Description

This 45-year-old woman was bothered by the appearance of the bump at the center of her forehead, and reported the bump had grown slowly over the last 8 years.  Dr. Inessa Fishman diagnosed her with an osteoma and removed this growth, hiding the scar within the patient’s hair.  The patient is shown 2 months after treatment, with excellent healing progress.  The treatment was performed in our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with medications and laughing gas.

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.
