Forehead contouring with injections or an implant.

Implants are not "risky" if the surgeon is familiar with them. The main risk which is low is that of infection. This would require the removal of the implant. If someone has a smaller area to contour, fillers such as Radiesse or fat can give good results.

Sculptra injectable can be used in the forehead. It is an off-label advanced technique to be sure to choose your physician most carefully.  Good luck and be well.

If you really have a flat forehead then fillers are not a solution. You  may want to consult with a craniofacial surgeon.

In situations where forehead contouring is desired,Sculptra, a synthetic bio-polymer can be utilized. Sculptra in this circumstance is injected in a plane just above the bone, stimulating collagen growth and subsequent volume to the desired area.  The aesthetic benefits of Sculptra last about 2 years.

The use of filler in the forehead can be quite effective.  The two most common places are in the glabella (between the eyebrows) and just above the lateral brow.  Care must be taken as this is one of the danger areas for filler where serious complications can occur.
