Complications after lipoma removal on forehead

It is a bit difficult to give you advice without knowing exactly when the surgery to remove the lipoma on your forehead occurred and without examining you.  I would recommend contacting your surgeon to let them know about your concern and see if you can be seen earlier than your scheduled appointment later in the week.

Post lipoma hematoma complications

Thank you for sharing your question and I am sorry to hear of your forehead hematoma.  If it has now liqueified your surgeon can insert a needle to draw off the fluid hopefully allowing the swelling to resolve and your healing to finish.  See your surgeon for an in-person examination, they can then determine the best treatment option.  Best wishes
