How Well Does The Scar Look From Glabellar Furrows Excisions With An Underlying Bone Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Interested in forehead contouring, specifically glabellar furrow excision with placement of ePTFE bone implant. Please can you advise on the scar left following this surgery and does it fade?

A: The scar from glabellar furrow excisions usually do quite well since the furrow is already very much like a scar and a vertical scar line is in the natural relaxed skin tension of that area of the forehead. So yes th scar fades/blends in pretty well in the cases I have done.

 Please send me a picture of your glabellar area so I can see how these comments may apply to you.
