What Is Forehead Reduction Surgery?
Also known as hairline lowering, forehead reduction is a surgical technique used to lower the hairline by two and a half to three centimeters. Hairline lowering surgery helps achieve a more balanced forehead height, and can improve the appearance of the eyebrows and other facial features in the process.

Improving the Balance of Your Entire Face Forehead Reduction Surgery Results
vs. Brow Lift
Though both surgeries sound similar on the surface, they are completely different. Forehead reduction reduces the prominence of a person's brow, while a brow lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that removes sagging skin and forehead wrinkles.
Causes of a High Hairline
GeneticsOur genes play a major role in how we look. If your parents or any other relatives have a big forehead or noticeably high hairline, chances are you'll also have the same traits.
Tight HairstylesHairstyles that pull or tug at the scalp can lead to a high hairline. This includes cornrows, buns, ponytails, dreadlocks, weaves, extensions, and tightly braided hair.
Hair LossBalding can cause a receding hairline, making the forehead more prominent. While hair loss is often associated with men, women can also experience hair thinning.
Prior Forehead SurgeriesSometimes a prior surgery on the brow or forehead can lead to changes in the hairline. This includes cosmetic brow lifts and other kinds of forehead procedures.

Recovering from Forehead Reduction Surgery Healing and Aftercare
Most forehead reduction patients are able to return home a few hours after the surgery is completed.
Common Side Effects
Bruising, swelling, and discomfort of the forehead and scalp are common after surgery. Patients can take pain medication as instructed, get ample rest, and keep the incision sites clean.
Activities to Avoid
Patients should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous physical activities until they are advised otherwise. This allows the brow to heal and helps prevent surgical complications.
Patients will return to our Chicago, IL, practice a few times so we can monitor their healing progress. We can also answer any questions between these office visits should they arise.
Will There Be a Visible Scar? Life After Hairline Lowering
No. With forehead reduction surgery, the scar is not only hidden in the hair, but hair will grow through the scar, making it even more inconspicuous.
