Can The Bumps On My Forehead Be Treated By Sanding?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have something like a bump or protrusion in the forehead as a result of many bruises in the same place…the bone itself has a protruding part in the forehead.
I wanted to know if this could be treated by like sanding or something similar to remove the part that has a protrusion.
I read a lot and I saw videos and I think shaving it is the best option for me
I have attached pictures
A picture (drawing) to clarify the condition, the red line is what I should be like
the other pictures of me, but it is not really clear in the picture, you can notice the shadow underneath it.
I want to know whether it can be done, how, what complications may occur, and all the information about the operation, in addition to the fact that if part of the forehead is opened, I will reduce it a little as well, because I have a large forehead too.
A: You are referring to two very different forehead reduction procedures, both of which can be done together, bit with very different aesthetic tradeoffs.
If the shaving is done remotely using large skull rasps this is done through one or two very small halrline incisions of 5 t0 6mmd in size.
If a frontal hairline advancement is done this is carried out through a frontal hairline incision from side to side. Such an incision provides obvious unlimited access through which high speed burring of the lower forehead protrusions can be done.
