Where will the scar be for a forehead reduction?
Has anyone had a forehead reduction or a hairline lowering procedure? Is your scar noticeable?
I've always been self-conscious about my forehead. I was so self-conscious that I did just about everything I could to hide it besides getting a hair transplant. When I was reading about how to make your forehead look smaller, I came across an article about forehead reduction. While the procedure seemed like a good solution for a large forehead, I was worried about the severity and location of any scarring. I didn't want to undergo a procedure gave me something else to be self-conscious about. Luckily, that wasn't the case. It isn't that there isn't a scar, it's just not noticeable. My surgeon hid the scar behind my hairline. When my hair grew back, the scar was not visible.
My plastic surgeon did a great job lowering my hairline, and the scar blends perfectly into my hairline. Hairline lowering is done by an incision where your skin and hair meets, so that's where you should expect your scar to be. The incision at first will have some swelling and bruising and be pretty prominent. Since it stretches across your forehead, it looks like you had a bad accident. After a while, the incision begins to heal. How well it heals depends on your surgeon's surgical technique and the quality of the aftercare. I followed the instructions I was given perfectly during my recovery period because I was terrified of a having the scar remain red and raised. Thanks to my paranoia, my scar is barely there.
I had forehead reduction surgery because I had an excessively high forehead and my scar is nearly hidden by my new hairline. My recovery time went smoothly. And I followed all of the doctor's instructions, such as sleeping with my head elevated. I also quit smoking because that can hinder the healing process. I highly recommend the surgery because I love the results that I have received, and the scar is easily concealed.
