How I Better Understand the Effects of a Custom Forehead Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I hope your well. I am writing to you in regards to having a few questions about custom forehead, temporal widening implant as I am interested in getting this procedure done . 

Lastly, I would love to see some before and after pictures to get a better understanding of what I could expect.

A: You are going to find it very hard to find any before and after pictures due to patient confidentiality. Most young people, who make up the majority of custom facial implant patients, are exquisitely sensitized of having their face shown in any capacity…..most likely how you might feel as well.

But in designing custom forehead-temporal implants what results other patients have is not all thaf relevant since every custom design is unique in its shape and thicknesses based on the patient’s aesthetic desires. Such implant designs are based on initially doing imaging of the patient’s pictures to determine their specific aesthetic goals. (known as setting the target) That is how you find out what the aesthetic outcome may be.
