Can My Frontal Hairline Advancement Be Reversed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am 22 and have previously had hairline lowering/forehead reduction surgery. The measurements of this surgery was 20/20/24mm (R/C/L) of cranial forehead removed. I would like to enquire if there is surgery to reverse this or for my hairline to be raised/ reshaped/curved/augmented. I feel like I now look more masculine and my hairline appears unnatural now.

Looking forward to hearing your response.

A: Frontal hairline advancement is an essentially irreversible procedure surgically. Once the non-hair bearing forehead skin is removed there is no way to replace it. The only treatment option would be laser hair removal.
