I Want a Wider and Higher Forehead. Can That Be Done?

Doctor Answers 3

A higher, wider forehead can be done.

This involves a forehead lift but with the incision within the hair . This will elevate the hairline and produce a higher, wider forehead.

How to achieve a higher forehead

Without pictures or examining you, it is impossible to give you specific advice.  However, to achieve a higher and a wider forehead, you need a traditional open brow lift.  This would involve an incision behind your hairline with elevation of your forehead.  Good luck with your procedure.

A higher and wider forehead

This can be achieved essentially by excising along the hairline doing a forehead lift. This will require a lengthy scar. Some surgeons prefer to zig-zag the scar to conceal it as opposed to a straight line which can sometimes be more visible. The alternative is to use an endoscopic approach and attempt to pull the entire forehead backwards but this may not be as reliable.
