Not sure if this is the right area...lipoma removal

Postby Matthew110607 » Thu Feb 05, 2009 12:00 am

I had a 2cm lipoma removed from my forehead last Monday (1 wk, 2 days ago). It was on the bone under the muscle.

Before it was barely noticeable but I could notice it and I was self conscious. You could really only see it in certain lighting conditions.

But now that it's removed, I understand there is swelling. But there is a part of where it was that is actually below the surface, like a divot or whatever you would call it. So from left to right it goes from the surface, up (swelling), then down (divot thing), then back up a little (swelling), then down (surface). I'm just worried that not only will I have some residual bump left, but now instead of a "gradual hill" it's going to be a bumpy mess (up and down).

I guess my question is, is this normal and will my body naturally make the divot go away so that when the swelling on the rest of the incision goes down it will be level?

I don't even know if this post makes sense.

Here is a picture, it's the best I can do. This was taken a couple days post op, but it really doesn't look too much different (a little less swelling, but you can still see the divot).

And yes, I am vain, which is why this bothers me. :(
