Endoscopic Forehead Osteoma and Forehead Lipoma Excision

Forehead osteoma and lipoma excision

The Surgery

A skilled cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Paul is able to improve the appearance of the forehead by the removal of frontal bone osteomas and lipomas.  In some cases, Dr. Paul is able to use an endoscope to assist in surgery and can create entry ports for the endoscopy within the hair helping to conceal the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Paul will determine the best plan to help you.

A major part of the face, the forehead occupies nearly one-third of the total surface area and is a major contributor to the overall aesthetics of the face. If the forehead is marked by a noticeable ridge or bump on the skull above the eyes or on the side of the forehead, an osteoma, lipoma, or a different lesion may be present. Dr. Paul is a master of the endoscopic approach to remove osteomas to smooth the forehead for a more attractive look and feel. Endoscopic osteoma removal involves the removal of excess osteocytes or bone cells. Lipoma removal involves the removal of excess lipocytes or fat cells. Lipomas are more often removed through a direct (“open sky”) approach.  During your consultation, Dr. Paul will discuss you situation and the best approach to treatment.

Procedure Details

Under local and/or general anesthesia, Dr. Paul performs minimally invasive endoscopic excision of masses directly through the hair-bearing scalp to minimize any telltale signs of surgery. Alternatively, Dr. Paul may make an incision above the lesion to directly approach lesion. The best approach will be determined during your consultation. Regardless of approach, the procedure is notable for its rapid recovery and natural result.

Dr. Paul is AMAZING. He was very thorough and knowledgeable when it came down to my procedure for cyst removal. I had spoken to many different specialists in hopes to having this cyst removed from my forehead however he was the only one who made me feel comfortable and safe. The surgery went extremely well. He made sure that I understood what the procedure process and was available for me when I had any question pre or post surgery. The whole staff was awesome as well especially Sarah and Mike. I wish this was my primary care office rather than plastic surgeon lol. I would definitely recommed Dr. Paul !
