It was revealed at the beginning of this summer that Netherland’s National Museum of Antiquities posed a 3-D image of the ‘real life’ Julius Caesar that would show he had a large bulge on his forehead. The Netherlands historical research team had refinished imagery of Julius Caesar based on his worn Tusculum sculpture. In modern day, what would Julius Caesar have done with that skeletal bulge on his forehead? He most-likely would have removed it.
Bone-like bulges that grow on or around the forehead are known as osteomas. They’re typically caused by minor forehead traumas and grow gradually over time. Though osteomas are classified as harmless, benign bone growth, they do present a displeasing appearance for people who have them. Surprisingly, osteomas can be removed! Dr. Shah has a perfected techniques with osteoma removal procedures, which is both minimally-invasive and aesthetically-conservative. His approach is usually performed in his office with minimal numbing anaesthetics and reduced incision lines, which overall results in little recovery and downtime. Even Julius Caesar, being the busy military general he is, would have approved.
