Dr. Inessa Fishman

Description

This 38-year-old gentleman was bothered by the appearance of a large bump on his forehead, which was painless and had been slowly growing over several years.  Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman removed this growth, which turned out to be a lipoma, through a small incision in the patient’s scalp.  He is shown 5 months after surgery, with a great result and excellent healing progress, and with his incision hidden by hair.

This patient’s surgery was performed in our office, with the help of by-mouth relaxing medications and laughing gas.  Lipomas are benign, or non-cancerous fat growths, which typically grow slowly for years and are usually painless.
