What Type of Custom Forehead Implant Design Can Create a Rounder and Wider Forehead?

Q: Dr. Eppley, To visually have a shorter, more convex and feminine face. More round, soft wider foreheads, hoping to use forehead implant to open up forehead and elevate eyebrows as well. Mid face projection with cheekbone implants for projection and width, considered maxillary implants and dental corrections or orthognathic surgery- Main concern if we had to pick one- forehead implant. Need to see a few examples of results.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. Since you have focused on the forehead the type of augmentation you need is a custom implant that provides  some width into the temporal area and some correction of the backward slope. You may find the attached implant design and patient results helpful in understanding how that type of forehead shape change is achieved. This could be combined with a brow lift done concurrently.
