Forehead Reduction Surgery
If you have thinning hair or a receding hairline, a large forehead can make matters worse. Many individuals try to hide the issue unsuccessfully using hats, scarves or different hairstyles. Forehead reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can restore facial balance. Dr. Erez Dayan at Avance Hair Transplant is a credentialed plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in this hair restoration procedure to help you meet your aesthetic needs and goals.
How Forehead Reduction Surgery Works
Forehead reduction surgery works by lowering the hairline by one to two inches and can be combined with other hair restoration methods. The same day procedure is performed under general anesthesia in approximately three hours. Precise incisions are placed in the hairline to eliminate any evidence of scarring. Excess forehead skin is removed, and the position of the eyebrows may be changed. Hair grafting may be done three months after this minimally invasive procedure to boost thickness and hide any potential visible scarring.
Multi-stage treatments may involve an expander to stretch tissue over a period of eight weeks. Swelling, bruising and discomfort may be experienced for the first few days. Numbness may occur around the hairline for a few months. Recovery takes about three weeks, with aftercare instructions to follow that help achieve optimal results. You can resume normal activities within a few days and strenuous activity within a few weeks.
Ideal Candidates for Forehead Reduction Surgery
Both men and women can benefit from forehead reduction surgery. Ideal candidates are typically non-smokers with realistic expectations about results. Men should not have a family history of male pattern baldness or stable hair loss. A surgeon will review your medical history and perform testing during a consultation to determine if this minimally invasive procedure is right for you.
