Description

This 42-year-old woman was bothered by a small, soft bump at her central forehead.  Dr. Fishman removed it via a small surgical procedure, removing what turned out to be a lipoma (a benign fatty growth) through an incision in the patient’s hair-bearing scalp.  The patient’s procedure was carried out in the office, with the patient awake and relaxed with laughing gas.  She is shown 4 months after treatment.

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.
