Lowering the hair line
A reverse forehead lift can be done - to bring the hairline down and reduce the forehead skin.
This will leave a scar at the hairline - and requires short bangs to conceal for at least a year.
Or you can have hair transplants - by someone who can create the look you want.
- Being in LA, you are awash with qualifiied physicians doing good cosmetic surgery.
- Also many hucksters - so get at least 3 opinions with doctors with plastic, facial plastic or dermatology Board Certification -
- Choose the one who gives you realistic expectations - anyone who promises a result and no complications is misleading you.
- If you can't afford the surgery - save your money
- A bad result will be worse than the high forehead you have now.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
Forehead reduction vs. Hair transplant
Your options for a smaller forehead are hair transplant or forehead reduction. The latter requires a large incision at the hairline. We would need to see you in person for a true recommendation.
The cost will vary from $5,500 to 7,000 with our group.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,

While a forehead lowering procedure exists, it leaves a scar at the hairline, which may be more visible than you like.
Alternatively, you could have hair transplantation to the area just ahead of your current hairline. These may not always look entirely natural, either.
