What is forehead reduction surgery?

This is the realignment of the forehead shape to suit each individual's facial proportions. The surgeon will make an incision along the hairline and adjust the scalp to reduce wide forehead, high forehead, narrow forehead, and pinched forehead in a manner as to make the forehead proportion works with the other parts of the face. In the case of a forehead that is too wide and too high, thus rendering the hairline position higher than normal, the perceived look could be a bald person. and it could render the face asymmetrical. Reducing the size of the forehead in a way that doesn't require hair implantation is a dream procedure for many. Yet some other patients have a long forehead with an area that is more than 1/3 of the upper face such that the curve of the hair appears to have little hair or render an ugly M-shaped cleft. Such asymmetrism can be easily corrected with forehead reduction surgery.
