Forehead Osteoma Removal

Relatively common, hard knots on the forehead are often a result of benign bony growths—osteomas. Forehead osteomas may be present at birth, or they may develop over time, and are most frequently seen between the hairline and eyebrows. Though they may cause pain, most will agree that the biggest concern is their unsightly appearance. Interestingly, many are unaware that forehead osteoma removal can be a straightforward, simple in-office eye and brow procedure.

Typically, the approach to osteoma removal involves making a small buttonhole incision along the face—at the hairline and scalp. Since the majority of benign osteomas incorporate only the outer portion of the skull, there’s no need for a deeper perforation. However, a CT scan may be performed initially to ensure that the bony lesion is not connected to other structures.

As a world-class facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong has extensive experience and training in a full range of facial plastic surgeries, including forehead osteoma removal. Dr. Stong’s high regard for patient satisfaction and care means that your concerns will always be acknowledged and addressed. Are you living with a forehead osteoma? Call Kalos Plastic Surgery Center today to speak with one of our specialists. We look forward to meeting you.

Minimally Invasive (Endoscopic Treatment)

Using a minimally invasive endoscopic technique, the removal of a forehead osteoma usually takes 30 minutes or less, and recovery is minor. While anesthesia needed is light, some may request IV sedation. In turn, the location of the osteoma will determine the path of the incision. While most would prefer that the incision be hidden within the hairline, there are some instances that require the incision to be directly over the lesion.

With advanced skill, Dr. Stong performs minimally invasive endoscopic treatments for osteomas with precision, combining science with artistry as he corrects and restores a natural look to the face. He understands that the forehead is a major contributor to the overall aesthetics of the face.

If you are considering forehead osteoma removal, contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today for your consultation with Dr. Stong. Dr. Stong’s contemporary techniques and methods reveal his ability to perform osteoma removal with ease, with minimal downtime and scarring.

Dr. Stong did an amazing job. I had an eyebrow lift, eyelids, face and neck lift. It’s only been 3.5 weeks and I am thrilled with the new me already! He is highly qualified and I recommend him without hesitation. He and his office staff are professional, available and eager to make your experience a positive one.

I have been interested in getting filler for my lips for a long time but was always too scared to take the leap for fear they wouldn’t look natural. After a lot of research, I decided to trust Dr. Stong with the procedure. Everyone at the office is so nice and helpful and the environment is incredibly inviting. Dr. Stong listened to what I wanted and answered all of my questions. I didn’t feel rushed or that I was taking up too much of his time. He walked me through the procedure and after the initial numbing, it was over in five minutes. The results are completely natural looking and I am in love with how my lips look for the first time ever. Because I trusted him so much, I also decided to have him perform a liquid rhinoplasty during the follow up appointment for my lips. Despite not having an appointment for the rhinoplasty, he was very accommodating and went ahead with the procedure. He talked me through what he was going to do and also stopped halfway through the procedure to make sure I liked the results. Just like I expected, the results are amazing. My nose looks just how I imagined it should look and I love it just as much as my lips. You cannot go wrong choosing Dr. Stong.

I've gotten my lips done with Dr. Stong a few times and recently got a cosmetic rhinoplasty. I am two weeks post op, and even with the minor swelling left over, my nose already looks so much better than before!! I am so in love with my new nose and would recommend Dr. Stong if you want a luxury experience and an easy pain free recovery. His staff is so attentive and professional as well, and make visiting the office a pleasure every time. I strongly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone looking for quality work in the metro-Atlanta area. Amazing job. Thank you all so much!


I did a lot of research on facial plastic surgeons in Atlanta, specifically surgeons specialized in revision rhinoplasty, and decided Dr. Stong was the only surgeon I needed to schedule a consultation with due to his impressive credentials, years of experience and amazing results. After my first consultation with Dr. Stong, I knew right away I had found my plastic surgeon and felt confident that he would help me obtain the results I desired. My entire experience with Dr. Stong and his staff has been incredible from my first appointment to post-op. He walked me through the whole recovery and healing process after a revision rhinoplasty and was very honest about swelling, pain and the operation itself. One thing I really appreciate in Dr. Stong is his honesty. It was so easy to work with him and I never left my consultations in doubt of his work or his technique. His attentiveness combined with his expertise assured me that I was in good hands. I can’t thank Dr. Stong and his staff enough for their kindness and support throughout my rhinoplasty journey! I am thrilled with the results, and know I would not be able to obtain them elsewhere.


I saw Dr. Stong for the first time recently and was extremely happy with the results of my botox. In the past, I’ve always experienced hooding in my eye after my botox injection. Dr. Stong explained the reason for the hooding and injected botox under my brow to prevent this from happening. It worked beautifully! No other doctor has offered this solution. I also liked how Dr. Stong took his time to explain different treatments during my consultation and never felt rushed. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Stong!
