Will Forehead Reduction Make My Nasal Bridge Look Higher?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My nose bridge looks low on the upper side. Can a forehead reduction help give a raised nose bridge appearance?

A:Your nasal bridge is low and our brow bones are protrusive so it is the combination of both that contribute to your concerns. While brow bone-forehead reduction would be beneficial you are never going to do that procedure due to the long scalp scar that would be needed to do so. Thus the only acceptable option is nasal dorsal augmentation (see attached imaging)…which not only addresses the low nasal bridge but also makes the brow bones-forehead look less protrusive.
