Will A Brow Bone Implant Help Affirm My Identity?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m transgender and am really interested in a brow bone implant because that’s something my face lacks. Mine is barely noticeable and an implant would affirm my gender identity.

A: I am assuming that you are a female to male transgender patient since most facial masculinization procedures are augmentative in nature such as brow bone augmentation. Please send me some pictures of your face for my assessment for this procedure. There are multiple different materials that can be used for brow bone augmentation, and I have used them all. But I have found that the custom brow bone implant approach to be the most effective.
