Forehead Osteoma Removal

Relatively common, Osteomas are benign, bony growths that often form as hard knobs on the forehead. Most frequently noted between the hairline and the eyebrow region of the forehead, they are typically asymptomatic, though some report facial pain and headaches. Even so, the most common concern is their unsightly appearance.

Forehead osteoma removal usually involves a classic approach, which includes making a buttonhole incision at the hairline or near the scalp. An endoscopic technique is used to contour the bone. This method does not usually require a deep perforation, because the majority of osteomas on the forehead only incorporate the outer portion of the skull. In turn, this helps prevent any visible scarring or disruption of the hairline.
