Forehead bone bump (confirmed not to be osteoma)

I have this bone bump on the right side of my forehead I want removed. I went to one surgeon here in my home town. We got a CT and it was determined it is just bone, how can it be removed?

Procedure: General Reconstruction
Location: minneapolis, MN

It can be removed by making a transverse incision in your forehead and either scraping it with a rongeur or a small chisel. You could be put to sleep for the procedure of have it done under local anesthesia which is what I would do for myself. Any ABPS certified or eligible surgeon should be able to do this. Visit some one close to your home.

Depending on the thickness of the skull bone, the bony prominent can be reduced partially. It is considered forehead contouring. Insurance may or may not covered. You should have a consultation with a local plastic surgeon.

Depending on the thickness of the skull bone, the bony prominent can be reduced by bone shaving or osteotomy. please kindly visit your surgeon for full examination and plan for the best treament option.
