Lipoma Excision (Forehead) - Hollywood, CA

I just saw a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills for what I thought was a sebaceous cyst on my forehead. After examining it, he told me that it is actually a lipoma. The doctor used the word "tumor", which instantly brought to my mind the word "cancer" but its probably benign. I Don't have any Insurance and am planning on paying this out of pocket, which sucks. First Surgery Ever!

wish me luck.

Lipoma is actually just a fat deposit. Definition:A lipoma is a benign tumor composed of adipose tissue. tissue, or fatty tissue. Your surgery was cheap, cheap, cheap! It can cost up to $4,000 or more and the fact that he did it on your face ( forehead ) usually costs even more. Your doctor probably does a lot of more complicated plastic surgery and this was probably minor compared to what he usually does and no anesthesiologist was needed so just a local. Just an anesthesiologist costs $1000 to $2000. A.H.
