Q:

I am interested in forehead contouring! I have two bumps slightly above my eyebrows. What kind of procedure would be needed to take care of this problem?

A:

The bumps you mention can be a variety of things which might require different treatments.

If the bumps are just off the central forehead above the brow, they are most likely prominent muscles.  If they are firm, they may be bony growths or prominences.  Soft tissue fullness may be fat or fatty tumors.

A browlift via an open or endoscopic approach would allow the diagnosis and treatment of many of these issues.  However, consultation with a plastic surgeon would allow evaluation of these masses and proper treatment planning.

Good luck.
