A patient with frontal sinus hypertrophy complained about an bossing in eyebrow region, increased width of the upper nasal pyramid, inferior displacement of the eyebrow and deep furrows in his forehead, etc. This case report illustrated a method of correction for frontal sinus hypertrophy. Surgery was performed via the bicoronal incision. After the anterior wall of the frontal sinus was removed, we tried a frontal bone remodeling by dividing it into three pieces, trimmming each piece at the margin and fixed with microplate. Bilateral thick bony portions around the frontal sinus were shaved with a surgical burr. At the same time, a 1cm-forehead lift and frontal muscle partial resection was performed. A satisfactory aesthetic result with a smooth and wide forehead could be obtained by employing this technique.
