Can A Custom Brow Bone Implant Ever Move With Exercise?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I like your explanation about Brow Bone Hypoplasia on website and I am thinking get this done, I am asian and I like the asian model’s result on that section, my purpose to have brow bone raised to have more eye depth and more defined look. 

I do have couple questions if you don’t mind, where and how long is the incision for PMMA or HA on brow bone? in the hair? so the forehead skin would be opened to reach the brow bone right? I know Radiesse is calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres filler , can we reach the same result using Radiesse filler , multiple times of injection of course since most of it dissolves . lastly, 3D, you meant 3D printing right? what material do you use for that? is there a risk of implant movement in normal daily activities or exercises?

A: Thank you for your inquiry. Permanent brow bone augmentation is done best by a custom brow bone implant, not injectable fillers or any form of bone cements. These require big incisions to place (bone cements) and are unreliable in shape. Custom brow bone implants are placed through small incisions using an endoscopic technique. Being preformed by computer design they have a reliable shape and can be properly placed to provide the soft tissue push to create the desired aesthetic effect. Once these implants are in position and secured they will never move despite what one’s daily activities or exercise regimen is.
