An overview of a Forehead Reduction

This procedure is typically sought by individuals who have a high hairline or a disproportionately large forehead, either due to genetics, aging, or other factors.

A forehead reduction, also known as hairline lowering surgery or scalp advancement, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at reducing the size of the forehead by bringing the hairline forward.


During the procedure, the surgeon removes a strip of skin and sometimes a portion of the underlying bone from the forehead area, then advances the scalp forward to create a lower and more proportional hairline. The incision is usually made along the hairline to minimize visible scarring.

BEFORE OPERATION

#BEFORE OPERATION

01

BEFORE OPERATION

Depending on the patient's health status and the requirements of the surgical facility, pre-operative tests such as blood tests, imaging scans, or an electrocardiogram (ECG) may be conducted to ensure they are fit for surgery.

DURING OPERATION

#DURING OPERATION

02

DURING OPERATION

The surgeon makes incisions along the predetermined hairline, carefully planning to minimize visible scarring. Then he removes a strip of skin and, if necessary, a portion of the underlying bone from the forehead area.

The scalp is then advanced forward and secured in its new position, effectively lowering the hairline.

AFTER OPERATION

After the surgery, patients are closely monitored in a recovery area to ensure they are stable and waking up from anesthesia safely. 

They also receive instructions on how to care for their surgical site, including wound care, medication management, and activity restrictions.

FOREHEAD REDUCTION METHODS

Several methods may be employed depending on the patient's specific anatomy, goals, and surgeon's preferences;

Hairline Advancement

This method involves making an incision along the existing hairline and removing a strip of skin and sometimes underlying tissue to bring the hairline forward.


The remaining scalp is then repositioned and sutured into place, effectively lowering the hairline. The incision is typically placed strategically to minimize visible scarring along the new hairline.

;

Scalp Flap Technique

In this approach, the surgeon creates a flap of scalp tissue behind the hairline, advances it forward to lower the hairline, and then secures it in its new position.


This technique allows for greater flexibility in adjusting the hairline position and can be particularly useful for individuals with more extensive forehead reduction needs.

;

Tissue Expansion

Tissue expansion involves placing a tissue expander device under the scalp several weeks before the surgery.


This device gradually stretches the scalp, creating excess tissue that can be used to lower the hairline during the subsequent surgical procedure.


Tissue expansion may be suitable for individuals with limited scalp laxity or those requiring significant forehead reduction.

Who Can Have a Forehead Reduction?

Candidates for forehead reduction surgery generally include individuals with a naturally high hairline or those whose hairline has receded over time due to factors such as genetics, aging, or hormonal changes.


It's essential for candidates to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Non-smoking status is often preferred, as smoking can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications following surgery.


Additionally, candidates should have stable hair loss patterns, as significant future hair loss may affect the long-term results of the surgery. Adequate scalp laxity is also necessary for the surgeon to advance the scalp forward during the procedure. Patients with tight or restricted scalp may not be suitable candidates for forehead reduction surgery.
