Are there different techniques for forehead reduction surgery?

I know with a lot of cosmetic procedures doctors will perform them differently because they feel certain techniques work better than others. Or they feel like their technique provides a less noticeable scar. How is a forehead reduction performed and are there different techniques?

There are differing approaches to forehead reduction surgery, mostly concerning the exact placement and length of the incision.  For most people a pretrichial incision designed so that the hair grows through it is the best approach as this will be maximally camoflaged.  This does depend in part on the shape of the hairline and thickness of the frontal hair so an in person consultation is the starting point for deciding the best approach for you.
