Will Bony Forehead Reduction Make A Smooth Transition Into the Skull Above It?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I will be scheduling my surgery soon, but there is a question I had that came up. When you perform forehead reduction, will there be a chance for unevenness, or it is a smooth transition from the forehead bone burring to the rest of the skull? If my question makes sense. 

A: Good question. Any form of skull reshaping (and the forehead is part of the skull) must be done with a smooth transition from one skull surface to the next adjoining one. This is important whether it is for augmentation or reduction purposes.
