What Options do I Have for Filling Forehead Dent, Filler, Fat Graft, etc? (photo)

I've had a this forehead dent since I was four, when I hit my head on something hard. It has always bothered me. I'm thinking it's compressed layers of my skin or necrosis of fat with underlying scar tissue. How would I be able to fix this? Fat graft? Juvederm? Botox?

Filling Forehead Dent

Fillers such as Juvederm will provide  temporary correction of the forehead depression. Fat grafting will give you  permanent improvement. Botox, a neuromodulator, will limit muscular contraction but this will not improve the contour of your forehead.

Injectible fillers and fat grafting...can both be helpful

Injectible fillers can provide a temporary result [up to about a year], while fat grafting can be a great long term solution. Make sure you choose an experience surgeon.

BOtox will NOT help in this case.
