The knot turned out to be a lipoma which is fatty tissue that grows between the skin and muscles. Dr. Wilson is a class act and knows what... READ MORE

Dr. Jemec removed a Lipoma from my cheek.

The lipoma was uncomfortable and interfered with my clothing. Dr. Capla and her team were excellent. I did not feel any pain during surgery, and it healed beautifully.

Having had the successful surgical removal of a lipoma (shoulder) and two minor cysts, I now completely understand why my dermatologist recommended Dr. Engler for my plastic surgery.

I've had a handful of lipomas in noticeable location for 20 years (arms and leg). The one on my upper leg was the size of a golf ball. Although I was told they were harmless, I couldn't wear short sleeve shirts or shorts without people noticing. You could even see the one on my leg through jeans. READ MORE

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
