What is Forehead Reduction Surgery?
Also known as hairline lowering, forehead reduction surgery is a surgical technique used to lower the hairline by a couple centimeters or more to achieve a more balanced forehead height and hairline. A high hairline and the resulting big forehead are typically due to genetics. However, other causes of a high hairline can include tight hairstyles worn on a regular basis, which can lead to alopecia, in addition to a gradual thinning or loss of hair, and prior surgeries such as a brow lift. Regardless of the cause of the high hairline, forehead reduction surgery is a good surgical option for patients who qualify.
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.
Is Forehead Reduction Right for Everyone?
While men and women may be candidates for forehead reduction, the procedure is most commonly performed on women. In general, forehead reduction can be a good option for female or male patients with a high hairline and otherwise thick hair, with no family history of hair loss or baldness. Hair loss can eventually reveal the scar, which is why the procedure is not always recommended for men. For either male or female patients who do not qualify for forehead reduction surgery, hair transplants are a good potential alternative. Additionally, hair transplants are sometimes performed in conjunction with a forehead reduction surgery to help achieve the desired results.
