Q: Doctor Eppley I am a 22 years old man who would like to undergo the forehead augmentation procedure for a small change in the shape of the forehead. I believe that I am a good candidate for an endoscopic forehead augmentation because the building of the forehead I desire is small. What procedure is right for me(endoscopic or coronal incision augmentation) is something you know better and you will decide when you will meet me in person. However I would like you to inform me about the endoscopic augmentation, about the cost and the position of the small incisions. The building up I desire is small and it is for a small area of the forehead. How much does it cost a traditional endoscopic forehead augmentation?
A: Thank you for your inquiry. One of the biggest drivers of the cost of endoscopic forehead augmentation is for the material, Kryptonite. Since you said the build-up is small, I will assume that you will need only 5 grams or less. That would put the cost right around $6500 to $ 7500. Like traditional endoscopic forehead surgery, two scalp incisions are used for making the dissection and placing the material. They are very small, being less than one inch each and are located behind the frontal hairline and to the sides if possible. Please send me pictures of your forehead concerns for my assessment and recommendations.
