the hairline downward through transplantation. If you smoke, you should plan to quit several weeks before the procedure to help speed healing and prevent potential complications.
