Forehead Reduction Surgery

Loss of hair on the hairline above the forehead is a common issue in women as well as some men. This can make the forehead appear longer or larger, changing the overall look of the face. With forehead reduction surgery, our cosmetic surgeon at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery can move the hairline forward or lower, creating a more youthful appearance for the patient.

With forehead reduction surgery, a hair transplant is performed to add up to two inches to the hairline above the forehead. This is beneficial for women that have had thinning hair combined with a receding hairline that makes their forehead appear larger. Excellent candidates for this procedure have not had significant hair loss or receding hair in the last year but a sustained loss that has not increased. The results can produce a hairline that looks natural while still appropriate for the age of the patient.

Hairline Lowering

Hairline receding can occur for many reasons including genetics, aging, hairstyles that pull and health issues. Hairline lowering is most commonly used in women that want a one to two inch lowering of their hairline, but it can also be used for some men. For men, it is important that the patient does not have male pattern baldness and has stabilized in their hair loss in the last year.

The typical hairline lowering surgery can only add two inches or less to the hairline, but it is possible to have more than two inches if necessary. In this case, additional procedures must be performed to increase the scalp tissue, stretching it forward. Hairline lowering can also be combined with other cosmetic surgeries like an eyelid or brow lift, improving the youthful appearance of both the face and forehead.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
