Forehead contouring is a surgical procedure that involves reconstructing the protruding brow bone and reshaping the orbital bones to achieve a softer, more feminine appearance.
Masculine foreheads are typically more prominent than feminine ones, characterized by a wider shape and a heavy brow ridge (also called brow bossing) above the eye area. Forehead contouring is usually performed to reduce these traits and increase the overall femininity of the facial structure. It is designed to give you a smoother, flatter forehead and can be performed in conjunction with a hairline restoration or brow lift for a more feminine look.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
People undergo forehead contouring to achieve a more a feminine facial profile, but that does not mean that this procedure is only for men. Women can have overtly masculine features as well, and they can detract from the femininity of the face. These features can be a strong jawline, a shorter forehead, or a prominent brow ridge. Forehead contouring is usually done as part of facial feminization surgery, but it can also be performed to correct the following:
- A heavy brow ridge
- A wide, sloping forehead
- Uneven or bumpy forehead

During your initial consultation, he will take the time to get to know you and your specific surgery goals. This is essential for the doctor to fully understand your motivations for undergoing the surgery and what outcome you would like to achieve. Here’s what you can expect from this initial meeting:
- Listen patiently to your motivations and goals
- Inquire about your medical history
- Conduct a thorough physical examination
- Discuss the procedure and the surgical process
- Propose an optimum surgical and treatment plan for your specific needs
- Answer all questions you may have regarding the procedure
Dr. Sedgh also offers video consultations for international or out-of-town patients. Should you proceed with the surgery, his highly trained team will help arrange the logistics for your visit.

Forehead contouring is usually an outpatient procedure, but some patients may be required to stay overnight to be monitored and observed. The sutures will be removed five days following the surgery, during your first post-op appointment.
Side effects such as swelling and bruising are normal and may last for up to two weeks, while mild swelling may persist for up to two months. Discomfort is also common, but easily managed through proper aftercare adherence. Patients can resume their day-to-day routine after a week, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least a month.
As a rule, Dr. Sedgh makes it a point to personally monitor his patients throughout the entire postoperative process. Starting from the first day post-surgery up to a year after the procedure, he will schedule several post-op appointments (in-person or through video conferencing) to properly monitor and assess your healing and recovery progress.
