Resection of benign tumors of the forehead and brow raises aesthetic concerns. An endoscopic subperiosteal approach to benign bony and soft-tissue tumors in the supraorbital and frontotemporal regions permits extirpation of these masses without producing visible facial scars. Therefore, this technique was used for tumor resection in 4 patients. This procedure demonstrated magnified visualization of the masses, and safe access for excisional biopsy and bony contouring. In addition to more acceptable surgical scars, patients experienced no significant postoperative morbidity and a reduced incidence of swelling, discomfort, and scalp anesthesia. Therefore, we conclude that the endoscopic subperiosteal approach is a favorable alternative for resection of suitable tumors.
