Results Focused To Your Needs
Many plastic surgeons think they are the star of the office, but Dr. Brobst believes that his patients are the center of his practice. With you in mind, he creates a warm and inviting experience that allows you the opportunity to express yourself and find yourself in the process. In addition, Dr. Brobst is results focused, working to provide you with the most beneficial outcome to fit your needs, timeline, and budget. When it comes to procedures like Forehead Reduction, his dedication to your satisfaction and well-being shines through every step of the journey.
Before your Forehead Reduction, Dr. Brobst and the team at Brobst Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics will provide you with specific instructions on preparing for the surgery. This may include avoiding certain medications and supplements, stopping alcohol consumption and smoking, and arranging for someone to drive and care for you after the procedure.
A limited forehead reduction can be performed under local anesthesia, but the complete correction is typically performed under general anesthesia. While you are asleep, the procedure can be performed efficiently and free of discomfort. Dr. Brobst will discuss the anesthesia options further during your consultation and provide all necessary details.
The specific technique used for forehead reduction will depend on the individual's goals and Dr. Brobst's preferences. This typically involves traditional instruments as well as specialized endoscopic equipment, depending on the additional procedures being performed. Dr. Brobst will make follicle-sparing incisions in the scalp and does not require any cutting or shaving of hair. Once exposed, he can carefully reposition the forehead tissue and muscles to create the desired results without necessarily elevating the brow. Alternatively, a brow lift and forehead reduction can be performed simultaneously when indicated.
Keep Your Head Up
The results of a forehead reduction are immediately appreciated. However, the final position may change slightly during the first three months. Because a specialized incision technique and design are utilized to maximize scar camouflage, hair will continue to grow through the scars during the recovery period. This may cause ongoing redness and occasional ingrown hairs during the first 3-6 months, but rarely any longer.
We watch these incisions closely and actively manage any scar until it is fully healed to give you the best possible results. Both swelling and bruising resolve fully in the first couple of weeks. Most people can return to work and activities within a few weeks of the procedure but need to hold off on intense exercise until cleared by Dr. Brobst. It is essential to follow the plastic surgeon's instructions for post-operative care and to avoid any actions that could cause unnecessary stress to the surgical site.
It is also important to note that the final results of a forehead reduction may take time to be apparent. This is because the advanced scalp will take some time to settle into its new position, and the full effects of the procedure may only be visible several months after the surgery. However, most people are delighted with the results of a forehead reduction, and the improved appearance of forehead size and position can significantly impact their overall appearance and self-confidence.
There are plenty of options to help you optimize the appearance of your forehead. Dr. Brobst and his excellent staff can help you extend your youthful radiance that comes after an enhancing procedure such as a forehead reduction through the use of skincare and non-surgical treatments.
From a "Five" Head to a Forehead
This procedure is typically recommended for people with a prominent forehead or a naturally high hairline who want to improve their facial balance. A good candidate for a forehead reduction is someone who is in good overall health, has no medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process, and has realistic expectations about the procedure's results.
It is essential to consult with Dr. Brobst, who can evaluate your case and determine if a forehead reduction is best for you. The specific benefits of forehead reduction will vary depending on the individual's aesthetic goals and the particular technique used by Dr Brobst. Therefore, it is best to consult with Dr. Brobst to discuss the potential benefits and risks of the procedure and determine if it is right for you.

As with any surgical procedure, a forehead reduction will leave scars. However, the scars from a forehead reduction are typically well-hidden. A combination of incisions at and behind the hairline are utilized. Dr. Brobst will take care to place the incisions strategically to minimize the scars' visibility and maximize hair camouflage.
The average cost of forehead reduction is $10,0000 but can range from $5,000 to $15,000.
