Forehead Reduction Surgery In Thailand

Forehead reduction surgery, also known as hairline lowering surgery, is a procedure that can be performed on both men and women to decrease the size of a disproportionately high hairline or broad forehead. The forehead reduction technique can be conducted concurrently with a Forehead Lift (Browplasty) or as a standalone procedure.
During this treatment, a surgical cut is created at the hairline. By excising a hairless section of the scalp, the hairline can be effectively lowered. The hair follicles adjacent to the incision will eventually penetrate it and conceal the scar.
Operational duration:
The process typically requires approximately 2 hours to complete.
Postoperative care:
Following the forehead reduction treatment, there may be noticeable bruising and swelling. Ice compresses might be utilized to manage the inflammation. During the night, a loose bandage will be applied to your forehead to further reduce swelling. A drain can be utilized to facilitate the removal of accumulated fluids in the tissues. The individual may also have paresthesia and mild discomfort, both of which will ultimately subside.

Diminish and can be managed with medicines. You can commence showering and shampooing your hair inside a span of two days, or promptly after the bandage is taken off.
Recovery duration: The time it takes for individuals to recover varies. Several patients achieve sufficient recovery to resume work within a week. Your stitches will be removed after a week. The majority of patients resume their professional activities after a period of 7-10 days following their hairline lowering procedure, while a subset of individuals may return to work even earlier. The majority of the observable indications of surgery should fully diminish within around three weeks. Hair loss in the frontal scalp area is possible between 2-4 weeks following the surgical procedure. Regrowth of the hair will occur within a few months.
According to our surgeon’s recommendation, patients should administer 5% Minoxidil to the frontal area of the scalp, commencing 2-6 weeks prior to the surgery and continuing for a duration of 3 months following the procedure.

Potential hazards and complexities:
Forehead reduction carries potential complications such as the collection of fluid, scarring, hair loss at the incision site, and the possibility of infection. Typically, hair loss should regrow within a few months. Antibiotics are commonly administered to prevent infections. The emergence of fresh hair growth typically conceals unattractive scars. Nevertheless, in certain instances, the client may choose to have an extra hair graft procedure to conceal the scars.
Application of anesthesia:
The surgery typically employs general anesthesia, requiring hospital hospitalization.
The technique for forehead reduction surgery can be conducted either in the cosmetic surgeon’s office-based facility, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. This operation is often performed on an outpatient basis.
Preoperative Preparations
During the consultation, a comprehensive evaluation will be conducted, which includes reviewing the patient’s medical history (including allergies, significant medical conditions, and all drugs, both prescribed and non-prescribed), performing a physical examination, and conducting laboratory testing.

 Blood and urine samples will be obtained for standard preoperative laboratory examinations. X-rays can be used to assess an individual’s skeletal composition.

  • It is imperative to abstain from smoking for around 3-4 weeks before undergoing surgery, as nicotine hinders blood flow and significantly impairs the healing process.
     It is probable that you may be instructed to abstain from consuming alcohol starting one week prior to the surgery and continuing throughout your recuperation period.
  • Prior to surgery, it is advisable to refrain from taking any medications, including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and supplements, for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. This precaution is necessary to avoid any potential medical complications.
    Refrain from consuming aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements, as they have the potential to heighten the risk of bleeding.
