Brow Bone Shaving/reduction Question

I have a (bit) of prominent eyebrow ridge which I might want to get rit of ( the too much part of it). I know the CT scan story. I also might consider 1-3 fractional co2 laser treatments. Do I have to get this before browbone reduction, or after? Or does the way of order doesnt make (that) much of a difference? Is there any risk because of the skin tissue? Is there anything else which I have to be aware of related to these 2 treatments (c02 laser and brow bone red.) in relation of each other?

Brow bone reduction.


The laser is for wrinkles and should come after the brow bone reduction if it is even needed. I have done brow bone reduction for 35 years and I have never had a complication with this surgery. The Irregular Trichophytic incision would be best as the hairline can be lowered or kept the same and a forehead lift can be done if needed at the same time.
