About Lipomas & Osteomas Procedures
Lipomas, osteomas, and various other “bumps” on the scalp, face, and neck are common concerns among patients who come to our practice. A lipoma is a benign (non-cancerous) fatty growth which may appear on various parts of the body, face and scalp; while an osteoma is a growth of bone which can form on the forehead or skull. Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly treats lipomas and osteomas as well as a variety of other bumps and cysts on the face and neck.
