Can My Frontal Hairline Lowering Be Reversed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had hairline lowering surgery three year ago. The doctor removed almost 1.5 inches and left me with an uneven scar as well as a significantly lowered forehead that is unnatural and disproportionate to my features. I have read and saw a comment from Dr. Eppley online that with the help of tissue expanders over the course of weeks/months, it could help stretch the skin and restore the length of the forehead. I would really like to discuss this with him as I want to restore the size of my forehead to it’s original state.

A: While I don’t know whaf your original forehead length was, even if it was an inch (25mms), no amount of tissue expansion is going to reverse that amount of forehead tissue removal.  At best it may be half that amount.
