Hairline lowering surgery, or forehead reduction surgery, is effective in adjusting the hairline to a more aesthetically pleasing position. This procedure is popular among our clients from Frisco, Plano, Dallas, and beyond, aiming to achieve a more proportional-looking appearance.

What is Hairline Lowering Surgery?

Hairline lowering surgery involves the surgical advancement of the hairline to reduce the size of the forehead. The procedure can significantly improve the proportions of the face, offering a long-lasting, if not permanent, solution for those who are concerned about the height of their forehead. It’s a precise operation, providing natural-looking results that harmonize with the individual’s facial features.

Who Benefits from This Procedure?

Ideal candidates for this procedure include both men and women who feel their high or receding hairline impacts their overall facial symmetry and attractiveness. Suitable for those in good general health, with a stable hairline, and realistic expectations of the outcome, hairline lowering surgery can be a life-changing decision.

Individuals experiencing hair loss or those with very tight scalp skin may need to consider alternative treatments, such as hair transplant techniques, to achieve their desired results.

Procedure Insights

Hairline lowering surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about two hours to complete. Dr. Matthew Richardson makes an incision along the natural hairline, then carefully removes a predetermined amount of forehead skin before bringing the scalp forward to its new position. The incision is closed to minimize visible scarring, with most scars concealed within the hairline.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery time varies, with most patients returning to their routine activities within a week or two, following some initial swelling and discomfort. Dr. Richardson will provide detailed aftercare instructions, emphasizing the importance of keeping the incision clean and avoiding activities that could strain the scalp.

We encourage regular follow-up visits for a smooth healing process and to address any concerns promptly.

The Benefits of Hairline Lowering Surgery

The benefits of this procedure extend beyond aesthetic enhancement. Many patients report a significant boost in self-esteem and confidence, with the results being both immediate and permanent. Additionally, when performed by Dr. Richardson at Texas Facial Aesthetics, patients can expect results that look natural and complement their overall facial structure.
