With time, the frontal sinuses – air cavities situated at the base of the forehead, in the eyebrow area – take up more and more space and “push” forwards.
This “pneumaticity” (the presence of air space within bones) creates a bone structure that tends to make even feminine faces look more masculine.
A rounded appearance in the eyebrow area can also be a characteristic found in young women.
Whatever the cause, a medical frontoplasty involves correcting this concavity by performing hyaluronic acid injections according to a precise technique that requires true medical aesthetics expertise.
These injections, which are performed into the centre of the forehead using the “filling and nappage technique with micro-cannulas”, allow us to recover the forehead’s convexity, which makes it look more feminine.
This technique is also useful for increasing the space between the frontal bone and the skin, and thus reducing the forehead’s mobility, which reduces horizonal forehead lines.
Most of the time, there are no after-effects such as bruising or swelling, but sometimes we might see minor, superficial skin irregularities, which are simply hyaluronic acid deposits and require the patient to massage the area at home in order to spread the filler products.
Medical frontoplasty is very good for modifying a patient’s profile (medical profiloplasty) by analysing the forehead’s position in relation to the chin (medical genioplasty) and the shape of the nose (medical rhinoplasty).
The fee charged for a frontoplasty with hyaluronic acid injections depends on the amounts that must be injected, according to the forehead in question, but generally 750 to 1,450 euros (2 to 4 millilitres).
