Do you find yourself trying to cover your forehead with hats and hairstyles because you feel like your hairline is too high? Or, perhaps, you never gave it much thought, but now your hair is thinning or hairline receding, and a broad forehead makes the condition more noticeable.
Is it affecting your self-esteem and confidence? You may want to consider forehead reduction surgery, a cosmetic procedure that can restore your facial balance. Credentialed plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Erez Dayan at Avance Hair Transplant specializes in this hair restoration treatment.
Whether you were born with an uneven or high hairline or desire to decrease it following hair loss, Dr. Dayan can help you fulfill your aesthetic desires.
What is Forehead Reduction Surgery?
Forehead reduction surgery lowers the hairline to shrink the forehead and corrects temple recession for a rounded hairline. It symmetrizes the hairline and balances facial proportions.
The hairline can be lowered by one to two inches. The excess forehead skin is removed, and the eyebrows may be repositioned. The procedure is completed in one session, taking about three hours under general anesthesia.
Hairline incisions eliminate scarring. In addition, we can combine hairline lowering surgery with a hair transplant to thicken the hairline. Also, three months after this minimally invasive treatment, hair grafting can be done to enhance thickness and cover any exposed scarring.
Forehead Reduction Surgery Benefits
Men and women who want their hairline closer to their eyebrows can benefit from a hairline lowering surgery in the following ways:
- A 3/4-inch or more forehead decrease enhances the face overall, boosting self-esteem.
- Hair regrowth masks post-procedure scars.
- A short recovery time delivers quick results.
- The outcome appears natural.
You should avoid excessive exercise and heavy lifting for two weeks after forehead reduction surgery. After that, you can resume your usual activity.
Ideal Candidates for Reno Forehead Reduction Surgery
Nonsmoking men and women can undergo forehead reduction surgery. However, men shouldn’t have stable hair loss or a family history of male pattern baldness.
