Reducing the Glabella Bone

Judging from the pictures, would it be more beneficial to simply fill and contour the indent in my forehead with BoneSource than to shave away the bone? Combination of the two? Will the scar that's left on my scalp be visible if my hair is short?

Fillers for non-surgical correction versus surgery

Obviously the bony surgery is more complicated and more risks but may provide longer term results. Why don't you first try a filler to see if this accomplishes your desired outcome. IF not, then proceed with surgery, knowing that you already tried the other option?
