forehead reduction surgery with Gal Aharonov - Beverly Hills, CA

Hi!! I have decided to get my hairline lowered...

Hi!! I have decided to get my hairline lowered with Dr Gal Aharonov on 09/08/15 and I couldn't be more excited! I felt great after our initial consultation and I officially booked my surgery date today. With all those suffering w/ high foreheads like myself, I'll be updating about Readers about my results.

It's done!! My appointment time was at 11am so I had to be in the office getting all of my pre ops done and prepped for surgery. I was extremely nervous! The aenesthesiologist made me feel quite comfortable by having me take 3 Tylenol pills tomake me feel at ease then and after surgery during recovery! Very informative. She gave me all of the instructions for post care as well as relying the message to my ride to ensure that he knew if I were to have forgotten. After i had spoken to to Dr Aharonov and agreed on a length, (I wanted it a little lower but he explained that it would throw the proportions of my features off and make my face look wider) I decided to take his recommendation. Looking back at the pictures before surgery, I still wished I went a little lower but I might just be getting greedy since we all want the polar opposite of what he have! I remember walking to the surgery table, scooting up and then I was out! Next thing I know, I was demanding to go home! I can't control my thoughts when I was up apparently haha!
Recovery was easy. I was groggy and exhausted for most of the day. Kept my head elevated and bent upright at the waist area to keep blood from swelling up to my head! Iced the back of my neck as well as my eyes 30 min on/30 min off...still icing as I'm writing. Nurse instructed 48 hours of continual icing. I haven't noticed any bruising at all. Just a minor discomfort on the back of my head. Again very minor!
Can't wait til 12pm today. I will be going in to remove the bandages and reveal my new hairline! I'll keep updating! :)

Day 2

I was extremely nervous about getting the bandages removed because I initially wanted a lower line than what was agreed upon. But I'm so glad I took dr aharonov's recommendation because I love it!!! :) he had to shave off my baby hairs because he said that it made me look like I was balding. And I also had an uneven hairline that he was able to fix a tad bit since the entire scalp had to be advanced so he couldn't move one side more than the other. All in all I'm extremely pleased with the procedure.

My throat hurts from the breathing mask so it's difficult for me to eat. I gargled a lot of warm salt water before meals. I'm continuing to ice my eyes and my neck which the doctor deemed necessary so that the bruising won't travel down to my eyes! There are tiny bruises on the outer corner of my eyes but nothing too noticeable!

Dr Aharonov warned me that the hairline is going to look harsh before it heals because of the shaving of the baby hairs l. I'm optimistic that the results will be amazing!

9 days post op

Scar is looking like dark hair dye. The tightness of my scalp is either loosening up or I'm use to the tighter adjustment now! Every now and then I feel the nerves coming back in the top portion of my head. Healing is going well, can't wait for more healing to take place!
Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon

Definitely recommend this surgery with doctor aharonov and his staff simply because they do a fantastic job as a team. Faye is amazing and responds quickly to emails, phone calls, and all inquiries before and after surgery. Doctor aharonov is personable, and straight forward with realistic expectations, a precise eye, and a perfectionist attitude. He even came in on his day off just to remove my stitches. All members of the staff have given me a phone call every day since surgery to make sure that I am healing well and to make sure all of my questions are answered. Very professional environment, very personable, and accurate wait times! Well worth the big bucks! Dr Aharonov is pricier than most but you get what you pay for. :)
