- Relating to the region of the forehead and orbit.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Lower fronto-orbital bristles: in Diptera: are on the lower part of front, above the antennae, along the orbit.
All I could do was replay the horrible string of words the doctors all used when talking about the surgery: fronto-orbital advancement… cranial vault remodeling… three blood transfusions… must be type O negative… a complicated surgery that could last up to eleven hours… delicate… the skull needs to be opened from ear to ear… there is the risk of brain damage… they have to reshape the bones, reinstall them, and then sew him back up.
