I had a raised lipoma on the side of my arm. I finally got sick and tired of people asking about it so I talked my family Dr. into a referral. I had it removed and I am so happy I did, The scar is practically invisible. I have several more and don't understand why the Dr's think leaving them in... READ MORE

I had a large lipoma removed from just below a shoulder blade. It was growing rapidly, and was actually big enough to cause discomfort. My MD referred me to a surgeon who scheduled an out-patient surgery in a hospital. I was shocked when I discovered the hospital (JUST the hospital, not the... READ MORE

I met with Dr. Khorasani and he told me the options for my large 8cm x 10cm lipoma on my upper left back (bra area) was either an incision or liposuction. Since I am in my twenties and did not want the large scar on my back (the back scars easily) I opted for the liposuction option. While much... READ MORE

About 12 years ago I developed a lipoma on left side of my forehead after bumping my forehead. I went to a plastic surgeon who had me get an MRI prior to removal. He surgically removed it in the hospital as an outpatient. Approx 5 years later it reappeared - went to same dr who this time removed... READ MORE

I had just gone to have a lipoma removed from the top of my head, so far the healing process seems to be going good. They had to make a pretty large cut to get it out, I do still feel slight pain but its nothing like the pain the lipoma was causing prior to the surgery. On Tuesday... READ MORE

Thought I was just going on for a consult when the Doctor told me he could remove it right there in about 15 minutes. I said go for it. I've had a grape sized lump on my temple for almost 2 years so it seemed worth it. Its only been 3 days so I cannot say how it will turn out (scar vs no scar)... READ MORE

I have a lump on my forehead. Plastic surgeon is going to remove it but states its deep in the muscle. I am so scared I will have a concave dent and awful scar in my head. I hope to come out of this without disfigurement and be glad I did it. Right now I am terrified. Hopefully I won't cancel... READ MORE

Dr. Lowen does amazing work! I had a very noticeable lipoma on my upper back that I wanted removed before my wedding. I am from out of town, and Dr. Lowen's front office staff was so accommodating and was able to move appointments around to schedule my procedure for the day after my... READ MORE

I did not want to have that tumor on my shoulder for one more summer. It made me self conscious. I had a lipoma removal in Dr Horndeski's office under local anesthesia. Everything was fine. I was very pleased with the procedure and the results. READ MORE

I went to Dr. Lowen to remove multiple lipomas from my arms.  I was looking for a method to remove these lipomas without the scarring and pain that comes with traditional surgery.  Dr. Lowen was able to remove 26 lipomas with minimal scars.  He used the SmartLipo laser to... READ MORE

It was difficult to decide to risk removing a lipoma that sat so close to the nerves in my jaw and sat over my jugular vein. But it was all I could see when I looked in the mirror and fiddling with it daily, I began to have a constant loathing of it. I talked with several doctors and none felt... READ MORE

I had a lipoma on my inner thigh for several years. I never thought much about it til I noticed it was growing. I made the choice to have it removed & I'm so glad I did. READ MORE

I had a lipoma removed from my right arm pit. I was experiencing a lot of pain and was referred to Dr. C from my general practitioner. The size of the lipoma made it protrude from under my arm pit and it was visible whenever I would wear sleeveless tops. Pain was certainly a motivator for me... READ MORE
