Dr. Alan Engler came highly recommended by my Dermatologist (Dr. Davis). Even though he was recommended I did my own research and found that he had excellent reviews. The procedure I had was to remove 7 lipomas. A lipoma is a growth of fat cells below the skin. It was very easy making the... READ MORE

I had had my lipoma about five years, but as it grew it became more and more noticeable and I began to feel more self-conscious about it, especially if I wore tighter clothes , so I decided to have it removed. In hindsight I probably should have had the operation sooner as the need for a... READ MORE

My lipoma is gone, but I can't believe it took me this long to do it. I had a lipoma on my right upper back that had been there for at least 15 years, and was slowly growing in size. one doctor told me that he'd have to make a big incision in order to get it out and since I didn't want that, I...

I was at Dr. Antell's for a large lipoma removal requiring at least 3 weeks post-op excuse duty. But 2 hours post-op I walked out confidently one street from his office to my hotel. 8 days post-op recovery was even most remarkable as I was cleared fit to jump on a flight to Africa to resume...

Dr Macias and the folks at Marina Plastic Surgery were great from the moment I checked in. The staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Macias visited and reviewed the procedure, and then removed a lipoma from my back near my spine. My fiance couldn't be more happy with the results and I'm... READ MORE

I saw Dr. Reish for a small procedure (lipoma removal) that felt very daunting to me. Rather than going to a dermatologist or general surgeon for the procedure, I went with Dr. Reish because of a glowing recommendation from a friend. (And Iā€™m so glad I did!) You can read his stellar c... READ MORE

Pea size lump removed from just below the jaw line. The technical precision of the surgical work left a scar so tiny and well aligned with the natural contours of my face that I have trouble finding it just 4 months later. I was so pleased with this result, I returned to Dr Cohen months later... READ MORE

I had three lipomas on my scalp for 20 years. I finally decided to have them removed. I went to Re-NOva Plastic Surgery in Wexford, PA. Dr. Clavijo removed all three of them for me right in the office. It was a painless procedure and no recovery time. Dr. Clavijo is an awesome doctor and really... READ MORE

I had a large fatty pocket on my back area and it has been bothering me for quite some time. Dr. Dahiya recommend to remove this lipoma surgically. He did a nice job since I can barely see the incision part -- no scar at all! During the surgery Dr. Dahiya numb me very well and I couldn't feel a... READ MORE

I discovered a small lipoma (size of my thumb nail) in 2001 at the front of my left shoulder. Over the past 14 years, I talked about it with two doctors (one in the beginning who diagnosed it as a lipoma and said it was no big deal, and then a few years later with another doctor, who said the...

5 years ago, a golf ball sized lipoma was removed from the back of my head. Unfortunately, the lipoma gradually grew back, ultimately (in 2015) starting to put pressure on nerves in my neck. Due to concerns about scar tissue from the previous operation, the original surgeon declined another... READ MORE

I had a lipoma on my upper arm that got bigger over time and left a large unattractive mass. Dr. Rechner was able to remove it, smooth out the arm and it now looks SO normal! I can wear tank tops again, at the age of 57! I lived with this for a long time and was bothered by it constantly. I... READ MORE

**Originally submitted this March 21; hopefully this second time around it would appear. The reviews on this forum assisted me and informed my decision in, eventually selecting Dr. Alan Engler as potential surgeon for excision of my lipoma; this was after hours of online research into several...

I had been aware of the lipoma since 2006, but it had grown to a point where my abdomen looked as if there were a golf ball protruding from it. I researched several doctors, but felt most comfortable with Dr. Codner and his staff. I felt that they were the most honest and thorough and I... READ MORE

I have a rare disease called Madelung's Disease, which causes bilateral lipomas (fat deposits in various areas). Because of this, I had very large fat deposits on both sides of my neck causing my appearance to change drastically. As the disease progressed, and my appearance was altered, I had... READ MORE

I have had a lipoma on my back for several years as well as back pain in the same area (unknown if related, but wanted lipoma removed to see if that was the cause). Dr. Janjua removed the ipoma from my back using liposuction. From our first meeting I knew I made the right decision going to him.... READ MORE

Both my Lipomas were the upper left side of my abdomen. I have pain when I bend over for more than a minute. My first was 8 cm by 8 and this last one was 4 cm by 5 cm. I have a huge problem after my last one a bit over a week ago with swelling in my abdomen. I thought I had gained 20 lbs... READ MORE
