Does Having Had A Prior Coronal Browlift Preclude Having Forehead Reshaping Surgery In The Future?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in aesthetic forehead/skull reshaping, in addition to anterior temporalis muscle reduction for head width reduction, however I previously had a coronal brow lift done.
I understand that certain procedures, such as hairline lowering in particular, are contraindicated if one has previously undergone a coronal brow lift due to potential of compromising blood supply to the scalp. Are there any other procedures that are contraindicated if one has previously undergone a coronal brow lift? Are skull reshaping and/or anterior muscle reduction for head width reduction feasible? I suppose I’m concerned because they all involve the scalp.
Thank you for reading.
A:While a prior coronal browlift means one can not a frontal hairline advancement in the future, it does not preclude any other bony forehead or temporal muscle procedures.
