Fat Grafting for Small Forehead Defect

The small size of your forehead defect and its location would make a fat injection treatment a good option. It may be able to be improved with a single treatment but that would depend on how well the fat graft survives.

Dents and folds can be corrected by fat transfer, soft tissue filler and of course, PRP.  It is the decision of the patient and the plastic surgeon to determine the best course of treatment depending on several factors including;

your medical condition and what treatments best suit your health needs

the reason for the dent

how much downtime you are willing to have


which treatment you feel most comfortable with

willingness to repeat the procedure as needed, if required (maintenance)

it is important that you seek the counsel of a qualified cosmetic plastic surgeon and determine the best course of action for you.  There are many solutions you can discuss.

good luck with your procedure.

Fat Transfer to Forehead

   If I am seeing the dent correctly, fat grafting may be reasonable.  However, this is probably a combination of musculature in the inferior aspect and the shape of the underlying bone.  There are several possibilities here to mold the area.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
