The long and wide forehead makes face look large and long so that the face might be looking old.
In this case, the hairline is moved downward through forehead reduction so that the
height of the forehead is shortened for an ideal ratio.

The most ideal forehead length is about 1/3 of the face: 0.9~1 between the hairline and forehead 1,
between the eyebrow and nose tip, and 0.8~0.9 between the nose tip and chin tip.

In the forehead reduction that uses "hair follicle preservation procedure," an incision is made diagonally by considering the direction that hair grows when the hairline area is cut.
Therefore, there is little damage to hair roots and hair follicles, and hair grows over the incision area after surgery so that the scar does not become visible well.

Forehead reduction is a procedure that pulls the scalp downward so that the elasticity of the scalp skin determines the reduction range.
By having the reducible scalp range and customized hairline design, the natural results can be obtained.
If it is reduced too much, adverse effects such as unnatural skin and lengthened skin can occur!
This is the reason that 1:1 customized and systematic forehead reduction is planned at Human Plastic Surgery.
For forehead reduction, reducing the length of forehead is not the only important thing to do.
By designing hairline that fits individual facial contour, making ideal ratio and shape is important.
If just the forehead length is shortened when hairline correction is necessary for asymmetry forehead, angled forehead, etc.,
it can rather bring stuffy and unnatural results so that the length and forehead line should be corrected at the same time.
The reduced scalp is fixed using Endotine, specially devised fixing device, to maintain the reduced forehead shape and decrease the pulling pain.
Endotine is absorbed into the body, foreign body sensation is little, and adverse effects such as inflammation, scar widening, etc. are minimized.
The surgery time can be reduced by
about 30 min to one hour
Forehead reduction scope can be increased by
about 0.3~0.5 cm
using Endotine to have a larger effect.
Since the scalp is fixed strongly after surgery,
the wide surgery area can be
Since the pulled scalp is strongly fixed one more time
before suture, the widening of the
scar is prevented.
It will be absorbed into the body naturally after six months,
and there is no foreign
