The Basics

What is a Forehead Lipoma Excision?

A forehead lipoma is a non-cancerous, slow-growing fatty lump that forms just beneath the skin on the forehead. Lipomas are among the most common benign tumors that people can develop, and they are typically painless. These growths are composed of fat cells and are usually soft to the touch. In the forehead, a lipoma can be more firm. It may be slightly mobile and slightly tethered. It classically grows beneath the frontalis muscle (that lifts the eyebrows). Forehead lipomas are often visible and can affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence, especially when they are prominent or located in a noticeable area. They seem to show up in every photograph and video call because they reflect light.

Many individuals choose to remove the lipomas to improve the appearance of their forehead and regain a more natural look. While they are generally harmless and don’t pose any significant health risks, forehead lipomas can cause cosmetic concerns and, in some cases, discomfort or pressure when they grow larger or in particularly noticeable locations.

Forehead Lipoma Excision Timeline


    You will discuss your specific goals and concerns with Dr. Paul who will examine your forehead. The first step in your visit is to deterimine the nature of your forehead bump, as not all bumps are lipomas.  Dr. Paul will determine the best technique to remove the lipoma and create your procedure plan. You will then meet with our Patient  Coordinator who will help you schedule your surgery date and provide you with instructions to follow that will make your procedure as successful as possible.

    1st Visit

    You will meet with Dr. Paul at our surgical center before your procedure to discuss the process one more time. The majority of forehead lipomas can be removed under local anesthesia. For some patients, a deeper anesthesia is given.  After you have been given anesthesia, Dr. Paul will make precise incisions to carefully remove the lipoma, then stitch and bandage your forehead. Once released from our care that same day, you can have a relative or friend take you home to rest comfortably.


    There will be some pain, swelling, and bruising around the surgical site.  You will remove the compression bandage the following day if one is placed. During the first week, it is important to avoid any strenuous activities or to lift heavy objects. Patients often may shower 24 hours after the procedure.

    DAYS 1-5

    You will return one week after your procedure to have your sutures removed. You may resume some light activities but avoid any strenuous exercise or heavy lifting.

    WEEK 1-2

    Within 3 weeks, you should feel more comfortable and have minimal swelling and bruising. It will be safe to resume normal activities and exercise for most patients.

    WEEKS 3-4

    Congratulations on your new smooth forehead. It is rare for a lipoma to grow back. Enjoy this lasting result.

What are the Benefits of a Forehead Lipoma Excision?

A New York City Forehead Lipoma Excision offers a range of benefits that can significantly improve your quality of life and overall well-being:

  • Enhanced Appearance: One of the primary reasons individuals opt for Forehead Lipoma Excision is the remarkable improvement it brings to their appearance. By removing the lipoma, this procedure restores a more natural and symmetrical look to the forehead, so you can say goodbye to the visible lump that may have been affecting your self-confidence.
  • Relief from Discomfort: For those experiencing discomfort or pressure due to a prominent or deep forehead lipoma, excision provides much-needed relief. You no longer have to endure the discomfort associated with the lipoma pressing against nearby tissues or nerves.
  • Boosted Confidence: Addressing your cosmetic concerns can have a profound impact on your self-esteem and confidence. Forehead Lipoma Excision can boost your self-confidence by improving your overall appearance for a smoother-looking forehead, allowing you to feel more comfortable in social and professional settings.
  • Peace of Mind: While lipomas are benign growths, some individuals choose excision for peace of mind. Removing the lipoma eliminates any concerns about its potential for growth or complications in the future. You can relax with greater peace of mind knowing that the issue has been addressed and taken care of.
  • Minimally Invasive: A Forehead Lipoma Excision is a minimally invasive procedure, which means you can achieve these benefits with relatively little downtime and minimal scarring. This makes it an attractive option for those seeking to enhance their forehead’s appearance without undergoing an extensive surgical procedure.

Benjamin Paul, MD

What’s The First Step?

Your journey toward Forehead Lipoma Excision in NYC begins with an initial consultation with our experienced Double-Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Ben Paul. During this consultation, you’ll discuss your specific concerns, goals, and medical history. Dr. Paul will evaluate the lipoma’s size and location, ensuring that you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure. You can also use this consultation as an opportunity to address any questions or concerns you may have about the surgery, the recovery period, or the cost of the procedure.

What to Expect on the Day of Forehead Lipoma Excision Surgery

On the day of your Forehead Lipoma Excision surgery, you’ll arrive at our modern, well-equipped facility where Dr. Paul and our experienced medical team will ensure your comfort and readiness for the procedure.

Once you’re prepared, Dr. Paul will make precise incisions using advanced techniques to carefully remove the lipoma, always keeping in mind the goal of minimizing scarring and achieving the best aesthetic outcome. The surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, with sedation available if needed, ensuring you remain comfortable throughout your treatment. The surgery generally lasts about an hour, after which you’ll spend some time in a comfortable recovery area, monitored by our medical team to ensure your safety and ease as you emerge from anesthesia.

After a Forehead Lipoma Excision procedure, it’s generally recommended that patients arrange for someone to drive them home because the use of sedation during the surgery can temporarily affect coordination and reaction times. Having a responsible, trusted individual drive you home ensures your safety and comfort immediately following the treatment.  If no sedation is given, you may be eligible to leave on your own.

Forehead Lipoma Excision Recovery

Recovery following a Forehead Lipoma Excision is a critical phase in your journey to a more comfortable and confident appearance. For the first few days after the surgery, it’s normal to experience some swelling and bruising in the treated area, which can be managed with prescribed medication. It’s essential to follow post-op instructions carefully, including wound care and any restrictions on activities. Expect to rest and avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery period.

Follow-up appointments with Dr. Paul will monitor your progress and ensure that your forehead heals as expected. While you’ll notice initial improvements shortly after the procedure, the final results will become more visible as swelling subsides over several weeks. As your body heals, you’ll regain the natural contour of your forehead, and any discomfort or pressure from the lipoma will be alleviated.

Combine Your Forehead Lipoma Excision

Combining procedures can be a practical and efficient way to address multiple cosmetic concerns simultaneously. Some common combination options include Forehead Lipoma Excision with other facial procedures to enhance overall facial aesthetics. During your consultation, you can discuss your desires with Dr. Paul and explore the possibilities of combining procedures to achieve your aesthetic goals effectively and efficiently.

How Much Does a Forehead Lipoma Excision Cost in New York City?

The cost of a Forehead Lipoma Excision in New York City can vary widely depending on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, the location of the lipoma, the amount of anesthesia required, and additional tests or evaluations that may be needed for some patients.

During your consultation, Dr. Paul can evaluate your forehead lipoma, discuss the treatment plan, and provide a detailed estimate of the total cost. There are times we can provide paperwork to submit to your insurance for reimbursement, though we do NOT take any insurance at this time and we do not participate with any payment plan programs.
