Woman with big forehead spends $7,000 on reduction surgery

Mother who hid her big forehead underneath a fringe for over a decade has spent almost $7,000 on surgery to reduce it by 3cm – and says she ‘couldn’t be happier’ with the results

  • Underwent forehead reduction surgery after feeling conscious for decade 
  • The two-and-a-half hour operation, costing $6,958 moved her hairline, and reduced the size of her forehead by 3cm

A woman who hid her big forehead underneath a fringe has spent $6,958 (£5,000) on a surgery to reduce it by 3cm.

Camilla Coleman Brooks, 26, from North Carolina, spent years with a fringe to disguise her 8.5cm forehead. The average female forehead is around 6cm in the US.

The mother-of-two decided to undergo forehead reduction surgery – after disliking the way her forehead looked and feeling conscious for ten years.

The two-and-a-half hour operation moved her hairline, and reduced the size of her forehead by 3cm.

An incision was made along the marked area of the forehead and hairline and the surgeon carefully cut out the area marked for removal before joining the top incision with the forehead incision.

‘I used to look in the mirror and all I would see was a huge forehead,’ explained Camilla. ‘When I was younger I would always style my hair and notice how big it looked.

‘For the last few years I’ve hid it under a fringe or a hat. I am so happy with the results now that I’ve had the surgery.

‘I didn’t need the procedure to make me happy, but I love how I now look.’

Camilla used to hide her forehead underneath hats and fringes and felt incredibly self-conscious about it.

‘No one really bullied me for it but it was something I didn’t like,’ she said. ‘Having surgery was something I wanted to do for myself. It wasn’t that I didn’t like how I looked, I just wanted to be more proportional.’

She underwent surgery in February 2021 at Zeeba Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, which involved removing skin from her forehead to decrease it in size.

‘My forehead used to be 8.5cm and now it is 5.5cm,’ she said. ‘It’s an amazing difference.’

Camilla had to wear a bandage for a few days after the surgery and has a scar and swelling from the incision.

‘I couldn’t move my eyebrows properly for the first few days but it’s back to normal now,’ she said. ‘The top part of my forehead is still numb and it may take a while for the feeling to return there.’

The scar should heal within a few weeks but Camilla is already happy with the results.

‘I look in the mirror and I love it,’ she explained. ‘I didn’t need it to be happier, but I am so glad I did it.’

Camilla’s partner, Terrance, 26, a soldier in the army, is supportive of her decision.

Camilla has received some negative comments from her decision to have surgery but stands by having the operation.

‘It’s my body,’ she said. ‘I think people are so shocked by it because it is something they haven’t heard of.’

She is open with her children Owen, four, and Dorian, seven and believes that we should be able to do what we want with our bodies.

‘It was something I wanted to do for myself and I couldn’t be happier with the results,’ she added.

Bahman Guyuron at the Zeeba Clinic commented: ‘Forehead shortening is not common but the need for it.

‘It’s not a common operation as there is a lack of publicity for it and a fear of a discernible scar, which is rare.’
