• A rare but distressing complication of frontal embossment was managed after osteoplastic flap surgery. The technique is relatively simple and predictable, consisting of frontal bone autografts, bone paté, and Silastic sheeting. This technique may have potential application to other posttraumatic defects that require frontal contour restoration.
