Hairline/Forehead Reduction

A high forehead or hairline can make some people unsatisfied or self-conscious about their appearance. Luckily, it can be corrected with a hairline or forehead reduction procedure. 

Hairline lowering, also known as forehead reduction, can create a more balanced and harmonious look for your entire face. Dr. Kornstein applies his extensive expertise to refine the hairline in a way that complements the individual features of each patient, ensuring results that are both aesthetically pleasing and appear natural.

This surgery is ideal for anyone, man or woman, who desires a lower hairline position. Dr. Kornstein performs this surgery with precision, gently shifting the natural hairline to the preferred placement. The resulting scar is thin and virtually invisible on the front of the scalp. Within weeks, the scar typically fades significantly. Over time, hair growth further conceals the scar, making it practically undetectable.

Some patients experience a reduction in future hair loss after hairline lowering or forehead reduction surgery. Compared to hair transplantation, which often requires multiple sessions and uses hair follicles from the back of the scalp, this procedure can achieve a fuller hairline for a potentially lower cost.

Is Hairline Lowering or Forehead Reduction Right For You?

For individuals in Greenwich seeking to address concerns such as high foreheads, receding hairlines, or age-related hair loss, hairline lowering can be a safe and effective solution. Hairline lowering or forehead reduction benefits those looking to enhance their facial symmetry and overall appearance.

Your Hairline Lowering Procedure

The hairline lowering procedure begins by administering local anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the process. Once the anesthesia takes effect, incisions are made along the natural hairline. The placement of these incisions is carefully measured to remove a precise amount of forehead skin, thereby lowering the hairline to a more desirable position.

Sutures are then carefully applied in a way that not only secures the new hairline but also promotes healing with the least visible scarring. The incisions are typically closed with fine, dissolvable sutures that are placed beneath the skin surface, minimizing any visible marks.

As the hair grows through and around the incision sites, it effectively hides any signs of the procedure, resulting in a natural-looking hairline. This approach ensures that the results are discreet, seamless, and enhance your natural facial features.
