Overview

Also called forehead reduction surgery, it’s a procedure that lowers the hairline and reduces the height of the forehead, usually with a surgical technique (an incision) but sometimes with a hair transplant in the hairline area. It can be helpful for people with naturally large foreheads who are unsatisfied with their forehead size and those suffering from a receding hairline due to hair loss. Forehead reduction may also be an effective procedure for transgender patients willing to change some facial features in order to have more feminine faces.
