What Is The Best Material For Forehead Augmentation?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to undergo skull augmentation surgery.
My problem is that my forehead is convex and seen from the front it looks very narrow. The areas to increase are shown in the Figure 1
To hope for a “global” increase it will be necessary to increase the projection of the eyebrow arches.
As the modification would be in the visible part of the skull, the forehead, I was wondering what strategy, materials would you consider minimizing the visibility of the edges of the implants.
Is it possible to use custom implants ( PMMA or HA or silicone) coupled with PMMA or HA in liquid powder form on site to fill the holes?
In the link below it is explained that it is possible to use PMMA as a filler for the holes, can you use this technique?
A: In answer to your implant edge transitional question, there is no need with silicone forehead implants to use bone cements as they have a feather edge to them by design.
