Am I A Good Candidate For Brow Bone Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’ve been heavily considering the brow bone reduction surgery for the majority of my life. I’ve come to realize it’s too hard for me to accept the way I look and I really want some minor adjustments. I want to look more feminine when it come to my forehead. I’d like to know what my most accurate grand total would be based off these images, please.

A:While you do have a low nasal radix/bridge, which always contributes to making the central brow appear bigger, you do have an overall bigger forehead/brow bones. Their reduction would likely produce the attached imaging improvement. The only questions for the brow bones is whether a burring reduction or a bone flat setback would be needed to achieve that effect. This requires a lateral frontal sinus x-ray to make that determination.
