Reshape your face
Many people are self-conscious about having a high forehead either from genetics or from hair loss. Forehead reduction, or hairline lowering surgery, creates better facial balance and a more unified look for the overall face. If you feel like the upper third of your face is too exposed, you may be a good candidate for forehead reduction surgery. Dr. Albert at the Optimization Centre in Boca Raton is leading the way for you to feel more confident and secure in your look through forehead reduction. Dr. Albert is not only an excellent surgeon, he instructs other surgeons on how to perform cosmetic surgeries. Learn more about how Dr. Albert’s surgical techniques can improve your facial proportions and your confidence.
Restore Facial Balance
In forehead reduction surgery, the excess skin of the forehead is removed while you are given either local or general anesthesia. The incision is concealed in the hairline and is created so that the hair can grow through the scar, which is not normally visible. We can also perform a brow lift at the same time.
Forehead reduction can be achieved by lowering the hairline through hair transplants. However, forehead reduction surgery is a much faster and proven way to reduce the size of the forehead. In hair transplant procedures, it is not always guaranteed that the transplanted hair will provide enough hair line advancement.
Dr. Albert believes in creating a space where we listen to your desires and create a treatment plan to optimize your aesthetic outcome. Our difference is our team who listens to the patient and has a track record of delivering and exceeding patient expectations. Dr. Albert is an advanced surgeon in performing forehead reduction surgeries and will be there for you every step of the way.
Fast and Effective
Forehead reduction surgery can lower the hairline and reduce the size and height of the forehead, providing overall better symmetry of the face. It is a fast and effective way to lower the hair-bearing scalp from between 5.5 to 6.5 cm. While many people with high foreheads are good candidates for forehead reduction surgery, patients should be in good health and should have reasonable expectations for the procedure.
When you arrive at our office for your consultation, we will measure your forehead and take photographs. The measurements will allow us to create the optimal proportions and provide an attractive appearance, as well as provide more hair and a reduced forehead. We will then discuss your treatment options, and you can ask any questions you have about the procedure.
Remove Excess Skin
During the surgery, we will remove excess skin at the hairline and move the hairline lower on the face. We achieve this by separating the skin from the connective tissue underneath and pulling the hairline down to meet the incision, therefore closing the gap and reducing the size of the forehead.
Overall recovery time takes about two to three weeks. Many patients can wash their hair the next day after surgery and can return to their normal activities within a few days. You can expect some numbness in the affected area for a few months.
There may be some fine hair shedding for the first few months, but normal hair growth will return in about three months. There will be some discomfort, tightness, redness, possible swelling, and itchiness that can last two to three weeks. Our experienced team is always available. Please contact us with any questions you have or be sure to make a list for your multiple follow up appointments.
While technically surgical procedures are safe during pregnancy, it is always best to wait to have any general anesthesia until after you deliver your baby, just to be safe.
We will work with you to create a treatment plan to fit your needs and your budget.
