Does Forehead Horn Reduction Surgery Cause Hair Loss?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, I’m interested in the forehead horn reduction surgery but I have a few questions.

What is the cost of procedure? Is the incision made within hair line? Does incision cause hair loss? Does the scar heal to the point where it’s not noticeable on darker skin tones? Living out of state, how long would I have to be in Indiana for the whole process?

A:In answer to your forehead horn reduction surgery questions:

1) The incision(s) can be made at or just behind the frontal hairline.

2) The incision does not cause hair loss.

3) Patients have never reported to me that they thought their scars were noticeable, regardless of their skin pigment.

4) Less than 48 hours. Come in surgery, go home the next day.

5_ To provide accurate cost of surgery quotes I would need to see some pictures of your forehead.
