Will Brow Bone Augmentation Make My Big Eyes Look Smaller?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am really interested in getting Brow Bone Augmentation surgery done.I am a 21 year old girl with big eyes. But my problem is that my eyeballs stick out from my upper eyelids making me look really ugly and scary to people. Now I want to get this surgery done but I have very important questions that I would like you to answer for me. Will brow bone augmentation surgery help hide my eyeballs that stick out? I have a perfect nose and i like my nose just the way it is, but i’ve been told that having my full brow bone augmented could lead to changing the shape of the nose. Is this true? I would like to know the price range for a full Brow Bone Augmentation (BBA) surgery. I know this answer has to do with the type of material used, but out of an estimation I would like to know a range of price for both HA and PMMA. Lastly are the results of the BBA surgery permanent,meaning my eyeballs will be hidden for the rest of my life without worrying about any bad affect on my eyes in the long run. THANK YOU.
A: What you asking about brow bone augmentation is true. It can help deepen the look of the eyeball. It is just a question of how much. It has no effect on the appearance of the nose or the function of the eyes. The results would be permanent since the materials used are non-resorbable. The total cost of the procedure is in the range of $ 9500.
