A forehead that's too high or too large can throw off your facial balance and detract from your proportionate features. When this occurs, forehead reduction (also known as hairline lowering) can move your hairline to a more natural location.
Dr. Reinblatt recommends hairline lowering surgery for patients who:
If your high forehead is due to a receding hair line, forehead reduction is not an ideal option for you.
With this procedure, a scar is made in the frontal hairline. In ideal candidates, this scar will be well-hidden by hair in the area. With a history of hair loss, the scar will be more noticeable. As such, the best way to achieve your desired results is likely with a hair transplant.
Forehead reduction surgery is done on an outpatient basis under a combination of twilight and local anesthesia. It begins with Dr. Reinblatt marking the location of your new hairline.
From there, she will excise the skin between your current and future hairline, before moving your scalp with hair down to its new location. She will then secure the tissue into place with dissolvable bone anchors and close the incisions with two layers. In many cases, she will perform a hair grafting procedure like FUE at the same time to ensure a natural result.
Once your procedure is complete, Dr. Reinblatt will apply a light compression garment to minimize swelling and bruising and promote healing.
Dr. Reinblatt goes to great lengths to minimize the visibility of forehead reduction scars. She will carefully place the incisions behind your new hairline, so they will be covered with your hair. She will also ensure that new hair can grow through the scars, which will further obscure them.
A high forehead can be a major source of self-consciousness for both men and women. Contact Dr. Reinblatt's office today to schedule a consultation and discover if forehead reduction surgery is right for you.Schedule
