Will Forehead Reduction Make Me More Attractive?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in some type of forehead reduction. I am a young woman and I’m not happy about my face at all. The biggest problems I have are with my jawline and my frontal bone. I also have really deep insetted eyes. I’m kinda chubby but I used to be skinny and I had to exact same problem. I have big cheeks , something like squirrel cheeks and jowls on the side of my face. I really want a nice tight jawline. When I tighten the skin together and pull it through my ears I see it the way I would want it to be. I was wondering if that is possible for me without having a jawline surgery.

I have a very big frontal bone and I would love to have a nice flat forehead like most women have. I was wondering if that is possible for me to get it flattened. Maybe there is also someting you could do for my deep insetted eyes. I want to send you some picture’s and I’m wondering if you could look at them yourself and if you have any tips for me to make me as beautiful as possible.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. The most effective procedure that you could do for your face would be a combined orbital/forehead reduction and hairline scalp advancement. This would reduce the depth of your eyes, lessen the brow ridge prominence, and make the forehead look smaller.

Only a jowl lift can create the desired look you are after along the jawline and you are too young for that procedure. There are no non-surgical methods that can create the same effect.
