Osteoma Removal

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon

An osteoma is a benign head tumor that is comprised of dense bone. Typically, they are located on the skull or forehead and protrude from the skin and look like a knot. Commonly, osteomas appear on the forehead between the hairline and the eyebrows. Osteomas grow very slowly and usually cause no pain or problems. There is no known cause of osteoma formation; they are often present at birth or can develop over many years.

You don’t have to live with an osteoma. For cosmetic reasons, many people elect to have an osteoma removed. Once a CT scan validates that the osteoma does not extend past the outer region of the skull, an endoscopic treatment plan will be customized according to the size and location of the tumor. The procedure is minimally invasive and is performed right in Dr. Khosh’s office in New York City.

To remove an osteoma, Dr. Khosh will determine the best method of excision for each person’s unique condition. Typically, forehead osteomas involve making a buttonhole incision at the hairline or in the scalp. Local or light anesthesia are available to make the procedure completely comfortable. Using endoscopic expertise, the bone is contoured without requiring deep perforation. With this approach, visible scarring is minimized.

Dr. Khosh is extensively trained and experienced in the removal of osteomas. He provides the highest quality facial plastic surgery care. Using skill and precision, he will carefully remove your osteoma tumor, smooth the forehead skin, and restore your facial appearance and confidence. The procedure is quick and there is little to no recovery time. Swelling is minimal if any occurs at all. After the minor surgery, people who have an osteoma removed can immediately resume normal activities.

Are you considering having an osteoma removed? Dr. Khosh is renowned for his superior surgical artistry and personal care. To learn more about osteoma removal with excellent results, contact our office to schedule your custom consultation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
