Forehead Reduction Surgery (Scalp advancement)

What is forehead reduction surgery?

Forehead reduction surgery, also commonly known as hairline lowering or scalp advancement, is a procedure that involves lowering the hairline for individuals who have a naturally higher hairline and/or larger forehead. The goal for this procedure is to reduce the amount of distance between the hairline and the eyebrows. Forehead reduction is popular among all genders but especially female and transgender patients. Typically men have a larger and a more prominent forehead than women, as a female’s hairline is lower down the forehead and typically a rounder shape. This is why the procedure is popular among women and transgender patients that seek a more feminine look.

How is the procedure performed?

Your surgeon will first draw an outline of your new hairline. Then a wave line incision will be made to avoid dark scars. Straight line scars are more apparent than wavy, irregular patterned scars. Once the incision is made, the section of the hair-bearing scalp will be pulled forward to the new hairline.

What is the recovery period for forehead reduction surgery?

Post-surgery, you will experience swelling around your whole face and scalp, however, the major swellings will go down within the first week after surgery. Stitches will be removed 2 weeks after forehead reduction surgery and patients from abroad can safely fly back home after. After surgery, you will experience numbness at the front of the scalp and the sensation will slowly return 3 to 12 months post-surgery. Scar will remain red and elevated throughout the first 2 to 6 months after surgery, and will take 12 to 18 months for the scar to fully heal. A visible scar may still exist, but usually it is mild for anyone to really notice after the first year.
