Are there any complications from forehead contouring surgery?

Complications arising from a forehead contouring surgery are minimal since bone cement is used instead of silicone implants. When a silicone implant is inserted and used in a forehead contouring procedure, numerous complications can arise. Some of these include fluid accumulation, visible borders of the implant, and implant extrusion.

In contrast, the use of bone cement shows minimal complications following the surgery. The only one that may come up is contouring irregularities. However, most surgeons minimize this risk by sculpting and smoothing out the bone cement using specialized instruments. Unlike other surgeries, the likelihood of patients suffering from extrusions and/or infections is extremely rare with this surgery, as well.

Since undergoing a forehead contouring surgery is essentially similar to a brow lift surgery, the healing process following the procedure is quite quick.

Surgical Details of the Forehead Contouring Surgery

Performed as an outpatient procedure, a forehead contouring surgery starts with a scalp incision. Following this, surgeons usually use bone cement to perform the augmentation of the forehead area. During this process, if the surgeons locate bony irregularities and/or protrusions in the brow area, these will be smoothed out as well, to give the patient an aesthetically pleasing and smooth appearance.

Recovery

Generally, the recovery time following this procedure is about a week to 10 days. Such a quick recovery is possible because the incisions are all made in the scalp area. Patients are allowed to go about their regular routines in a few days, which mean minimal impact on the patient’s day-to-day life.

Some patients may have bruising in their eyelid area and some swelling, as well. However, these effects are not major and will not last very long.

Most patients are able to do their chores in a few days and many of them go back to work within a week, making this ideal.

What our patients say

G

After a year of extensive searching and interviews, I chose Dr. Kwan to perform my abdominoplasty. He very patiently answered all of my many questions before, during and after the procedure. In fact, since I have always had issues with scarring (I am a very dark-skinned African American), he took great care and all of the time we needed to make sure that scarring was minimal. Now that it is three years post surgery there is barely a trace and I love the results. Also, I can't say enough about his wonderful staff. These ladies take care of business and do it all with a smile. Given his education, experience and NY location I added him to my pool to interview but didn't really think I could afford him. Unlike his greedy and very commercial competitors, he is reasonably priced. I knew that I was in good hands when I chose him but had no idea the degree to which he would go to ensure that it was a positive experience for both of us.
