Osteoma (Bony Forehead Bump/Lump) Removal
Conveniently located to serve Dallas and Plano, TX
Dr. Lam specializes in removal of osteomas, which are hard bony lumps, that occur typically on the forehead, and which may slowly grow in size over time. They are typically benign tumors that can be easily removed by an expert. Dr. Lam prepares the patient ideally with Botox in the forehead muscles to minimize stretchback (scarring) of the incision after surgery. He ideally would inject the Botox a day before the procedure for out-of-town patients or 1-2 weeks prior for in-town patients.
On the day of the procedure for osteoma removal, he uses gentle intravenous (IV) sedation at his on-site surgery center so that you are comfortable and feel no pain. He makes the incision typically along the hairline using a trichophytic incision (meaning he makes the incision so that the hairs grow back through the incision to camouflage the scar). Then, using specialized instruments, he is able to cleave the osteoma free from the forehead bone in a non-traumatic fashion. He carefully sculpts any remaining uneven edges before finishing the procedure. He closes the incision in multiple layers all with dissolvable sutures. He has found that these sutures heal the best. He will then inject a small amount of Botox into the incision for further improved healing of the incision. You are able to fly back home if you are from out of town the day after the procedure. No follow up beyond that is needed if you are from out of town.
