According to a survey by Medisetter, seven in ten people find a rounded forehead more aesthetically appealing than a flat or sunken one. People of any race may have flatter foreheads, though the problem is more common among certain ethnicities. This is the most common reason that people choose forehead augmentation. However, some men feel that their foreheads are too small, and they might seek augmentation in order to achieve a more masculine appearance.
Dr. Kwan utilizes an innovative technique to build up and sculpt the forehead, using a synthetic bone cement. The human body easily accepts this type of material, and it functions like natural bone tissue. During the procedure, he will create one or more incisions to access frontal bone, and then apply a small amount of bone cement. The location of incisions will vary, depending on your needs.
Women who have noticeably protruding foreheads may feel that their faces appear too masculine. Additionally, men who have unusually large foreheads may feel self-conscious due to their disproportionate features. In either case, reduction and sculpting of the frontal bone can be a good solution.
This type of reduction is not to be confused with a traditional brow lift procedure, which only addresses soft tissue. Recontouring involves creating an incision, and then cutting or grinding the bone as needed to improve the forehead size and create an optimal shape.
