Can Temporal Reduction and Brow Bone Reduction Be Performed At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, What exists for myself is well over 10mms  of temporal contour excessand I know removing the posterior temporal muscle completely would make immense changes in my appearance. I’m based in Australia and I’m truly surprised that you’re the only surgeon going around that offers this procedure so I’m considering of traveling over. Have you had patients travel to you from overseas before? 

Just a couple of questions, can you by any chance perform more than one procedure in one operation? I’m questioning that because I want a brow bone reduction done as well as a posterior temporal reduction done on myself.

A: In answer to your temporal and brow bone reuction questions:

1) The vast majority or my practice is with patients who did not live where I am located. So geographically distant patients, including patients from Australia, is the norm not the exception.

2) Brow bone reduction can be performed at the same time as temporal reduction. The key question is what technique is needed to do it. But regardless of technique it can be performed during the same surgery.
