The forehead typically takes up one third of the area of your face, but some people find that this region is larger than others. This disproportion can often lead to self-consciousness and body image issues. Forehead reduction surgery is designed to bring your hairline lower onto your forehead so that you can maintain a properly proportioned facial structure.
How We Do Forehead Reduction Surgery
Forehead reduction surgery is performed in a very short amount of time. While the patient is under anesthesia, Dr. Michael K. Obeng will make an incision at the front hairline bordering the forehead, and the excess forehead skin is removed. The scalp is brought forward and sutures are placed to close the incision and hold the new hairline in place. The procedure takes roughly two hours and the patient can go home afterwards.
What Does Forehead Reduction Surgery Treat?
- Reduction in forehead size by one inch or more
