Some people's forehead areas may be wider than normal due to genetic reasons or hair loss. The forehead structure is very important for women as well as men. One of the reasons for this situation, which is not proportional to the face, is the beginning of the hair follicles from behind or hair loss in the forehead area. Baldness, which is seen in the advanced stages of hair loss, causes width in the forehead area. A person's hair color, model, length determines his style and stance. Hairstyles with bangs are the easiest solution to hide the width of the forehead. However, our patients who have baldness in the forehead area cannot hide the forehead area with their hairstyle. The desired narrowness cannot be achieved by changing the hairstyle and this solution is never enough. People who experience hair loss experience a lack of self-confidence in their daily and social lives because of their hair. Patients who are disturbed by this situation can return to more normal sizes in the forehead area with forehead reduction operation. Wide forehead narrowing operation is the process of giving the desired narrowness to the forehead by changing the location of the hairline in the forehead area. With this operation, which is performed for a more petite appearance of the facial area, people get a more pleasant facial structure. People who are uncomfortable with a wide forehead, the hairline is pulled forward by 1 – 1.5 cm with regional hair transplantation. In today's conditions, instead of producing temporary solutions with hairstyles, aesthetic surgery can produce permanent solutions and help balance the facial proportions.

Why Does The Forehead Area Enlarge?

The forehead region can be narrow, wide, curved or flat according to the bone structure of the facial structure. However, for some people, the forehead area may be wider. One of the most important reasons for the enlargement of the forehead area is hair loss and baldness. Hair loss problems can be genetic as well as due to stress and external factors. Hair loss brings with it the problem of trust in patients. With advancing age, the density of hair loss increases. In such cases, a wide forehead can be narrowed by hair transplantation and the person can be more adaptable to social life. Since the face area is the first place in our body to look at, a person's self-confidence will be higher with an expression where the hairline is proportional to the face.

Formation Of New Hair After Wide Forehead Reduction Operation

For three days after hair transplantation and wide forehead narrowing operation, the forehead area should not be touched with water and should not be washed. At the end of the third day, the first washing process is carried out in the clinic where hair transplantation is performed. Red spots and tiny scars with the appearance of acne can be seen in the forehead area where hair transplantation is performed. This situation, which patients should not worry about, is extremely normal. It is necessary to protect the hair transplanted forehead area from factors such as intense heat, extreme cold, sun and wind. Thus, infection is prevented. For this purpose, we recommend our patients to use hats. With the protection of the tiny wounds in the area where hair transplantation is performed, it passes in about 7-8 days. After hair transplantation to make the forehead area look narrower, the transplanted hair weakens over time and falls out. It may take 3-4 months for healthy hair to grow from the roots instead of the shed hair. It is possible to use the hair in the forehead area, which reaches the same length as other hair at the end of one year, for life. A completely natural look is to appear with the proportion of the front hairline.

What Does a Forehead Reduction Procedure Involve?

Forehead reduction surgery, otherwise referred to as hairline lowering or foreheadplasty, is an aesthetic surgical intervention meticulously devised to lower the hairline and reduce the expanse of the forehead. The usual course of action generally involves making an incision adjacent to the hairline, thereby enabling the surgeon to meticulously extract a segment of the skin covering the frontal region. Afterwards, the tissue beneath the skin is meticulously repositioned to create a more below situated pilus demarcation, while the cut is carefully closed through the cautious application of sutures.

Does Forehead Reduction Surgery Have Any Side-Effects?

Similar to any surgical intervention, the undertaking of forehead reduction surgery involves inherent dangers and plausible consequences that necessitate the conscientious consideration of individuals prior to reaching a definitive resolution. Frequent complications include brief swelling and wounds in close proximity of the frontal region and ocular area, which commonly diminish within a span of several weeks. Pain and unease are likewise prevalent in the nascent phases of recovery, yet these can be effectively regulated with medically prescribed substances.

Although exceedingly uncommon, forehead reduction surgery may entail potential complications. These potential complications include infection, alterations in skin sensation, and the formation of scars. The manifestation of the scar is contingent upon various factors, including the surgical methodology employed and the distinctive tendencies of individual recuperative processes.
