Will this lipoma leave an ugly scar if surgically removed?
Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. Unfortunately the bump appears to be a scar more than a lipoma. In either case removal would necessitate the creation of a horizontal linear scar whose appearance can be minimized with appropriate surgical technique and adjunct skin care. Hope this helps.
Treatment of bump on forehead
You would need an examination to determine what the lump might be on your forehead. Most likely, it could be removed surgically although there would be a scar. In most cases, the scar that would form would be less noticeable than the lump.
It will leave a scar. How ugly depends on your genetics. Width, depression, thickness, color vary with every patient. Hyper (darker) or hypo (lighter) pigmentation may occur. If you have a history of keloids (thick rubbery scars that exceed the original size of the wound), beware.
Lipoma can be removed from the forehead without any significant scarring. The incision line has to be placed horizontally along the naturally occurring crease and that will solve the problem. New
