Forehead Reduction Surgery at Charles Medical Group

Forehead reduction surgery, also known as hairline lowering surgery, can be a transformative option for individuals who feel self-conscious about an overly large forehead. At Charles Medical Group, Dr. Glenn M. Charles applies his extensive expertise in hair restoration to achieve balanced and natural-looking facial proportions through this specialized procedure.

Many people choose forehead reduction surgery for aesthetic reasons, seeking a more harmonious balance between their facial features. An excessively high hairline or large forehead can disrupt the perceived symmetry of the face, leading to a lack of confidence and potential psychological distress. By carefully lowering the hairline, Dr. Charles can help patients attain a more desirable appearance that boosts self-esteem and aligns with their ideal self-image.

The process of forehead reduction surgery at Charles Medical Group involves a meticulous surgical approach. The procedure typically begins with a careful incision along the hairline. Dr. Charles then skillfully removes a predetermined amount of forehead skin to bring the hairline forward. The scalp is brought down to the new position, and the incision is closed with precision, ensuring that any potential scarring is minimized and hidden within the hairline.

Recovery time varies from patient to patient, but most can expect to resume normal activities within a week or two, with full recovery taking a few months. During the healing phase, patients may experience some swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. Dr. Charles and his team provide comprehensive post-operative care instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.

Dr. Charles’ expertise in hair restoration is particularly beneficial when combining forehead reduction with hair transplant techniques like FUE (Follicular Unit Excision) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). For patients who may also be experiencing hair thinning or loss, these additional procedures can further refine the hairline and enhance the overall result. By integrating hair transplants with forehead reduction, Dr. Charles can create a denser, more natural hairline that complements the new forehead proportion.
