Procedure Details

After a personal consultation for a benign tumor with Dr. Mountcastle, this 32-year-old patient in Northern Virginia decided to have a lipoma removed from her back (near the shoulder blade) for cosmetic reasons, which had slowly grown larger over the years. This patient was scheduled for an out-patient surgery Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute in Ashburn, VA. On the day of surgery, the large mass was removed using a micro incision surgical technique, and closed with sutures. Compression of the area was needed to reduce the risk of fluid collection after the procedure. Two weeks' post-operation, this patient returned to see Dr. Mountcastle to have the sutures removed. She was very pleased with the outcome of the lipoma removal, and her incision was healing very nicely. Dr. Mountcastle provided her with an at-home scar treatment and instructions to reduce the visibility of the incision mark over time.
