Forehead Contouring: Myths or Facts?
Myth: You need a CT or X-Ray before Forehead contouring.
Fact: If you have no history of prior forehead surgery or injury this is completely unnecessary. An experienced surgeon gains nothing from these pictures. And, 3-D imaging is equally useless. It may be fun to see the pictures, but is not worth the cost or the radiation exposure.
Myth: You can just have the bone on your forehead drilled down.
Fact: The vast majority of people (95% or more) need the front of the forehead bone to be set back and repositioned. Drilling or burring it down will only result in an unsafe overly thin forehead.
Myth: The center of the forehead is all that matters for your appearance.
Fact: The whole area gets shaped correctly with Dr. Spiegel. This includes opening the eyes, addressing any irregularities on the sides, and smoothing out the primary area of bossing.
Dr. Spiegel has done more forehead surgery than any other practicing surgeon. With all of those cases he’s seen some unexpected things! On two separate occasions he found a bullet in the head and the patient had no recollection of having been shot!
Did you know that the skull bones aren’t always white? Sometimes they are yellow or orange in areas and Dr. Spiegel has even several times seen black bone!
