Endoscopic resection of forehead osteomas.
Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2007 Jul; 45(5):392-5.BJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Endoscopic brow lift has become widely accepted as a procedure for restoring a youthful brow. Sometimes, a patient seeking a solution for rejuvenation of the upper third of the face may present other problems such as a forehead lesion. The authors describe their clinical experience in surgical endoscopic excision of forehead osteomas.

PATIENTS AND METHODS

In nine patients with a forehead osteoma, seeking for a solution in rejuvenating the upper third of the face, we performed a combination of endoscopic brow lift and endoscopic excision of the forehead osteoma. We also performed an endoscopic excision of a forehead osteoma in two patients that did not request any additional aesthetic face procedure.

RESULTS

No complication and no recurrence have been reported. The aesthetic result satisfied the patients.

CONCLUSIONS

Endoscopic resection of a forehead osteoma offers sufficient, effective and safe access for dissection and suspension of the tissues released. It offers a superbly hidden scar and is well appreciated by the patients.
