See Osteoma Removal Before & After Gallery

Painless lumps or bumps on the forehead are often caused by osteomas, a bony, benign growth on the skull. Osteomas can grow anywhere on the skull but are most commonly on the forehead or brow. While osteomas rarely cause pain and are not a health risk, they can be a cosmetic concern. At Maia Plastic Surgery, Dr. Munique Maia can perform osteoma removal surgery at our medical center in Tysons Corner, VA.

Osteomas are created by abnormal cells that replace normal bone cells and multiply faster than normal. This type of tumor turns into a bony growth that can cause a raised, bony bump under the skin. Osteomas are usually less than a centimeter in diameter, but the height can vary. The appearance of an osteoma can be a distraction from other facial features, which is why many people with these growths choose to have elective cosmetic surgery to have them removed.

Minimally-Invasive Osteoma Treatment

In many cases, forehead osteomas can be removed with a minimally-invasive procedure using an endoscope and small incision located in the hairline. The bony growth can be carefully removed under the skin using specialized tools and an endoscope to view the procedure. Once the growth is removed and the bone is smoothed, the skin and tissue will flatten with no visible marks at the area. The incision and scar are often hidden in the hairline or another inconspicuous area. The recovery is quick with very little downtime needed for most patients.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
