Forehead reduction (commonly referred to as hairline lowering) doesn’t reduce the forehead, but rather moves down the location of where your hair grows in. Also known as scalp advancement, this procedure may be performed during facial feminization surgery.

Typical intro about how I've disliked my forehead for years even though I don't think it is terrible, I do think it is too "tall" for the rest of my face. Every time I take a photo that's the first thing I notice, it's a little too high and throws off the balance of my features. I will provide... READ MORE

I'm 30 and have been self conscious about my forehead since I realized it was huge. It has really taken a toll on my confidence. If I have to ever wear side swept bangs again I will scream. Loud. My brows are also starting to sag and I look mad, so I would like that taken care of at the same... READ MORE

I've always been very self-conscious of my forehead. I always wear bangs and I fear getting in the water in public because it will show my forehead. I'm sick of being confined to one hairstyle! I can't wait to not have bangs and not be embarrassed of my full face! So excited. The other reviews... READ MORE

I am 30 years old, I have 4 children and I hate taking pictures with my children because I feel like forehead sticks out so much. But I am also worried about having permanent hair loss. I am...

A big shout out to all who have posted about this procedure on this site. At 65, some would say the horse has left the barn and I should learn to live with my massive forehead. Which let's face it, I obviously have -- not happily, but I have. My Mom tried to convince me I needed a giant... READ MORE

I have been self-conscious about my hairline since the kids in my middle school would make fun of me for having a "bald spot" in my hairline. My goal is to get this procedure done by the end of this year. Dr. Kabaker and Dr. Sidel are who I'm looking to go with to have an advancement procedure... READ MORE

My whole life I've been insecure about my forehead. Like many of people here, I can't go swimming, do activities that include the wind and my hair styles are very limited. I'm tired of wearing hats to the gym and I hate it that I can't pull my hair up. I'm finally going to have surgery this... READ MORE

Hi there, so I'm planning to have the surgical hairline procedure done hopefully beginning of November with Dr. Jeffrey Epstein.

From as long as I can remember I have prayed for a smaller forehead. I've gone through many moments of wondering if I could "get over it" but have a ways gone back to just wishing it could be smaller. It's been 4 long years of communicating with doctors all over the world, figuring out who is... READ MORE

After a couple of months thinking about this I have finally decided to have my hairline lowered.

I had a lifelong complex about my enormous alien-like forehead... but didn't think anything could be done about it, so I suffered under a baseball cap most of my life. Then in my 40's, I started to get bags under my eyes. The forehead/eyebag combo was just not a good look.... so I started to... READ MORE

I wanted to write a review, as I have found this platform so helpful in assisting me to make a decision on my procedure. I choose to get this procedure done as I have always been self-conscious about my forehead. I have a genetically receding hairline, which resulted in the top part of my scalp... READ MORE

For as long as i can remember I have been self conscious about my forehead. Not only is my hairline too high, but I also have a M-shaped hairline. A very masculine hairline. I've worn braids and wigs etc to hide my hairline. I am ready to feel free. I'm slowly counting down the days til my... READ MORE

In a couple hours I will be catching a taxi to Dr. Kabaker’s office where he will perform my hairline lowering. Right now I am both ecstatic and nervous, but mostly ecstatic. I’m a bit nervous because this is an elective surgery, and who needs an elective surgery? And what about the scar? And... READ MORE
