so far yanhee quoted me USD 1300 for a silicon implant for forehead. I asked Dr Pat during my recent surgery, and he said he does forehead augmentation using synthetic bone / bone cement. he said it wld prob require 2 pkts of bone cement, and each bag costs USD600. Not sure how much he charges for the op on top of that, have to get a quote from him.baybiblu wrote:Hi Takuda. Some time ago, I was looking into having forehead implants to have a more rounded and prominent forehead (something like what Dawn was rumored to have undergone) and was told by many doctors that each round of fat grafting would usually retain about 20-30% of fats (the rest would be reabsorbed by the body). This would result in quite a few rounds of grafting to get the desired permanent effect.takuda wrote:aadvark, was ur cheek and underchin lipo good? like is it just satisfactory(with an improvement) or is it like damn good? wad kind of lipo was it? laser/vaser/traditional?
and i also see tht ure interested in forehead augmentation. do share ur research with us..for a start, i shall begin..basically, we can use silicon, our own fat or medpor(which is more rare). Silicon, i guess everyone knows about the pros/cons, and also autologous fats. Apparently, i've asked dr pat about fat graft to forehead and his reply was ''he has done fat graft for 20 years but to forehead has been unsuccessful'' which is contrary to TW docs like dr chuang, who does fat graft to forehead successfully. he is also one of the few who does medpor if i'm not wrong. but for cost wise, dr chuang's fat graft is a bit steep. it's like you pay by no. of sessions(not a one time off thing) and it depends on whether you need to ''refill'' the fats ie dependent on how much has been absorbed..an implant on the other hand gives the results immediately and is a one time off thing..aadvark do share your research with us..am also interested..
The doctors suggested either using bone cement (not sure what this consists of) or using silicon implants to augment the forehead. However, I noticed that the bone cement costs more than double the costs for silicon forehead implants. Do you know why this is so? Do you know of the pros and cons of silicon forehead implants and bone cement for forehead augmentation?
I can't seem to find much information about this on the internet...
i dun want a rounded forehead like most women want tho, i want a flat forehead which most guys have. just want to lessen the slope
