Can Just One Side Of The Brow Bone Be Reduced?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I think I do have the same case mentioned in this article. My brow bones did grow naturally but I think it has a trauma history that there was once a broken branch that hit my head near my eyebrow that caused that side to grow more. I’m wondering what could I possibly do.
A: I believe you are referring to a one-sided brow bone hypertrophy or protrusoin. This can be reduced using either a bone burring reduction or a bone flap setback technique depending on how thick the anterior wall of the frontal sinus is. But the first step is to get an x-ray to evaluate the frontal sinus development and the thickness of their anterior wall.
