This involves a series of steps to shape the forehead to match female aesthetics.
Through a hairline incision, the brow is approached. In most patients, excess bone over the brow (overlying the frontal sinus) is cut away, and then repositioned to a less prominent position. Additional burring of the brow and orbits is performed, creating a more open appearance of the eyes. The eyebrows are elevated to create a more feminine arch.
In the appropriate patients, scalp advancement shortens the forehead and rounds out the hairline. Patients with an excessively recessed hairline or prior operations may not be ideal candidates, and will have to consider other options such as hair transplantation.
