What Is Forehead Reduction?

Forehead reduction is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on bringing down the hairline. Also called a hairline lowering procedure, it aims to help patients achieve a better framing aesthetic for their face overall. As with most cosmetic procedures, less is more when it comes to forehead reduction. We generally will lower the hairline by only a couple of centimeters at most, but the results are still transformative. With a lower hairline, many patients report feeling more confident and comfortable in their facial appearances, seeing a balanced aesthetic that they love.

Benefits of Hairline Lowering

  • Achieve a look that matches your inner self

Am I a Candidate for Forehead Reduction?

Forehead reduction can be an ideal option for patients who want to see enhancements in their hairline placement. This procedure is popular for both men and women, as well as part of facial feminization surgery for patients transitioning male-to-female. An ideal patient will have good
skin elasticity for optimal results, as well as healthy expectations and an understanding of what the procedure can do. It is important for patients to know this is not a procedure for hair loss. While it does move the hairline, it will only be temporary if you are suffering from pattern baldness.

What Is the Procedure Like?

A typical forehead reduction procedure takes about two hours, though this can vary slightly. While you are sedated and comfortable, Dr. Sykes makes the targeted incisions to lower your hairline. Every incision is made with precision so that any scarring is virtually invisible afterward. After your hairline procedure is over, Dr. Sykes will double check to ensure everything is according to your plan. After he is sure everything looks good, you can even return home that same day.

The Recovery Process

Recovery from any cosmetic procedure can vary and depends on your health and the extent of your surgery. It will also be important to fully follow all of Dr. Sykes post-procedure instructions to help along your recovery. When everything goes smoothly, patients can expect about one week of downtime for their initial recovery.
During this time, patients will usually take time off work and focus on healing up. There can be some swelling and discomfort around the treated part of your forehead, but you can manage this easily enough in most cases with proper medication. The more time you give yourself to rest, the better things will be in the end. Be sure to reach out to us by phone if you have any additional questions or concerns while recovering. We will always be happy to provide additional information if needed.

When Can I See Results?

In short, you can see results immediately after your procedure. The surgery itself moves your hairline to its new position. However, it can take some time to be able to fully appreciate the results and see your new aesthetic fully realized. As the swelling and any bruising goes down, you will be able to see your final results start to shine through. For most patients, this will be about a couple of weeks after their procedure. But once you see your results, they will be with you for years. However, it will be important to take good care of your scalp and hairline to ensure that it stays healthy in the years to come.
