It is perfectly normal for us to prefer certain facial features over others. If you are self-conscious about having a large forehead then first of all-don’t worry, you’re not alone! If you are struggling to learn to love this particular facial feature then there are plenty of beauty tips which can help to reduce the appearance of your forehead. For example, getting a fringe. Contouring can also help to create the illusion of a smaller forehead. The trick is to darken the areas that you would like less emphasis on and brighten the areas that you want more emphasis on. So, if you darken the outline of your forehead with a bronzer or a contour stick it should help to make your forehead appear smaller.
Another alternative for reducing the appearance of a large forehead is a hair transplant. This is done using either Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or Follicular unit extraction (FUE). Both procedures take place under local anaesthetic, and the one which is used depends on what the surgeon decides is suitable and how many hairs need to be removed. If your desired outcome is to bring your hairline forward, then the hair follicles would be removed from another area and inserted at the front of your head thus bringing your hairline forward and reducing the size of your forehead. So in answer to the question posed in the title of this blog, yes a hair transplant can reduce the appearance of a large forehead.
Former The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) star Maria Fowler and her husband both had a hair transplant in September 2017. Fowler has recently expressed how happy she is with the results so far, which have left her with a reduced forehead size and a better hairline. Although this may sound like it is something that you would be interested in, it is equally understandable that surgical procedures are not for everyone, and it is important to feel comfortable and confident with the process.
