Forehead reduction, AKA hairline lowering or advancement, reduces the size of an elongated forehead through the removal of a portion of the forehead skin in order to create a lower hairline. The distance between the eyebrows and the hairline is reduced. In general, the hairline can be lowered 5-6cm. The surgeon marks the postoperative hairline and then makes an incision. The skin located above the marked line is excised to remove excess forehead skin and the hairline is then advanced. The incision is closed using stitches or surgical clips. Hair will grow through these incisions and will cover any scars resulting from the surgery.
