What Is Forehead Reduction Surgery?

Book your consultation today to take the first step in achieving a balanced appearance.

How is Forehead Reduction Surgery Performed?

Forehead reduction surgery is performed in an accredited surgical suite, utilizing general anesthesia to ensure comfort. The procedure starts with an incision just below the hairline, removing a small portion of the skin to pull the scalp forward. Patients whose scalp has limited flexibility may experience less of a reduction than those with more mobile scalps. As the incision heals, it will gradually become less noticeable over time.

Who is a Good Candidate for Forehead Reduction Surgery?

Patients with a high-riding hairline and no previous hair loss are the best candidates for this procedure. Men with a history of hair loss or actively losing hair need to stabilize their hair loss through medical management before considering scalp advancement surgery. Hair transplantation may sometimes be necessary even after the hairline-lowering procedure to ensure the best results. This scalp advancement surgery can also decrease the number of grafts a patient may need for a hair transplant in the future. Women can undergo this procedure at any time, benefiting from the protective effects of estrogen on their hair.

Dr. Pearce was on call at Round Rock Medical Center at a very difficult moment for my family. My son experienced a very bad motorcycle accident on Sept. 12, 2022 and Dr. Pearce operated on him to repair the cosmetic results of severe head trauma. He has operated on my son 3 times, the last one being 2 days ago. He did miraculous work in restoring my son’s head shape and eye socket to normal. He worked for 6.5 hours in surgery this time to fix some abnormalities and my son looks great. We are so grateful to Dr. Pearce!

After a major weight loss and a few uncomfortable consultations, I decided to look outside the San Antonio area to have a tummy tuck and an arm lift. Dr Pearce was my first consultant after expanding my search. When I walked in his office, I was greeted with the biggest smiles. After meeting Dr Pearce, I knew I found my surgeon!! I’m a year post op and feel amazing! Dr Pearce is a perfectionist!! I’ve recommended him to a couple people!
