You might be wondering about ways to reduce the size of your forehead by lowering your hairline. Maybe the size of your forehead or the high corners of your hairline have left you feeling less confident than you had hoped and you are looking for ways to reduce the size of your forehead or fill in those high corners with hair. With forehead reduction surgery, you can lower your hairline and get the look you have always wanted.
What Are My Options?
Women that have a high hairline or high forehead may look into hairline lowering and forehead reduction surgery as an option to shape the hairline exactly the way they want it to look. With hairline lowering surgery, you can change the shape of the hairline or fill in the high corners to give a more fuller look. With forehead reduction surgery, you can lower your hairline more than two to three centimeters. It is a little more invasive, and oftentimes may be coupled with the hairline lowering surgery to help cover the scar left by forehead reduction surgery. If you are looking to lower your hairline or fill in those corners, hairline lowering surgery may be a good option for you as this procedure can reduce the size of your forehead with the hairline being lowered. Both procedures can reduce the size of your forehead. Having a consultation with your doctor to talk about what you are looking for is the best way for you to decide what will work for your desired look.
No More High Corners
With hairline lowering surgery, you can fill in the high corners in your hairline that don’t grow as much hair as the other places on your head. This gives a fuller look and the confidence you need when you are wearing your hair up or pulled tightly back in a braid or ponytail.
With hairline lowering surgery, you can bring the hairline forward by implanting hair follicles into the desired areas of where you want hair to grow. This gives the hairline a natural and authentic look because it’s your hair that has been implanted in a different area to grow. No need for oils or medications to try and make your hair grow. The surgery brings the hair to the area and allows it to grow on your head like all the other areas on your head. With your hairline being filled in or even lowered, your forehead will naturally reduce in size so you benefit with a hairline you love and a smaller forehead.
The hairline lowering surgery is less invasive than other procedures because hair grafts are taken from the back of the scalp and then implanted in the desired area for hair growth. The result may be some swelling and redness from implanting the grafts that most likely go away after a few days, and a small scar from where the hair was removed from the back of the scalp that can easily be covered up by longer hair.
It Can Drastically Change the Size of Your Forehead
With forehead reduction surgery, you can reduce the size of your forehead more than two to three centimeters. They remove the excess skin on your forehead by making an incision across your hairline and suturing the skin together to bring your forehead to your desired size. Many people also couple this treatment with the hairline lowering surgery to move the hairline to cover the scar created by the surgery so you can have a full, natural looking hairline while also having reduced the size of your forehead.
Methods for Hairline Lowering
Doctors may use two methods for using the hair on the back of your scalp to fill in the areas along your hairline. The first method is Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), where they take a strip of skin from the back of the scalp and separate individual hair follicles to then implant those hair follicles in desired areas. The option may leave a small scar on the back of the head, but can be easily covered with longer hair. The second method is Follicular Unit Excision (FUE), where hair follicles are extracted from a larger area throughout the back of the scalp, leaving scars that resemble the size of a “pin-prick”. This is a good option for those who have very short hair and want the scars to go unnoticed. With there being other pros and cons, it’s best to discuss with a doctor prior to moving forward with the procedure.
Confidence At All Times
Forehead reduction surgery can give you the confidence boost you need and the look you have always wanted. You can bring the hairline lower and even fill it in to give a more fuller look, or you can take out some of the excess skin and reduce your forehead size to what you always pictured for yourself. Whatever your goals may be, you can look at the benefits of forehead reduction surgery and see if it is the right fit for you.
