Will A Forehead Implant Male The Top Of My Head Look Fuller?
Q: Dr. Eppley, With the addition of a peek implant to only the forehead to increase bone thickness and prominence of the forehead, will it automatically cause the top of the head to also look slightly fuller? This is because I imagine that the skin would have to stretched over an extra area over the newly inserted peek implant so the top of the head/overall head shape may look slightly different when stitching back the incision after inserting the new forehead implant?
Many thanks for your help.
A: The front part of the top of the head will have to increase as the footprint of the implant has to extend back further to blend in and have a smooth and natural contour. The material used is irrelevant, the forehead implant design principle remains the same.
