How Type Of Forehead Reshaping Do I Need To Get Rid Of These Forehead Bumps And Have More Feminine Curve to My Forehead Shape?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in forehead reshaping? I’m very unhappy with the ridges & bumps on my forehead. On a side profile view, it looks very straight and doesn’t have a pretty feminine curve. What are your recommendations for improvement?

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your forehead pictures. You have four prominent forehead bumps, the paired medial brow bones and the upper paired forehead horns. Normally those would be reduced to eliminate them but that is counterproductive in them presence of a non-curved forehead profile. Thus the forehead reshaping concept of covering over these bumps to create a more feminine curves to the forehead would achieve both forehead reshaping aims. The only debate is whether this should be done using a custom forehead implant with a more limited scalp incisional approach or to use bone cement with a more open scalp incisional approach.
