Forehead Contouring

Q: Dr. Eppley,I am interested in forehead contouring.  I have a hard lump at the centre of my forehead for the past eight years now. it is not really big but it is noticeable. Please i need a surgery for this because I have been experiencing a hard time with my life with this forehead lump. I have attached some pictures from different angles so you can see my forehead lump.

A: Thank you for sending your forehead pictures. I can clearly see your central forehead lump. There are two ways to do your forehead contouring to get rid of this central lump. First the forehead lump could merely be burred down to the contour of the surrounding forehead. The other approach would be to build up the area around around the lump so the entire central forehead area is smooth. (fill in the two grooves on each side of the lump) Which way is best depends on how one prefers the shape of their forehead to be. The other consideration is the surgical access to do either one. Both could be done through a small incision at the edge of the frontal hairline. (irregular pretrichial incision) to blend in at the edge of the hairline.
