Will Significant Periorbital Augmentation Need A Forehead Augmentation As Well?
Q: Dr. Eppley,Can a supraorbital rim and infraorbital implants (periorbital augmentation) give 1.5cm forward projection or does it need to be combined with a forehead implant to avoid protrusion or bossing?
A: That would depend on doing some side profile computer imaging to see what that change would look like. But as a general rule any periorbital bone augmentation that exceeds 7mms or so (0.7cms) would likely need a forehead augmentation as well.
