I had a lipoma on my my forehead which I first tried to have my dermatologist remove. She told me it was a routine outpatient procedure, until she cut into my skin and could only remove a small portion of it. It ended up being transmuscular - meaning the majority of it lay underneath the muscles in my forehead. Although it was a complete disaster for me, she charged me full price as if she... more
Over the last 25 years, I have developed this condition where my body has been producing Lipomas which are benign fat deposits that show up on different parts of my body. They are usually 2" on average below my skin. In some cases they will grow and rest on some of my nerve endings in my body. This is extremely uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the doctors do not know what causes them or how to... more
Dr. Engler immediately made me feel comfortable.
I'd put off dealing with the lipoma in my right shoulder for almost ten years, but it had grown to the size of a tennis ball (they always get worse!) and I finally had to do something about it. I shopped a few other doctors, and even had a consultation with one, but was shocked by how expensive the procedure was. That's when I found Dr. Engler,... 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 interfered with daily activities. The procedure was in office and I was able to resume activities... more
I had to get a sizeable lipoma removed from the front of my arm and was on the lookout for the right doctor. Given that I'm very prone to keloids, I knew I wanted to go to a plastic surgeon who could perform minimally invasive surgery since I didn't want a bad scar. The surgery was painless and not as scary as I thought it would be. Even during surgery, Dr. Engler and his assistant went out of... 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 more expensive, it was close to painless and totally worth it. I was back to work the following... more
Well, I just had a lipoma removed from my inner thigh. I really should have done this sooner. It was 11" long by 6" wide and 4" deep, and was compressing my muscle. I did have general anastesia and needed to stay over night due to pain. At this time I still have a drain in my leg. I was thinking of not having it done because it really wasnt that painful, but was worried about it... more
