Plastic Surgery Case Study – Total Soft Tissue Forehead Reshaping with Frontal Hairline Advancement, Browlift and Temporal Implants

Background:  There are numerous dimensional considerations in forehead surgery. The contour of the forehead is controlled by the shape of the underlying bone centrally and the temporal muscles laterally which can be modified by either augmentation or reduction. The vertical length of the forehead, however, is controlled by the soft tissue landmarks of the frontal Read More…
