Small dent on my forehead? (photo)

Only a few years back I started to notice this small dent that appears on my forehead. Which is likely caused by an injury during childhood. It looks as if that part of my forehead is a few layers underneath. I can't get a good picture of it since it's extremely hard to get a good angle. It looks like this, but less prominent. It's not a big deal actually, the reason I want it dealt with is because that it's making wrinkles form vertically, forming a big 'plus' sign on my head.

Fillers or fat grafting would be reasonable options to consider.

Treatment for forehead dent

The depression on your forehead could have been caused by childhood trauma. There are several treatment options. Fillers offer a temporary solution without having to undergo surgery. Fat grafting or transfer offers a permanent solution, but involves a surgical procedure. I recommend consultations with plastic surgeons in your local area to determine the best solution for your concerns. Thank you for sharing your photos and concerns. Best wishes.
