Where Is The Incision Placed For A Male Forehead Reduction Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, For a forehead reduction surgery in a young male with no hair loss, what kind of incision do you use? A hairline incision or coronal incision?

A: For male forehead reduction the use of a frontal hairline, immediate retrohairline or semi-coronal incision can be debated and all of them can be used. Each one has their advantages and disadvantages. It also depends on what type of forehead reduction is needed. Without knowing   the type of forehead reduction it is impossible to determine which of these incisional approaches may be best.
