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.

Highly regarded for his meticulous surgical skill, Dr. Maurice Khosh has extensive training and experience in facial reconstruction and aesthetics. When it comes to forehead osteoma removal, Dr. Khosh performs a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure that is straightforward and simple. If you are living with a forehead osteoma and are hoping to regain a balanced, beautiful face, contact our practice today to schedule your private consultation with Dr. Khosh.

Case Study

This 65 year old who had noted a progressively enlarging hard mass in the left upper forehead. The clinical examination finding was consistent with an osteoma. The osteoma was successfully removed as an office procedure utilizing local anesthesia. The incision was perfectly hidden inside the hairline above the location of the osteom. The incision was designed to allow hair growth through the scar, thereby camouflaging it.

Thus, it’s important to know—forehead osteoma removal is an outpatient procedure using an endoscopic technique that is minimally invasive.

While the location of the osteoma will determine the path of the incision, the endoscopic technique allows for swift removal of the osteoma (less than 30 minutes) with little recovery time needed.

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.

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.
