I have a 3cm Lipoma on left area of my forehehead. What are the results of having it removed? How big would the scar be from surgery, if I have it removed?
Forehead lipomas and planning incisions
Lipoma removal can be performed on an outpatient basis using small incisions that can minimize scarring. I would recommend a linear incision that is parallel to a wrinkle line or fold to minimize scarring. Surgery90210
Scars from forehead lipoma removal
The scar from removing a forehead lipoma should be acceptable if done by a plastic surgeon. Either an incision going horizontally directly over the lipoma in a forehead wrinkle, or an incision along the hairline, or even an endoscopic approach from behind the hairline can be employed with a nice outcome. It depends on where the lipoma is located which would be best.
