Lipoma removed on my forehead but bump still exists? (Photo)

Bump after lipoma removal
There are several possibilities. From most likely to least likely.
1) Some resolving bruising from the time of surgery
2) A small seroma
3) Remaining lipoma - this can sometimes occur if it was multilobulated or located under the frontalis muscle
I would advise you get a review by your surgeon. 1 and 2 should settle but 3 won't.

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph and I can see your area of concern. After three weeks this is unlikely to be due to swelling and I would see your surgeon for an in-person evaluation. This bump is either a discrete fluid collection - seroma or hematoma - or remaining lipoma material. Hope this helps.

This may be fluid which can give the appearance of the lump coming back. Follow up with your surgeon. If it bothers you then the fluid can be aspirated.
