Forehead Reduction Surgery
When you see pictures of yourself, does your forehead stand out as the most prominent feature? When the space between your eyebrows and hairline seems disproportionate, it can create an unbalanced and older appearance. A receding hairline is often the culprit, both in men and women, changing the facial appearance as well as the fullness of hair. Dr. Rousso offers forehead reduction surgery to lower the hairline and create a more youthful and balanced symmetry to the overall appearance of the face, forehead and hairline.
An inch or more of exposed forehead due to a receding hairline can make a significant difference in your appearance. This is common in women who have experienced thinning in their hair over time, combined with a slow recession of the hairline. To reduce the size of the forehead, a hair transplant can be used. This can help rebalance the face and create a more youthful appearance.
With hairline lowering, hair follicles are harvested from other areas on the scalp and transplanted to the forehead hairline. This can add one to two inches of hairline and reduce the exposed area of the forehead. This procedure is most suitable for those who have had a slow progression of thinning and receding hair, usually women, that has stabilized in the last year. However, it can be used for certain types of receding hairlines in men, especially those without male pattern baldness or significant hair loss in recent months.
For those who want to create a more youthful appearance with a lowered hairline and reduced exposure of forehead, contact our office in Manhattan to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rousso. During your consultation and exam, Dr. Rousso can discuss the options available for forehead reduction surgery, including hairline lowering with transplant procedures.
