Forehead reduction surgery (frequently referred to as brow bone reduction or brow bone contouring surgery) is performed on men with an extremely prominent brow bone or as part of facial feminization surgery. This procedure surgically reduces the height and protrusion of the forehead. Dr. Harrison Lee performs forehead reduction surgery at both his Beverly Hills (Los Angeles) and Manhattan (NYC) plastic surgery practices.
For male brow bone reduction surgery patients this procedure will reduce an over-masculine or “Neanderthal appearance” and restore a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The surgery will result in a brow bone that is in proportion with the other facial feature. Additionally, where significant hairline recession or male pattern hair loss has occurred, a forehead reduction is often elected as an alternative to hair transplant surgery, which requires multiple sessions over a longer period of time before achieving comparable results.
For facial feminization surgery patients, the forehead/ brow ridge bone contouring procedure will alter the masculine appearance around the forehead and upper eye areas and result in feminizing the features. Forehead contouring & reduction surgery for FFS patients involves shaping the forehead bones and orbital bones to remove the masculine ridge, open up the appearance of the eyes, and create a more naturally feminine and softer appearance.
