With the increasing popularity of cosmetic surgeries around the world, forehead augmentation used to be done by plastic surgeons. However in recent years, the development of medical aesthetics has made it possible to do forehead augmentation – non-surgically.
Many people especially Asians are obsessed with a sharper, defined nose and a pair of rounded cheeks. The forehead is an important facial feature that is often neglected.
Unaware to most people, a high and rounded forehead helps to give a good balance to the rest of your overall facial features. In 2006, Dr. Martin Gruendl, psychologist from the University of Regensburg did a study on what features people find attractive. An ideal face is one with a proportionally large head, large curved forehead, large eyes, rounded cheeks and defined chin.
The art of fengshui believes that a round, curved and protruding forehead represents power, wealth and authority. When the forehead is smooth, bright and clear, it symbolises great influence and power.
Who is a good candidate for forehead augmentation?
An ideal forehead should form about one-third of the face. The shape and height of a masculine forehead is usually more angular and higher. The male forehead is usually prominent and has a horizontal ridge of bone just above the eyebrow. On the other hand, a female forehead is usually shorter, rounder, and generally softer in appearance.
If it falls short of the ideal measurement of a ‘perfect’ forehead, you can consider consulting your doctor for treatment. Suitable candidates can also be people who feel that they are unhappy with their overall forehead’s shape, angle or slope. This will be obvious from the side profile.
What Non-Surgical Options Are There?
While dermal fillers may not be permanent or as dramatic as surgery, it is a better and safer choice for people who are unsure about undergoing surgery. As with all surgeries, there could be anaesthesia complications, extended downtime, and post-surgery infections. Furthermore, surgical options are often permanent. This means that there is a risk of poor surgical outcome that does not provide the desired results.

Ellanse Bio-Stimulating Filler
In recent years, a newer type of filler allows the treatment to last for up to 4 years. Ellanse bio-stimulating fillers is an innovative treatment that produces effective, long-lasting results. Unlike other dermal fillers, Ellanse is known for its long-lasting skin rejuvenation outcome with collagen stimulation. Ellanse works in two ways: It corrects the wrinkles and folds in the skin and it stimulates your body’s own collagen for a long-lasting result.
