Dear Sir or Madam, I am a 35 year old male-to-female transsexual who would like to undergo FFS. When I was doing my research in the internet I found there are obviously two ways to "flatten" the forehead: 1.) burring the brow ridge 2.) fat grafting Tbh, I am a bit confused. Method 1) is the procedure I already heard of which involves a large incision. The second option I was suggested from a plastic surgery clinic in South Korea. What would be the advantage/disadvantage on both methods?
Facial Feminization Surgery - Forehead Burring or Fat Grafting?

Facial feminization of the forehead in the TG patient.
Facial feminization of the forehead in the TG patient is something I have done for 35 years. Burring the bone away gives accurate results and can be done thru a hairline scar. Fat grafting I use elsewhere but not on the forehead where it can move and give asymmetry and makes the forehead larger not smaller which burring does.
