A 3D CT scan revealed a fracture of the frontal bone on the left side. Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji successfully performed the forehead defect reconstruction. Lid crease incision was placed over the left eye to avoid scar. Skin, subcutaneous tissue was tunneled through to reach the forehead defect. The forehead bone was drilled above the left eye & a bioresorbable endotine spike implant fixed to elevate the bone depression & raise the eyebrow to about 10 mm from the orbital rim. The pericranium was raised and the bone depression above the left eye towards midline was reconstructed with a rib graft.
Immediately after surgery, the man’s appearance improved greatly. The reconstructed defect & normally-positioned left eyebrow restored the facial symmetry and the man was very happy with the scarless correction.
