Osteoma Removal

The appearance of a hard lump on the forehead may be a sign of an osteoma. These bony tumors are usually benign, and most do not cause discomfort. However, they do not go away on their own and they can become an aesthetic concern. Many people with osteomas prefer to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. At pēkomd® plastic surgery center, we offer surgical osteoma removal at our facility in Toledo, OH.

The exact cause of osteomas is not known, but they rarely cause any medical problems. While some patients report discomfort from their growths, the most common concern is their appearance. While osteomas can appear on other long bones on the body, they often sprout from the skull in the forehead area. While they grow very slowly, over the years they can become very noticeable. In some cases, they may impact wearing a hat or other headgear, depending on the location of the osteoma.

Osteoma Plastic Surgery

Osteoma removal is a cosmetic, elective procedure in most cases. To remove the bony growth, a small incision is made in the skin, and a device is used to carefully remove the layers of the lump. In many cases, osteoma surgery can be performed using endoscopic techniques. The incisions can be made behind the hairline to hide the scars, and an endoscope can be used to view the osteoma. Small endoscopic instruments are used to scrape away the bony growth without requiring an incision on the forehead.

In most cases, osteoma removal can be performed under local anesthesia for a safer experience for the patient. Recovery and downtime are minimal – most patients are able to return to most normal activities in a day or two. With endoscopic osteoma removal, the incisions are very small and well hidden on the scalp behind the hairline.

Teresa S.

My experience with Dr Koltz @ pekomd® was wonderful. He is by far the most down to earth Dr I have ever met and has an eye for details. After hearing about him through someone I follow on IG I made an appt for a consultation. After explaining how I was hoping an abdominal repair may help my lower back issues I had from carrying my kids 30 yrs ago. We discussed some other body things I was unhappy with. Because at that point I figured if I'm going to go under the knife for a tummy repair, I might as well check off a few other things as well. I mean for me this was a once in a lifetime thing and I planned to make the most of it. Dr Koltz was so knowledgeable and quick to tell me where I'd get more bang for my buck. Even recommended a thing or 2. He is truly a talented Dr and so very personable, makes you feel comfortable from the 1st day and wants you to look and feel your best. I would say if you’re on the fence about a surgery to change your body, he is definitely the Dr you should see first. His staff will make you feel comfortable from the first appt and answer all your questions. I'm also a longer distance customer, so 5 hrs round trip and I was always so impressed at how easily they worked with me to accommodate my appts . Truly the best place!
