Forehead Reduction Surgery
Facial aesthetics depend on balance. When one feature is too big or too small, it can affect the symmetry and attractiveness of the face. The forehead is a common area that can appear too large, often caused by a high or receding hairline. To reduce the height of the forehead, lowering the hairline is a minimally invasive option. At Pasadena Hair Transplant, we offer forehead reduction surgery using hair transplants at our medical center in Pasadena, CA.
Both men and women experience high hairlines. While hair loss or a receding hairline can cause a larger forehead, often this is a genetic trait. Some people are born with exceeding high hairlines, which can make their forehead appear disproportionately large. There are plastic surgery options to move the scalp lower, but it is much more invasive than a hair transplant surgery. Hairline lowering with follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a minimally invasive procedure for forehead reduction.
Hairline Lowering with FUE
Creating a lower hairline with FUE involves harvesting hair grafts from the back of the scalp and transplanting them along the forehead hairline. This procedure can add natural hair follicles that will create a lower hairline to reduce the size of the forehead. Once the hair grows in, it can be styled however desired to improve the overall appearance of the hair and face.
At Pasadena Hair Transplant, we use the NeoGraft® FUE hair transplant system. This is one of the most advanced options in hair transplantation – it has an extremely high success rate and is much less invasive than FUT or other transplant options. The surgery is painless – the scalp and skin are numbed with a local anesthetic. No incisions or stitches are needed, so there are no visible or linear scars. You can enjoy a more symmetrical facial appearance and improved front hairline with this minimally invasive surgery.
