There are many reasons why people turn to Cosmetic Surgery. Most people want to change a physical attribute either on their face or their body to make themself feel more attractive, more confident or just more satisfied.
Hairline Lowering Surgery is also known as Forehead Reduction Surgery in Toronto and can be a very effective procedure for both men and women. It’s also a commonly sought out for Facial Feminization Surgery for men transitioning to female.
Hairline Lowering Surgery for Women
While many hairstyles can compensate for a high forehead in women, that may not be enough for some. A high hairline is typically deemed a masculine trait and therefore can make a woman feel less feminine and unattractive. 20% of women may have a high forehead, as the average height of a forehead is typically 10-12 cm’s above the brow line. Hairline Lowering Surgery (Forehead Reduction Surgery) can reduce the height of the forehead by 2-6 centimetres. Women who choose to undergo surgery for their large forehead typically have increased confidence and self-assurance following their surgery as they have corrected an issue that has likely plagued them since childhood.
Hairline Lowering Surgery for Men
Men who are candidates for hairline lowering surgery in Toronto (Forehead Reduction Surgery) typically have a high hairline that exceeds 12-16 centimetres above the brow line. Men who are experiencing hair loss, are not best suited for this procedure. However, men who have already undergone hair grafting and are looking to lower their hairline, are qualified for Hairline Lowering Surgery. Men, who choose to have Hairline Lowering Surgery first, can then seek hair grafting or a hair transplant once they have healed, approximately 8 months following surgery. In combining these procedures, men can achieve great results that can restore their confidence and self-esteem.
Hairline Lowering Surgery for Facial Feminization
Facial Feminization Surgery in Toronto is also known as FFS or Transgender Surgery, is a combination of surgeries used to feminize the male face.
Often, men who are transitioning to female, opt for Facial Feminization as their first step so that their physical appearance better aligns with their identity. Transitioning patients also find they are better recognized and identified by others as a female when their physical attributes look more female.
Facial Feminization Surgery is usually comprised of at least 2 or more procedures to feminize the face. Facial Feminization Surgery in Toronto can include rhinoplasty (nose job), laryngeal shave (reduction of Adam’s apple), brow reduction, brow lift, chin implant, neck liposuction, cheek implants, lip lift, lip reduction, jaw line reduction, jaw angling and hairline lowering, also known as forehead reduction.

Following your Hairline Lowering Surgery
Most patients require 7-14 days at home following their Hairline Lowering Surgery. Sutures and staples are used and will be removed as early as 7 days, and can take up to 14 days for all to be discarded. Dr. Philip Solomon recommends that all his patients sleep with their head elevated for 3 days following Hairline Lowering Surgery to help reduce swelling.
Bathing is recommended until day 4, at which time you can then resume showering and washing your hair using a gently shampoo and conditioner. A hairdryer and brush cannot be used until all staples and sutures have been removed 2 weeks following surgery. Make-up can be used 2-3 weeks post-operatively and hair colour can be used 2 months following Hairline Lowering surgery. It’s also best to hold off on travel until all sutures and staples have been removed.
