Forehead Reduction Surgery
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.
