After the excess skin is removed, the remaining part is stitched back. The result is a lowered hairline. The surgery results in a scar that is hidden by hair grafting in case it is also performed. There is a biodegradable scalp that is put behind the skin. It attaches the skin with the muscles beneath so as to avoid scarring.

It is, at times, used as an independent technique to reduce the forehead. This is done by increasing layers of hair above the natural hairline. This method is non-surgical in nature.
