Description

This 24-year-old woman with a slowly-growing forehead lesion (a lipoma, which is usually a benign, slow-growing fatty tumor) was treated with surgical excision. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman performed the patient’s procedure with the help of local anesthetic (injectable numbing medicine) and laughing gas in the office. The patient’s incision is hidden behind her hairline. She is shown 3 months after treatment.
