Fat Grafting to Forehead or Other Options?
- Asked by wedowhatwecan in California

My forehead looks somewhat similar to the forehead of this celebrity, except that there is more of a bulge where my eyebrows are, especially on the outer corners of the orbital rims. Also, in flash photos I appear have a slight bulge above my brows, almost like a man's brow ridge. I realize it's not the end of the world but would fat grafting be a good option? I really dislike my forehead! It looks thick, awkward and androgynous. Thank you for your time.
There are many options, and you need to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and determine what options you have. There is Botox, Fillers, and surgical options.
Androgynous Brows and Forehead
In general, if you already have a thick or full forehead I do not think adding more fat would make sense. Bone contouring/shaving procedures can be performed, but the results can sometimes be quite disfiguring if things go badly, with indentations and irregularities. I think you would benefit from a face to face consultation. Even sending a photo with your question would be helpful.

Fat Grafting for Forehead
Yes, fat grafting is an option in this case, especially if you have signs of volume loss under the skin.

Bossing of the brow ridge is best treated with shaving the bone some. Sometimes adding a piece of alloderm above the bossing will soften and feminize the forehead.
