Brow Bone Augmentation

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am looking for a doctor that has done brow bone augmentation. I came across Dr. Eppley and am considering both rhinoplasty and brow bone augmentation to improve my profile view. I want my forehead to come out further, as of right now my eyes are flush with my forehead and it’s very flat. I want more dimension in my face. I wanted to know what you would recommend and how confident yo are with Asian rhinoplasty. Thanks!

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. I have done many Asian forehead and brow augmentation and rhinoplasty procedures. The key question for both procedures are the materials to do them. In the forehead you have the option of either bone cement application through a near complete coronal incision or a custom forehead/brow bone implant placed through a smaller scalp incision. For the rhinoplasty, one of its key elements is the augmentation of the nasal bridge. This can be done using either a cartilage rib graft or a silicone nasal implant.

The use of these various materials for both forehead and brow bone augmentation and rhinoplasty affects numerous aspects of the procedures including cost and recovery. I would need further input from you on these choices.
