Is Forehead Horn Reduction A Safe and Effective Procedure?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I understand this is kind of a new procedure, so I wonder how safe/risky it is, as well as how successful it can be, e.g., how likely the forehead can be completely smoothened.

I’m also wondering if there’s an age restriction for this procedure as I’m worried the bones will continue growing if I’m not old enough for example.

A: 1) Forehead horn reduction is not a new procedure.

2) It is a safe and successful forehead reshaping procedure.

3) How much the forehead horns can be reduced (and the forehead completely smooth) depends on the thickness of the bone and how much can be removed.

4) There is no age restriction for the procedure.
