View Full Version : Forehead reduction surgery results
On June 10th I had a hairline lowering surgery (also called forehead reduction). I recall a few people on this forum saying that this surgery should be avoided and that it's dangerous and bla bla bla... Because of those who said that I got very nervous and even thought about cancelling the surgery, but luckily I didn't, so whoever said that can kiss my ass and my new small forehead because I am super pleased with the results and the surgery is completly safe when done by the right surgeon!! Mine had 40 years of experience. However, this surgery is recommended for people who are not suffering from hair loss. I'm not. I just had a naturally big forehead. Here are some pictures of the results :) It's been only 9 days and the scar is barely visible.
Oh and I forgot to mention that my hairline was lowered by 2.7cm
I think no one has commented because right of the bat you state "This is not recommended for people losing hair" and "I'm not losing hair". Are there no forums for big ass foreheads?
That being said, it doesn't look bad because it hasn't been messed up aha. But honestly your forehead seemed fairly normal sized before the surgery.
Well it wasn't super big but I still thought it was too high. And I posted this on this forum because I saw a few posts here regarding hairline lowering surgeries and read a few comments of people who made it all dramatic and said it was super dangereous and I just wanted to post my results here to show that it's not dangerous
you know what, fair enough, I was a little b*tchy then wasn't I! To be fair it does look like a good job and I guess if I ever sort out this hair loss I would think about this. I don't know why this would be more dangerous than FUT. Does the back of your head or sides or anything feel any different?

So what happens when you do start to lose your hair (which is inevitable for most men)? Are you going to have a big visible scar?

What do I think? FANTASTIC!
Congrats to you Luka!!
JayM, the top of my head still feels a bit numb but that's normal, in a few months it won't feel numb anymore :)
Lalala, good question. That is actually the main reason why women are the best candidates for this surgery and not men. But the scar is not big at all and after one year it becomes almost invisible. And there is always the option of hair transplants if one day my hairline recedes (which hopefully would happen when I'm in my 40s/50s and not now).

Wow... looks amazing man!! that being said, why do you assume the scar will be not visible. I know you are happy and I am not trying to shit on your parade, but I am just curious. Even the best FUT scars are still very visible with a shaved head. I am curious, because, one day, I will probably have to shave my head and I had a really good scar closure, but it's still very visible.
Jamesst11, when I asked the surgeon about what the scar would look like, he showed me a few pictures. One of them was a guy who had this surgery and eventually decided to get a mohawk and shave the sides, so a part of the scar was exposed but it was extremely small. And another picture there was a woman who had the surgery and she had cancer later in her life and she had chemo so she was completly bald and once again, the scar was barely visible. If my scar ever becomes exposed and I find it too big, I could always cover it with a bit of makeup, or get hair transplanted on it
