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 and his staff have been so beyond amazing to work with! As someone who gets pretty squeamish around needles, they have made me feel so relaxed and at ease through it all. Dr Pearce and Amy were so incredible and Informative during my breast augmentation consultation. They answered my 100 questions and helped put my mind at ease. Getting surgery is one of my biggest fears And I know I’m choosing the right spot! Last of all, the front desk staff is sooo welcoming and sweet, even if I’m running a little bit late they have been so understanding! I’ll definitely be a life long patient!

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.

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!
