How Can I Fix My Caved In Temples and Forehead?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in the skull reshaping surgery. I really don’t know how to explain it. The photos are a better demonstration. It’s like around my temples and upward it’s “caved in” or like slants not really sure how to describe. I have already submitted the consultation form but there was no photo upload option so I’m sending this one also thanks. 

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending all of your pictures. They illustrate well your concerns, an anterior temporal-lateral forehead deficiency. One treatment option is fat injections as they offer the least invasive approach. The issue with fat injections is how well they will survive but it is a valid treatment option. The second approach with assured volume although more invasive is the placement of custom anterior temporal/lateral forehead implants with the goal as seen in the attached imaging prediction.
