Patients in the New Jersey area who are unhappy with the contouring of their forehead may consider forehead bone surgery. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is a New York cosmetic plastic surgeon who has helped hundreds of patients enhance their natural appearance through procedures such as facelifts, liposuction, breast augmentation, and other reconstructive surgeries. He can provide patients of all ethnicities with a method of correcting indentations, improving the curve of flat foreheads, and reducing protrusion, which may look unattractive.
Forehead bone surgery is done to make the area more aesthetically pleasing. The bone of the skull is the key factor. X-rays are taken of the face to determine how the bone is situated underneath the skin and determine the best areas to add synthetic bone cement. This material looks and acts like real bone and can be added to the forehead to create dimension. Some of the bone can also be filed down to address areas where there is too much protrusion of the bone. Patients will work with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD to discuss the many ways they can address their appearance with forehead bone surgery.
Recovery time from this procedure will vary, depending on the amount of work done to the area, and on whether any other surgical procedures are done at the same time. Most patients can expect to take a week or two off work to rest and facilitate the healing process. In most cases, incisions are made along the hairline, so any scarring will be covered by hair and made unnoticeable.
Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD has assisted hundreds of patients with improving their forehead and making it less or more noticeable depending on the needs and desires of the individual.
