What Type Of Custom Forehead Implant Do I Need?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Procedure (s) recommended for making forehead larger, wider, rounder, more contour and lifting volume in glandular region and above brows- more feminine look and less convex face.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending all of your pictures. Your facial upper third enhancement goals, which is a not uncommon request for females, can only be achieved by some version of a custom forehead or forehead-temporal implant. It just depends on how extensive in surface areas coverage the augmentative effect needs to be.

A conservative or limited forehead augmentation effect can be achieved with a design that extends not further than the bony temporal line of the sides of the forehead. (see attached) 

Or a more complete forehead-temporal augmentation can be done by a design that crosses well over the bony temporal line which is appropriate for those women that have a natural flatter and narrow forehead shape. (see attached)

And there are numerous variations between these two ends of the custom forehead implant styles.
