before we explain Neanderthal Forehead Surgery let us to explane what the neanderthal is, You are not certainly attracted to sullen, boorish, and frown faces at first glance as well. This has caused human beings to think of a way to eliminate the violent-looking face in some faces along with the significant progress of medical science. By inventing new methods from Botox injections and non-invasive approaches to surgical methods, medical scientists have always made attempts to find a way to eliminate the violent-looking face as naturally and permanently as possible.
In the initial facial examination, the face can be divided into three parts: upper face, middle face, and lower face. In other words, the forehead and eyebrows constitute the largest part in the upper face. In this section, we aim to separately address factors that cause the forehead to look violent and describe the new solutions, such as Neanderthal forehead surgery, to correct this complication.
Causes of frontal bossing or Neanderthal forehead
Forehead protrusion in the eyebrows area and the surrounding regions is one of the most common causes of the violent-looking face in the men, and sometimes, women’s faces. This protrusion can be attributed to overgrowth and enlargement of the forehead sinuses after puberty in some people. This phenomenon has its roots in the excessive secretion of growth hormone (hypersomatotropism), sex hormone imbalance, or hereditary factors.
Excessive enlargement of sinus walls
The sinuses consist of a collection of cavities that are empty inside and are located within the bones of the face. They are connected to the nose through a channel called the sinus channel. The secretions from the sinuses drain through this channel. According to another theory, the reason for a Neanderthal or protruded forehead is as follows: sometimes, air is trapped in the sinuses and the sinuses are filled with air much more than usual as the sinus duct is blocked. This increases the pressure on the sinus wall, and finally, causes forehead protrusion. This increase in pressure on the sinuses wall causes the sinus wall to be pushed forward over time, leading to a protrusion in the lower part of the forehead (above the eyebrows).
On the other hand, this increase in the internal sinus pressure may cause headaches in people.The prevalence of sinus headaches is higher in people with protruded forehead than in ordinary people. Of course, all people with protruded forehead do not experience these headaches; however, there is still no study that attributes the cause of the sinus headaches to the excessive enlargement of sinuses.

In this picture, you can see a clear example of forehead protrusion. Pay attention to the protrusion of the lower forehead and above eyebrows.
Effect of heredity on a protruded forehead formation: A number of scientists are of the opinion that the main cause of a protruded forehead is hereditary and genetic factors and this problem occurs due to genes transferred from our ancestors. Protruded forehead is more common among men.
Typically, the forehead in men has a slightly concave shape and there may be a small sinus bump, which is normal. However, excessive protrusion of the frontal sinuses walls may cause the face to appear abnormal and seem violent and sullen. In people with protruded forehead, drooping eyebrows are also observed. This reduces the distance between the eyes and the eyebrows and gives a sunken appearance to the eye area, and also reduces the attractiveness of the eyes.
Fortunately, a protruded forehead is seen rarely in women, but in rare cases, this problem reduces the elegance and attractiveness of the feminine face.
Surgery, the solution to correct protruded or Neanderthal forehead
Today, protruded forehead correction surgery is used as a new method to shave the bony protrusion of the forehead for attenuation or elimination of protrusions caused by the enlargement of the sinus wall of the forehead. Of course, currently, we only address the aesthetic aspect of this surgery in this short article, but according to the experiences I acquired from several surgeries that I have personally performed, I found that the chronic sinus headaches have been significantly eliminated or reduced post-surgery in people with protruded forehead.

Important points in protruded forehead correction surgery
The protruded forehead, which is often common in men due to excessive sinus growth, can be corrected through cosmetic surgery in the forehead region and by shaving the bone. Resolving this problem (protruded forehead correction) in men has a significant effect on the beauty of the person and boosting facial rejuvenation. Most men do not know much about this cosmetic surgery. The forehead and eyebrow lift can be done at the same time with this surgery. It has been proven by experience that half of the chronic headaches in men can be eliminated via performing this surgery and sinus correction by the surgeon at the same time. Protruded forehead correction surgery is performed under complete anesthesia in the operation room, but needs no recovery period, and people can do their daily routine after the surgery and regaining consciousness. This cosmetic surgery is performed by an experienced team in the Cosmetic Surgery Center of Dr. Bayat, a subspecialist in head and neck surgery and one of the best head and neck plastic surgeons. Those who are interested can see the before and after protruded forehead surgery pictures in the relevant link.

Protruded forehead correction methods and forehead and eyebrow lift
Currently, there is no method other than open surgery to correct this protrusion and the endoscope method can make no change in the forehead sinus wall.
Is there a possibility of increased risk of sinusitis following the protruded forehead surgery?
Sinus stenosis can be corrected at the same time with sinus wall correction surgery, this way sinusitis is not only expected not to increase, but also it is possibly reduced in people with recurrent sinusitis in the forehead sinus area (frontal sinuses) as the opening of the sinuses get larger.
Is there an alternative method to correct the Neanderthal appearance or forehead protrusion?
Neanderthal protrusion can be reduced only through a surgical method. However, gel injection, fat injection, etc., in depressed areas can be suggested in some people with upper forehead depression (that definitely shows more protrusion) to correct part of this inconsistency. This technique causes the protrusions to relatively and partially seem less visible due to vision error.
To what extent does the forehead protrusion need to be corrected?
The existence of a little protrusion in this part of the forehead causes no problem in men and is natural and no surgery is needed if the protrusion is to the extent that it does not harm the facial beauty of a person.
Is there a possibility of recurrence of symptoms post-Neanderthal (protruded) forehead surgery?
It can be said that this possibility (recurrence of symptoms) exists in all surgeries, but regarding the nature of this surgery, the possibility of its recurrence is very low. However, the anatomy of that part of the forehead in some people does not allow the protrusion to be fully corrected and the protrusion correction should be done to the extent that is harmonious with and proportional to other regions.
Is there any association between sinus headaches and frontal protrusion? Is surgery recommended to solve this problem?
Under no circumstances should you choose this surgery to get rid of a headache. Although we witness the reduction or full elimination of headaches in people with sinus headaches in the frontal forehead, this surgery is not scientifically performed solely to eliminate headache.
Does protruded (Neanderthal) forehead correction surgery affect breathing?
This surgery will have no positive or negative effect on nasal congestion or stuffy nose. People with nasal congestion may need measures, such as correction of nasal deviation or nasal polyp, etc.
Can the asymmetries on either side of the forehead be removed through protruded forehead correction surgery?
There may be asymmetries on the protrusions on both sides of the forehead, which are related to the growth of the sinuses walls. In most cases this asymmetry can be corrected to some extent and not completely.
Can the protrusion in the upper part of the forehead be eliminated using this method?
There is no frontal sinus in the upper parts of the forehead and these protrusions are usually caused by skull form and can be corrected by another surgical method. In severe cases, these deformities should be eliminated with the aid of a neurosurgeon. The skull form also changes in this type of surgery.
Where is the incision site in protruded forehead correction surgery?
The incision site varies depending on the height of the forehead. If the forehead is short, the incision site is within the hairline and if the forehead is long, the surgeon may place the incision at the hairline.
Is protruded forehead surgery performed under anesthesia?
As the frontal bone is shaved down, this surgery is recommended to be performed under anesthesia.
Is sinusitis treated by performing protruded forehead surgery?
Sinusitis and migraine headaches go away by performing this surgery. Moreover, sinuses can drain and won’t be congested as much as possible.
Can forehead wrinkles be removed via protruded forehead correction surgery?
The vertical wrinkles in the forehead area are eliminated.
