Will Brow Bone Augmentation Make My Eyes Look Less Buggy?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to get brow or maybe forehead augmentation. My eyes pop out too much and I would like to have deeper looking eyes. Do you think this will help?

A:  I would need to see some pictures of your face to determine by imaging whether this would be a good procedure for you. A side view of your face would be particularly useful. By definition, increasing the prominence of the brow bones and forehead will make the eyes appear more deep set and less ‘protrusive’. Brow bone augmentation makes the superolateral orbital rim bigger and, in some cases, patients may also benefit by infraorbital rim augmentation as well to get a circumferential deeper look to their eyes.
