I had two hard lumps removed from above my knee as a precaution. They were tested but nothing sinister was detected. Two incisions were made and the lumps popped out, then the skin was sown together very nicely. There is hardly any scaring despite it being on the knee joint. Dr Lewis was... READ MORE

I had a intramuscular lipoma ,,about the size of a plum removed from my inside elow area. my first visit was to an orthopaedic surgeon that looked at it and said it was a lipoma and doesnt need to be removed..if I wanted it removed it would be considered cosmetic. He ordered an ultrasound and... READ MORE

Dr. Stephen Weber did a great job! I had a Lipoma just below my collar bone. It had been there for almost 20 years. When I first had it looked at 20 years ago they told me it was nothing to worry about. Well, there was one thing to worry about. The lipoma keeps growing slowly every year. ... READ MORE

My doctor told me that at first it was a sebaceous cyst and that it was not cancerous. So i told my doctor that it is ok to remove it. However; when he was doing the surgery in his clinic after he had opened up my head he realized that it was lipoma (build up tissue). So he had to put stitches... READ MORE

My motivation was to remove a lump on my shoulder that would have continued to grow as I got older. I could have chosen many others to complete my procedure, but am so happy that I went with Dr. Kim. She and her staff were kind, professional and they obviously communicate well with each other.... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Lowen to have a Lipoma removed from my forehead. After being turned around by multiple dermatologists Dr. Lowen agreed to do the surgery. Being that there is a nerve that ran at the angle where the Lipoma would be removed Dr. Lowen took extra care to remove this large knot on my... READ MORE

Dr. Antell removed my very large lipoma on July 24, 2013. From the consultation to the post-surgical follow-up, Dr. Antell was the consummate, knowledgeable professional. He answered every question I had with compassion and wisdom. Dr. Antell skillfully removed the lipoma that was painful and... READ MORE

I had a small (ping pong ball size) lipoma in the middle of my back for about six years. It was always bothersome and annoying, but I just recently decided to do something about it. I guess I'd just had enough. Because it was near my spine, my doctor wasn't comfortable trying to remove it in... READ MORE

First off I want to say I was a little nervous going into a Dr. Galante's office being a male for a surgical procedure. I had a cyst under my right breast, almost directly under the areola, that caused some pain and also made the area look 'puffy' or inflamed. This was a nuisance as I am a... READ MORE

I had a lipoma removed from my forehead. I had this lipoma for over 13 years and i went to a general surgeon who didnt care about my face or scarring. I original went to Dr. Okoro for fat transfer and butt lift consult and i decided to ask him about my Lipoma. Dr. Okoro addressed my concerns... READ MORE

Had a lipoma removed from my neck by Dr. Mountcastle. The entire procedure took less than 30 minutes and was painless. The worst discomfort was the injection of the local anesthetic, and that was just a slight stinging. If you are a self-pay patient they have some really fantastic rates. I... READ MORE

Doc Miller is great . Explains everything. My scar is un noticeable and I had no pain . In office removal of lump near shoulder .Which I had for about 5 years. He followed up several times after the procedure . He does other procedures so I will return to him before any other plastic surgeon... READ MORE

I have been going to Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian for a few years now. I had a rare skin/cyst condition that was hard to figure out. Dr. Karamanoukian was able to accurately diagnose the problem and treat my condition with great care. He is the ONLY doctor who has been able to properly treat me... READ MORE

Dr. O'Brien removed a lipoma on my back next to the shoulder blade last year. He used local anesthesia only and it took about an hour for the surgery itself. The scar that I have is about 2 inches long and is fading more and more. I am pleased with the results and the cost with insurance.... READ MORE

Dr. Lowen did a great job of removing five small lipomas from my arms with truly minimal scarring, full removal, and complete recovery. He uses a liposuction technique that allows to make a smaller incision than the traditional technique, in addition he can move the incision point to... READ MORE

Dr Kim is a very confident doctor and a great person. She looked at the spot on my back and very accurately told me what the problem was (under my skin was a cyst/lipoma) and would be easily removed with a 30 minute procedure leaving a small scar. My babysitter cancelled, so I did the consult... READ MORE


Had some small lipomas on both arms. I wasn't sure that they were worth removing. I decided to have them removed by Dr. Lowen because he basically melts the lipoma, rather than cutting it out, so the incision scar is much much smaller. He was very conscientious about making sure he removed all... READ MORE

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
