Not much to say, but I had been putting off this procedure for years. Part was fear of the process and part was not knowing a good surgeon. Dr Hazani took the time to answer my questions and explained the process. He's a friendly person, which is a plus. I think he did a great job. I felt little... READ MORE

This was a great experience. I had a slow growing firm lump under the skin on the upper back part of my thigh for over 13 years. It had become painful at times and Dr Patel initially said it was a lipoma and offered to schedule excision. On the day of the procedure there was no wait time and on... READ MORE

The staff was very helpful on home care and a call was made to me a day after surgery. Highly recommend Dr... READ MORE

About two years ago, I had noticed a large lump in my armpit. I had brought it to the attention of my trusted nurse practitioner and after a mammogram and an ultra sound, I had been assured that there was no reason to be alarmed with this lump – it did not pose a risk to my health. It... READ MORE

The reason I wanted to have the lipoma removed was mainly because there is a lot of cancer in my family and any lump was a worry to me, also I work out and take care of my body so having a lump on my arm sticking out was unsightly to say the least and I would not wear short sleeve shirts, not...

I was referred to Dr. Mountcastle by my personal doctor after a bad experience with another surgeon. I had a lipoma lump in my back close to my spine removed eight month earlier, only to have it begin to grow back within two months. So I scheduled the appointment with Dr Mountcastle, and from...

Mr Banwell performed a lipoma removal from my back on 26 November 2013 at the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead. I found him courteous, affable and a true professional. The process from beginning to end was seamless. After the operation I was lucky enough not to have to take any... READ MORE

Any doctor who tells you that you can go to work 1 day after from what I experienced from my surgery is smoking crack!!!! Sorry!!! I am 55, and this has been a very painful experience. Yesterday is the 1st day I felt 1/2 way decent, but not fully recovered yet. I sell furniture, and have a... READ MORE

I was extremely concern about the procedure. Dr. Gartside and her staff made me so comfortable about the procedure. I have had few other surgeries, but by far this was the best experience I had. The entire procedure and the Reston hospital staff were all great. I hope I would not have to go... READ MORE

Dr. BRUNO was awesome and made me feel very comfortable during my initial consultation. Surgery day I was very nervous, I even had my boyfriend come along. Dr. Bruno and his staff did an incredible job in removing the lipoma. I've been seeing him on a monthly basis to make sure that the scar is... READ MORE

You might think that a lipoma is a small thing, and that removing it is no big deal. I guess it is most of the time, but here’s a story about what can go wrong. I went to my dermatologist to have a small lipoma removed from my lower abdomen. It was about the size of a plum and seemed like... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Neinstein two weeks ago to get a Lipoma removed from my shoulder. Dr. Neinstein was very knowledgeable and he took his time to make me feel comfortable and explain the procedure to me. His bedside manner was excellent and he made me feel extremely comfortable about the procedure.... READ MORE

I had two hard lumps removed from above my knee as a precaution. They were tested but nothing sinister was detected. Two incisions were made and the lumps popped out, then the skin was sown together very nicely. There is hardly any scaring despite it being on the knee joint. Dr Lewis was... READ MORE

I had a intramuscular lipoma ,,about the size of a plum removed from my inside elow area. my first visit was to an orthopaedic surgeon that looked at it and said it was a lipoma and doesnt need to be removed..if I wanted it removed it would be considered cosmetic. He ordered an ultrasound and... READ MORE

Dr. Stephen Weber did a great job! I had a Lipoma just below my collar bone. It had been there for almost 20 years. When I first had it looked at 20 years ago they told me it was nothing to worry about. Well, there was one thing to worry about. The lipoma keeps growing slowly every year. ... READ MORE

My doctor told me that at first it was a sebaceous cyst and that it was not cancerous. So i told my doctor that it is ok to remove it. However; when he was doing the surgery in his clinic after he had opened up my head he realized that it was lipoma (build up tissue). So he had to put stitches... READ MORE

My motivation was to remove a lump on my shoulder that would have continued to grow as I got older. I could have chosen many others to complete my procedure, but am so happy that I went with Dr. Kim. She and her staff were kind, professional and they obviously communicate well with each other.... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Lowen to have a Lipoma removed from my forehead. After being turned around by multiple dermatologists Dr. Lowen agreed to do the surgery. Being that there is a nerve that ran at the angle where the Lipoma would be removed Dr. Lowen took extra care to remove this large knot on my... READ MORE
