One thing to be considered carefully for plastic surgeons is that forehead region should be saved from the scar after benign tumor excisions. For this reason, scalp rather than face has recently been chosen as sites for incisions in an endoscopic tumor excision operation. During the 12 month period (from March 2006 to February 2007), four patients who had a benign tumor at forehead region were managed differently from other cases in terms that they have only single incision on their scalp from the endoscopic operation. The single incision site with an innate elasticity made a special role as a portal for a nasal speculum, which could hold a laparoscope and other apparatuses altogether by radius calibration. There was not a complication nor recurrence after operation. Nasal speculum-assisted single scalp incision method leads a minimal invasive surgery with maximal esthetic effect to endoscopic benign tumor excisions in forehead region.
