Patient Info

Dr. Inessa Fishman


This 46-year-old man was bothered by a bump-like growth at his right forehead.  He had had a previous biopsy of this elsewhere, but the bump remained.  Dr. Fishman removed the bump–which turned out to be a lipoma or a benign growth of fat–using the patient’s previous scar within a forehead wrinkle.  He is shown 5 months after treatment, with great healing progress and an excellent outcome.  His scar is essentially invisible, and the bump is gone.

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.
