Can Frontal Bossing Reduction Be Done At The Same Time As A Hairline Advancement?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know if I am a good candidate for frontal bossing shaving and hairline lowering. I understand you may not be able to make my forehead flat but I was hoping that shaving it down a little and pairing that with hairline lowering could make a difference for me. 

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. You are correct is that te frontal bossing can not be completely reduced and that a hairline advancement will help reduce some of the frontal bossing appearance. Both procedures are synergestic to each other…particularly the hairline advancement to the frontal bossing.

The key question now is what amount of hairline advancement do you need and would that amount be realistic. To help answer that question you would need to draw on your forehead or on the actual picture where you would want the hairline advanced.
