Forhead Lift

A forehead that is positioned high or a large forehead can affect your overall facial appearance. Your other facial features become unflattering and unattractive. As a matter of fact, many people become self-conscious and feel insecure because of this. While several factors such as genetics, previous surgeries or hair loss might have caused the forehead to look high or positioned much high, it can be treated with the forehead reduction surgery. The cosmetic surgery procedure balances the features and improves the overall look.

Procedure – How is it done?

  • It takes around two to three hours to perform Forehead Reduction surgery. The duration might vary depending on any other cosmetic procedure being performed.
  • The forehead lift surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia, administered intravenously or orally.
  • The surgeon creates the postoperative hairline and makes an incision. This incision might follow a zig-zag pattern to resemble like a hairline.
  • The skin above the marked line is removed for eliminating the high or excess forehead and the hairline is advanced.
  • The surgeon sutures the wound using surgical clips or two layers of stitches to make sure proper healing with minimal scarring. The hair would grow over the period through these incisions making the scar undetectable.

The technique for skin removal can lower the hairline by up to 5cm. in cases where a patient wants hairline to be lowered more than 6 cm then a more intricate and invasive surgery is performed. A temporary tissue expander is used under the scalp.

A tissue expander is a device similar to a balloon, filled with saline water, that helps in stretching the skin and growing new cells before the forehead reduction surgery. Four to eight weeks after the surgery, the scalp skin increases because of the skin stretching and growth. The surgeon removes the expander. In some cases, the cosmetic surgeon recommends a small amount of hair grafting to be done at a later stage for achieving optimized results and thickening the hairline.


Once the procedure is done, the incisions would be covered with a dressing. The surgeon might use either dissolvable stitches or the ones that would be removed within a week or ten days after the surgery. Patients have to take a break of ten to fifteen days for forehead reduction surgery. However, they can also return to work within three to five days of the procedure. You can expect some bruising and swelling that might extend downwards to give patients ‘black eyes’. Ice compresses can help in easing swelling and discomfort. Keep the neck and head elevated. Make sure that you adhere to the instructions given by the surgeon for quick recovery.

Long term outlook

  • Avoid any kind of strenuous and tedious activities and exercises like lifting heavy objects, going to the gym, swimming, or running for at least three weeks, or until the doctor advises you that you are fit to return to such activities.
  • You might notice some hair loss at the front of the scalp three to four weeks after the procedure. After a resting period of many months, your hair would grow again.
  • Swelling might remain for many weeks or months after the procedure. Healing takes place at a different pace for each patient, however, be assured that all swelling would subside.
