A 39-year-old woman with a forehead lesion (a lipoma, which is usually a benign, slow-growing fatty tumor) was treated with excision. Dr. Inessa Fishman performed the treatment using local anesthetic (or numbing medicine) and laughing gas in the office. The incision is hidden behind the patient’s hairline. The patient is shown 6 months after treatment.
