As you age, you may start to experience hair loss, which can deplete your confidence – affecting both your professional and personal life. Hairline advancement, also commonly referred to as forehead reduction surgery, can change the way that you look and feel. This procedure is performed by making an incision along the hairline and physically advancing the hair forward to reduce the size of the forehead. This can be combined with a brow lift simultaneously and is performed under IV sedation, with a recovery time of approximately 4-7 days.

What is Hairline Advancement?

Hairline advancement helps restore a more youthful appearance by adjusting the hairline’s position. This procedure is ideal for individuals who have a naturally high hairline or who have experienced hairline recession. It involves surgical techniques that require precision and care, ensuring the outcome is both natural and satisfying for the patient.

Hairline Advancement Candidates

Candidates for hairline advancement include those in generally good health and with realistic expectations of the procedure. It is crucial for patients to understand the scope and limitations of hairline advancement to ensure satisfaction with the results. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for hairline advancement is to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery.

The Hair Advancement Procedure

Before the procedure, the hair at the hairline may be trimmed to make the surgical area more accessible and visible to the surgeon. During the procedure, an incision is made along the hairline, and the hair is physically advanced to reduce the size of the forehead. After the adjustment, the incision is closed with care to minimize visible scarring.

Hair Advancement Recovery

After the procedure, you may experience discomfort, tightness, and swelling around the treated area. These symptoms are typically managed with prescribed medications and follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. Recovery typically lasts about 4-7 days, with patients often returning to normal activities shortly thereafter.
