Can My Forehead Horns Be Reduced?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m wondering if you can advise or assist with an enquiry regarding forehead bossing. My daughter has been to see a professor in Harley st London as she has forehead horns which we were hoping would be able to be bossed as unfortunately they are a little prominent. She had a CT scan and as a result of those findings the conclusion was as follows:

Professor said there is an inner table defect of the calvarium at the centre of the area of bossing on the left side. The bone has thickness of 2mm while most of the bony lump is the adequate thickness of bone

He therefore told us he was unable to proceed with any procedures.

We were wondering if you think there is any way that you could offer an opinion as to whether there are any other avenues or ways forward with regard to this.

A: In my experience most forehead horns can be reduced and I have never gotten a CT scan beforehand. But since  she has a scan it would be useful to see it to provide a more qualified opinion as to their reduction potential.
