What Procedures Do I Need To Make My Forehead More Feminine?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I want to reshape my forehead for a more feminine appearance. Here are a couple of images. As you can see, my forehead is rather sloped, instead of rounded. Likewise, from the front, there is a horizontal crevice that can be seen in certain lighting. Also, I am looking at how to make my side profile more feminine and attractive. Thanks!

A: Thank you for sending your pictures. The reason your forehead appears masculine to you is that you have brow bone hypertrophy and a result suprabrow bone break (horizontal crevice that you see) which then becomes a more recessed flatter forehead. Admittedly this is a classic male forehead shape, not that of a female. The combination of brow bone reduction by burring and a small amount of bone cement to the forehead above it will help feminize your forehead.
