- 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.
