Case Study – Extreme Brow Bone Reduction with Frontal Sinus Obliteration

  Background:  Brow bone reduction is a facial contouring procedure to reduce the supraorbital rim protrusion above the eyes. While it is most commonly associated with facial feminization surgery, it is also done in men for very large brow bone protrusions that are often associated with a backward slanting forehead.

  The typical perception of brow bone reduction is a horizontal decrease in the projection of the supaorbital rims. Such surgery is done for either the male who has large ‘Neanderthal-like’ brow bones or in facial feminization surgery for either transgender or non-transgender patients.

Case Study – Microplate Fixation of Transgender Brow Bone Reduction

Case Study – Male Brow Bone Reduction

  Background: Males almost always have much more pronounced brow bones than females due to a greater pneumatization effect of the frontal sinuses. Numerous studies have shown that the male frontal sinus is bigger, usually asymmetric and has a bigger left side than that of the right. This is clinically evident in the external shape Read More…
