Forehead Reduction Surgery
A receding hairline can make your forehead seem exceptionally large and contribute to a more aged look. Men and women alike may wish to correct this condition for better facial symmetry and overall appearance. Dr. Erez Dayan at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV, is a highly credentialed cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers forehead reduction surgery to create a better aesthetic appeal.
Instead of wearing an array of hats or growing out bangs, forehead reduction surgery can lower the hairline approximately 1-2 inches to shrink the appearance of the forehead. This procedure can also be combined with hair restoration for large foreheads. Dr. Dayan will perform an examination and medical evaluation as part of your confidential consultation at his Reno/Tahoe office. He will then offer his recommendations for forehead reduction surgery and explain the options.
Hairline Lowering in Reno/Tahoe, NV
Men and women’s foreheads typically have different characteristics, which Dr. Dayan will address in each patient’s tailored surgical plans. Hairline lowering surgery is generally a same day procedure under general anesthesia. Dr. Dayan will use precise incisions in the hairline to move the brow skin and hairline down. This aids with hair regrowth in the scars to help hide the incisions and conceal any evidence of surgery.
A normal hairline lowering surgical procedure lasts 2-3 hours. Some laxity or stretchiness is required in the forehead skin and scalp for this procedure to have the desired results. Dr. Dayan uses the most advanced surgical techniques to manipulate the skin and scalp to achieve the aesthetic appearance you desire.
Recovery typically takes about 2-3 weeks, with mild swelling and discomfort for the first few days. Dr. Dayan provides every patient with complete aftercare instructions and prescription medications to aid with comfort and healing. You will also follow up with Dr. Dayan to ensure your recovery is proceeding according to plan.
