Brow Bone Augmentation

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I intend to make the brow bone augmentation , but I have doubts as to what material you prefer. I want to know if there is the possibility of having contact with patients of this type of procedure? I’m curious to see how the result was , as the photos that are on this site do not show at various angles. Thanks.

A: When it comes to brow bone augmentation the type of material used is largely irrelevant per se. What matters is the surgical approach (open scalp incision vs endoscopic), amount and shape of the desired brow bone augmentation, cost and the risk of revision. All of these factors put together will ‘control’ the material of choice. I have used every material for brow bone and forehead augmentation that exists and they all can work in the right circumstances. Each material option has their own advantages or disadvantages, none are perfect. The material chosen does not control the shape or the result, just how easy or hard it is to achieve it.

Young facial reshaping patients are notoriously discreet about their surgery and few will allow their pictures to be shown or will talk about it.
