Forehead Reduction

A forehead reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is commonly performed to alter the height of the forehead or lower the hairline. There is a variety of factors that can lead to a larger forehead, these including hair loss, genetics, injuries, and previous surgeries. By reducing the height of your forehead, we can restore you back to a proportional and elegant look.

About Forehead Reduction

At Signature Clinics, we perform forehead reduction under local anaesthesia. The procedure is very safe as long as performed by highly trained plastic surgeons. After the procedure, the patients are able to go back home immediately.

Forehead reduction is generally used to balance the proportions of one’s overall facial structure. You might be a good candidate for forehead reduction surgery if you have:

  • Large forehead which you wish to shorten
  • Recently had a brow lift procedure
  • Wish to bring your hairline forward/lower
  • Low or heavy eyebrows
  • Want to change the proportions of your face


It is important to remember that these criteria do not automatically make someone suitable for the treatment. In order to have good results, it is critical to have good scalp laxity. Unfortunately, having a family history of pattern balding may exclude you from the procedure.

How does it work?

After numbing the forehead, an incision is made at the hairline and on the forehead. The length between these two incisions is determined prior to the surgery in your consultation. The skin excess is removed, and the two ends are stitched together which leads to the hairline moving forward and the forehead becoming smaller. The scar is mostly hidden at the hairline which makes it less visible upon hair regrowth.
