What Is Forehead Reduction Surgery?

Forehead reduction is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on bringing down the hairline. Also called hairline lowering, forehead reduction aims to help patients achieve a better framing aesthetic for their face overall. As with most cosmetic procedures, less is more when it comes to forehead reduction. We generally will lower the hairline by only a couple of centimeters at most, but the results are still transformative. With a lower hairline, many patients feel more confident and comfortable in their facial appearance, seeing a balanced aesthetic they love.

What Happens During Forehead Reduction Surgery?

Your forehead reduction in Beverly Hills will take about two hours, though this can vary slightly. While you are sedated and comfortable, Dr. Sykes makes the targeted incisions to lower your hairline. Every incision is made with precision so that any scarring is virtually invisible afterward. After your hairline procedure, Dr. Sykes will double-check to ensure everything looks according to your plan. After he is sure everything looks good, you can return home that day.

Am I A Candidate for Forehead Reduction Surgery in Beverly Hills?

Forehead reduction can be ideal for patients who want to see enhancements in their hairline placement. This procedure is popular for both men and women, as well as part of facial feminization surgery for patients transitioning male-to-female. An ideal patient will have good skin elasticity for optimal results, healthy expectations, and an understanding of what the procedure can do. Patients must know this is not a procedure for hair loss. While it does move the hairline, it will only be temporary if you suffer from pattern baldness.

The Forehead Reduction Recovery Process

Recovery from any cosmetic procedure can vary and depends on your health and the extent of your surgery. It will also be necessary to fully follow Dr. Sykes’ post-procedure instructions to help your recovery. Patients can expect about one week of downtime for their initial recovery when everything goes smoothly.

During this time, patients will usually take time off work and focus on healing. There may be some swelling and discomfort around the treated part of your forehead, but you can manage this easily enough, in most cases, with proper medication. The more time you give yourself to rest, the better your results will be in the end. Be sure to reach out to us by phone if you have any questions or concerns while recovering. We will always be happy to provide additional support if needed.

When Can I See the Results From My Los Angeles Forehead Reduction?

In short, you can see results immediately after your procedure. The surgery itself moves your hairline to its new position. However, it can take some time to be able to fully appreciate the results and see your new aesthetic fully realized. As the swelling and any bruising go down, you will be able to see your final results start to shine through. For most patients, this will be about a couple of weeks after their procedure. But once you see your results, they will be with you for years. However, taking good care of your scalp and hairline will be essential to ensure that it stays healthy in the years to come.
