I started working out mid 2013 and discovered a lipoma near my bra strap area (side). I have a relatively nice back so I didnt want to be embarrassed by a "lump". I called a few doctor's but Tahir was by far the nicest, customer service wise. The procedure took about 45 minutes since mine lipoma... READ MORE

Was well worth the surgery to remove this lipoma which was painful while sleeping on side and causing pressure on spine causing a lot of low back pain. Surgery was on December 10, 2012. Hospital stay overnight to control pain. Relatively speaking the surgery wasn't the cause of pain afterwards... READ MORE

ENT cancer surgeon said I shouldn't get lipoma from neck removed as it may cause more harm than good. It grew and now two yrs later I went back and it had grown to the size of a tennis ball. Week later it's out and they also took out an enlarged lymph node, Initial biopsy negative,... READ MORE

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... READ 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.... READ MORE

I have very painful lipomas. Sometimes they have been called Vascular Lipomatosis or Angio-Lipomas. I have had hundreds (yes that's correct) removed surgically. I have been doing it over 20 years. The first Lipoma was taken out in 1983. I think I've had close to 800 take out now. My... READ MORE

Mine sat on my forearm and sat on a nerve causing me pain down my arm into my fingers. I was so scared when they told me what it was and that I had to have it removed. Wow was i shocked it was super easy and took like 20 min from start to finish. It was the best thing I could have ever did. I... READ MORE

I was in pain prior to the lipoma. So, yes it was very worth it, but I want to know when I am going to be better...I had a lump in my hair for several months; however, it did not give me problems until recently. I started having migraines with the pain orginating from the lump's location. I went... READ MORE

I had a good sized lipoma removed from my back. I had for over 5 years thinking little about it, but it started to bother me. I was referred by my doctor to a surgeon. It was done in a hospital as an out-patient surgery. They put me totally under and I remember very little, and had almost no... READ MORE

I originally had a small lump in my lip which was hardly noticeable but was annoying as would swell up in the cold. I went to my local hospital to have it checked out. They said they could remove the lump surgically.In the first operation they did not get the lump so I had to have a second... READ MORE

I get these on my arms and legs. They do not hurt but look ugly, especially as they grow larger. Getting them cut out was simple. My Dr injected me with local pain killer and they were cut out within 5 minutes for each one. It was so simple, I wished that I'd done it years ago. I've added... READ MORE

Definitely recommended to get lipoma removed. No side effects or not harmful. Very simple surgery. Not too painful just little bit. Recovery is also pretty quick. It's more of an cosmetic surgery so not to worry about any cons. Just make sure don't smoke before and after for faster recovery. In... READ MORE

After many years of living with this large mass in my back and neck, I finally went to have a consultation. After speaking with Dr John O'Brien, Jr and seeing the facility, I felt comfortable having him perform the surgery. The staff was very friendly and everything went as planned. The... READ MORE

I went in for the removal of a large lipoma in the middle of my back. I was very nervous because I've never had any type of surgery before and my first experience couldn't have gone better. I was in and out of the operating room and didn't feel a thing. I had very minimal pain/discomfort during... READ MORE

I stubbled upon Dr. Engler and his team on the internet and was instantly impressed by his perfect reviews, which happened to be completely accurate.I called them up and scheduled an appointment so he could examine my lipoma. I got the outmost attention since day one and I never felt that they... READ MORE

A lipoma is pretty much similar to a cyst. It's benign, albeit, samples must be sent to pathology. In my case this lipoma was on the back of my head, at the neck line. I could not see it. So from that perspective, I had no clue what it was. My girlfriend noticed it and took a cell picture to... READ MORE

Lipoma Removal – Great plastic surgeon. I had a lipoma on my right arm for several years, probably more than I want to admit to. It just kept growing in size. One doctor told me he could remove it but it would leave me with a big scar across my elbow so I didn’t want that. I started wea... READ MORE
