The balance of facial features is vital for an attractive appearance. When the forehead seems too large, it can detract from the other features of the face. If you are self-conscious due to a larger forehead from a receded hairline, genetics or other factors, facial plastic surgery could be a solution. LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers forehead reduction surgery to rebalance the facial features for a more attractive appearance.

Both young men and women can have a larger forehead due to a hairline that is located higher on the scalp. In most cases, this is a genetic trait, although it can occur with hair loss. The higher hairline can make the hair appear thinner and the forehead longer, impacting the balance and harmony of the face. Those with larger foreheads may feel self-conscious of their appearance, and use bangs, hats and other accessories to hide this feature. Forehead reduction surgery, also called hairline lowering, can reduce the exposed forehead for a more balanced appearance.

Hairline Lowering for Facial Balance

Forehead reduction, or hairline lowering surgery, involves removing skin from the forehead and shifting the hairline forward. The incision is made behind the hairline and is invisible once the skin heals. This subtle shifting of the hairline up an inch or two can make a dramatic improvement in the balance of the face. Some patients can benefit from combining a brow lift with hairline lowering if the forehead is excessively large or the brows have shifted lower.

If you have a larger or longer forehead and want to learn more about cosmetic options for reduction, contact us at LM Medical NYC today to schedule your private consultation. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, offers forehead reduction surgery for facial balance at our clinic in Manhattan.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
