What is the perfect age of doing this? Forehead countering. I want to have male look rather than female forehead look. I want to have like normal people so what age is recommended to perform this operation. I am 20 years old now. Is it ok if 25 age. If you reduce that excess bone would it look compatible with rest bottom face like cheeks and etc.

Reduction of the forehead bone
Taming the caveman forhead
It is true that some women have this procedure to look more feminine, but many men have this procedure because they feel that they look like a caveman and people assume they are mean, rough, or angry all the time. Reducing the brow ridge (not removing it completely) opens up the eyes and can make you look more approachable without making your face look too feminine. I would not perform the procedure on patients under the age of 18 in most cases, but at 20 it would likely be safe for you to have this surgery now or at any point in the future as long as you are in good health. With an experienced surgeon the procedure is very safe and there are few complications. It is important to discuss how the procedure will affect the overall appearance of your face with your surgeon.
