I'm female but my forehead is flat. Can doctors use Radiesse or any hydraulic acid filler to create a rounder forehead? (Photo)

Yes, forehead shaping can be achieved with fillers.
Absolutely. I do believe that this is the 'in' filler region for the past few years in SE Asian countries, but Western Countries are catching up. There is definitely a trend to fill the forehead area as it can also provide a partial brow lift. This area is one of the trickiest to fill, and you do need to see someone who is Board certified, and also an expert in forehead filling- this is due to the arterial supply of the area. Results are excellent if performed correctly. I personally only use HA fillers such as Juvederm Volift or Belotero in this area. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Thank you for your photos. Filler in the forehead can be performed safely by an experienced injector. This area is considered off-label for all available fillers, but it can be done with great results to improve the roundness of the forehead, particularly on profile view. My preference is with a thicker gel such as Juvederm VOLUMA which lasts longer and is better at lifting the tight skin of the forehead. Hope this helps!

Yes, you can use longer term fillers; but understand that they will have to be repeated even though certain companies state they are more long lasting. You can also use a custom forehead implant placed via hidden incisions for a permanent approach; but albeit, a surgical one.

The short answer is that yes, Radiesse or another dermal filler could be used to create a rounder look to your forehead. However, this is a very delicate area and requires a great deal of expertise to treat. Please find an board-certified dermatology injector with expertise in contouring the face using dermal fillers such as Radiesse.

Filler to Create Rounder Forehead
Yes, fillers can be used to improve the contour of the forehead. I have been a big advocate of fat grafting for over 25 years but not to create a rounder forehead because of the risk of irregularities.
Rounding it out with--Forehead with HA fillers, bellafill
This is something I do often with HA fillers to create a rounder forehead or Belafill which is more long term and collagen based. You need a formal consultation with someone who is an expert in filler treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
