While preparing for forehead contouring surgery, patients should stop smoking, avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.


There are 3 main types of forehead contouring procedure:

 

  • Implantation procedure can be performed with different materials such as injectable material, fat graft or permanent implants at the mid-forehead area to improve the curve of forehead profile.
  • Bone shaving procedure can be performed above the eye area to reduce the bone. The incision is made on the scalp behind the hairline. Sometimes, shaving may be combined with a dermal filler to create a smoother and more feminine appearance. 
  • Bone contouring can be performed for bone compression at the outer table of the frontal bone in front of frontal air sinus.

 

 


 After the surgery, patients will have sutures that need to be removed at about 1 week. At this time, there may be some swelling and bruising around the eyes. However, they usually disappear in 7 to 10 days. Using ice packs may minimize the discomfort.During the recovery period, patients should keep their head and neck elevated, especially while sleeping. Following the surgeon's instructions is of paramount importance during forehead contouring recovery.
