When your forehead is large in proportion to the rest of your face, it can stand out more than you'd like. Hairstyles are very important to women, and thinning hair can bring with it reduced confidence and concerns about a loss of femininity. For men, feelings of declining vitality or masculinity often come with a receding hairline. With a forehead reduction procedure, you can bring your forehead into harmony with the rest of your face. While safe and effective, forehead reduction is a delicate facial plastic surgery procedure that should only be performed by surgeons who have experience and specialized training in these types of procedures.

Forehead reduction is an aesthetic enhancement procedure that addresses a proportionally large forehead or a high hairline. This common concern is generally due to genetics and is a part of the facial structure characteristics. Patients may opt for this procedure if they feel like their forehead is too large, out of proportion to the rest of their face, or if they've noticed that their hairline has receded. It can also be performed to change the shape of the hairline and in conjunction with an eyebrow lift. This is just one example of how forehead reduction can be combined with other surgical procedures.
A forehead reduction procedure makes a significant difference in the appearance of your overall facial structure and helps to balance your facial features. Patients who undergo the treatment feel more confident with certain haircuts or styles, in taking photographs, and in social interactions in general.

Forehead reduction surgery is typically most popular among women who feel like they need to wear bangs or fringe because of a disproportionately large forehead. However, it can be performed on any adult who is in good general health and is a candidate for the surgery. This procedure uses an incision right at the hairline and is angled in such a way that new hair will grow out through the incision once it is healed. In some patients with unfavorable hair growth patterns, the procedure may not be recommended.
During your initial consultation for forehead reduction West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Troiano, will ask to discuss your medical history, lifestyle, any medications you take, and anything that may affect your ability to safely undergo treatment. If you are an ideal candidate, you'll be able to discuss the next steps toward scheduling your procedure, including surgery preparation, as well as payment options and costs.
The surgery works by creating a thin incision just within the hairline. This incision is created in a specific way that will let new hair grow through it which reduces any visible scarring once fully healed.
From there, Dr. Troiano removes excess skin from the forehead and brings the hairline down to shorten the length or height of the forehead which produces a more harmonious facial appearance. This procedure typically takes around two to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia. For some patients, multiple techniques are required to achieve the desired results, including rounding out the hairline which helps portray a more feminine appearance or raise the eyebrows. If the hairline is unfavorable, sometimes hair grafting is recommended once the forehead reduction procedure is healed.
