People with a long forehead can benefit from reducing the height of the forehead by lowering the hairline. The ideal position of the hairline helps with the overall contour and harmony of one’s face. In addition, women who have long foreheads may seem to look more masculine which can be unpleasant. With a hairline lowering and forehead reduction, the face will be rejuvenated, and therefore the patient feels more self-confident.
How does the forehead reduction work?
For this cosmetic intervention currently, several techniques are possible. One of the possible options is to implement hair grafts, which is a very effective technique. In this technique, there will be no scar but the whole intervention will be completed in a longer period. On the other hand, you can get a hairline lowering and forehead reduction by a form of cosmetic surgery.
Hairline Lowering and Forehead Reduction: Hair implants
In this technique, normally there are no complications afterward. The hair will grow naturally in its new position and the hair color matches absolutely. Several grafts are taken from the donor or the patient’s own hair and are implemented on the forehead. You should note that as the grafts are taken from the back of the neck, no drastic change is noticeable.
As there is a need for many grafts, approximately 2500 grafts, this intervention may be completed in two separate sessions.
Hairline Lowering and Forehead Reduction: Cosmetic surgery
During your preoperative consultation sessions, your doctor assessing your overall face shape, quality of hair and some other factors may recommend you to get surgery. In this technique, the plastic surgeon removes your hair tissue with a fine scalpel, plus removing the excess skin, and places the tissue in a lower position on your forehead. With this technique, the result is achieved in a shorter period. In some cases, there might be a need for both techniques to be applied for the desired result.
The result of a hairline correction
The incisions from both techniques will be hidden in the hair and therefore there is no worry about the scars. The patient may feel some swelling on the affected areas for a few days but other than this, there will be no pain and they can resume work and daily activities after a week. Although the full recovery can take up to several weeks.
