Procedure Details

This 32-year-old male patient visited our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Timothy Mountcastle, and presented him with a very large lipoma that he wanted removed. The benign tumor measured 15 x 10 cm, which was a giant, noticeable growth located on the chest and shoulder. The patient was concerned with the lipoma's size, which could be seen with or without a shirt on. Dr. Mountcastle performed the excision in 30 minutes at Mountcastle Plastic Surgery and Vein Institute using a local anesthetic and cosmetic mini incisions. Once the tumor was removed, Dr. Mountcastle closed the area with a cosmetic layered closure using absorbable sutures. This patient's chest and shoulder blade was a noticeably different shape post-operation, and he was very pleased with the results.
