Should I Have A Forehead Augmentation Done Before A Rhinoplasty?
Q: Dr. Eppley, What is the staging order of the 2 procedures below:
1/ forehead-brow implant (to achieve lower brows)
The forehead implant needs to create a wider forehead, more volume at the temple region, more squared look anteriorly, less slope from side
2/ glabella augmentation/rhinoplasty
(which I will get elsewhere. I am Asian)
A: It would make the most aesthetic sense to get the upper face augmented so then the nose can be made to fit with it…rather than the reverse which would be less predictable and harder to do.
