Forehead Reduction in Fayetteville, NC

If you’re struggling with the appearance of a long or prominent forehead, you may want to consider forehead reduction surgery at Cape Fear Aesthetics. Also known as hairline lowering surgery, this simple procedure can enhance the facial proportions to create a more balanced appearance. We offer forehead reduction surgery to men and women living in Fayetteville, Sanford and Cary, NC.

What is Forehead Reduction?

Forehead reduction is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to lower the hairline and reduce the prominence of the forehead in proportion to the rest of the face. It is also known as hairline lowering surgery. The procedure is done by making an incision along the hairline and removing a section of skin. The remaining skin is then pulled down to cover the gap and sutured into place, effectively lowering the hairline on the forehead. The procedure can be done alone or in combination with other facial surgeries.

What are the Benefits of Forehead Reduction?

Forehead reduction can provide several benefits, including:

  • Lowering a high hairline and reducing the size of a large forehead
  • Improving the overall balance and proportion of the face
  • Boosting self-confidence and self-esteem

What is the Forehead Reduction Treatment Like?

The forehead reduction treatment typically takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete, depending on the extent of the procedure. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation. To begin treatment, Dr. Dickerson will make an incision along the hairline. From this incision, he’ll remove a strip of skin on the forehead. Then, the hairline will be brought down and reattached to the forehead using sutures. You’ll be able to go home after the procedure.

What is the Recovery Process Like After Forehead Reduction?

The recovery process after forehead reduction typically takes about 2 weeks. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. Patients should also avoid strenuous activities or exercises for at least 2 weeks after the procedure, although many return to work and other light activities within a few days of treatment. The sutures are usually removed after a week. Any scarring is typically well-hidden in the hairline.

What Results Can I Expect from Forehead Reduction?

After swelling subsides and the healing process is complete, patients can expect to see a lower hairline and a smaller forehead. While results will be visible immediately, final results will be visible after approximately one month, once the healing process is fully complete. The results from forehead reduction are permanent, although age-related hair loss can impact your results.
