Description

This 47-year-old woman was bothered by a bump-like growth on her forehead.  She noticed this 6-7 years ago, and it had grown slowly over time.  Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with a minor surgical procedure in our office, removing the growth through an incision in her hair-bearing scalp for best scar camouflage.  The bump turned out to be a lipoma, or a benign, slow growing fat tumor.  The patient is shown 2 months after surgery, with great healing and an excellent treatment outcome.
