Frontal bossing is a medical term used to describe a prominent, protruding forehead, which can occur in both men and women. It is characterized by a ridge of bone around the upper eye sockets and a sloping angle of the forehead.
Dr. MacPhee performs a surgical procedure called forehead contouring, which involves shaving and surgically reshaping the bones. This procedure can be performed in women with frontal bossing who desire a softer, more feminine facial structure. It is also appropriate for transgender patients who are transitioning from male to female.
