Forehead Reduction Surgery
A receding hairline at the anterior or front of the head can make the forehead appear larger and add age to your appearance. This is common in women for a variety of reasons, including hairline receding due to aging, medications, genetics and excessive pulling on the hair from certain hairstyles. Kalos Hair Transplant offers forehead reduction surgery, which is a type of hair transplant surgery that lowers the hairline and reduces the size of the forehead.
Although men can also undergo forehead reduction surgery, this type of hair transplant surgery is more common in women. Since many men also have male pattern baldness or thinning hair, other types of hair transplants are more appropriate. This surgery is designed to add one to two inches to the front hairline, creating a more youthful appearance and a smaller forehead with increased hair for styling.
Some women may wish for more than two inches to be added to their hairline. It is important to understand that even with this surgery, the hairline should not be brought back to the same position as in youth. This can look unnatural. However, when more than two inches are needed, stretching or adding tissue under the scalp can allow for extended movement of the hairline.
If you have thinning hair with a receding hairline, Dr. Ben Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon that can help lower your hairline. Dr. Stong implements the NeoGraft system for hair transplant, a scarless, “no touch” hair transplant method that obtains excellent results with a quick recovery. Since Dr. Stong is also an experienced plastic surgeon, he can also perform other cosmetic procedures like a brow or eyelid lift that can complement your hairline lowering surgery.
