Are Forehead Implants Placed Behind The Forehead Muscles?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Are the insertion of the forehead implants performed by you? If so, how invasive/risky is it, and would they be placed behind the forehead muscles? 

A: In answer to your forehead implant questions:

1)  Since I am the surgeon I am the one who performs all aspects of every surgery that I do.

2) Having many forehead implants the risks of the procedure are really aesthetic in nature…how well does the implant design achieve the patient’s aesthetic forehead reshaping goals.

3) Forehead implants are placed in the subperiosteal tissue plane directly on top of the bone which places it behind all overlying soft tissue layers.
