Why do Forehead Augmentation?
Others may think that having forehead augmentation is a rare cosmetic procedure, but in most people they understand that the forehead must be balance with the whole face. It is common for some Asians or even Caucasians have deep and hollow foreheads that give them the weird and old look. The face has three divisions, 1/3 for forehead, 1/3 for eyes and nose area and 1/3 for lips and chin area. These divisions have to be proportionate to each other to create a balance feature for the whole face as the total. This is the perfect beauty that everyone's after.
There are two techniques for forehead augmentation.

DRK surgeons can customized the silicon according to the patient’s facial structure to get the most natural and desired result. In case that the patient wants to add more volume, she/he can add some fat filler on areas appropriately.
