Lipomas or fatty tumors are benign tumors of mature fat cells that may appear anywhere on the body. Although the majority of lipomas are not harmful, patients often choose to remove lipomas for aesthetic or functional reasons.
Dr. Michelle Copeland and Dr. Libby Copeland-Halperin have developed lipoma removal expertise which includes combining excision with liposuction techniques to remove lipomas with minimal scarring and quicker recovery time. Read more about our lipoma removal techniques in our publication: Combined Liposuction and Excision of Lipomas study. When you schedule a consultation, we will discuss the options to provide the best results. Lipoma-removal surgery takes place in our private AAAASF-accredited surgical suite.
Dr. Copeland Halperin where have you been all my life?! I suffer from keloid scarring (easily) and she was able to successfully remove the lipoma that was on my upper shoulder area WITHOUT a keloid scar forming! The lipoma was fairly large at 4” but she made a small incision (1cm) which allowed the scar to heal nicely. During the consultation and all the way to post surgery care, she addressed all of my concerns. She really does a phenomenal job and great at what she does. I do want to give a quick shoutout to all her staff (Andrea and Lauren) because they do an amazing job as well. Thank you thank you!
I came to see Dr. Copeland to remove a lipoma on my forehead. I had it excised in 2018 by a dermatologist, but the entirety was not removed and I still had an embarrassing lump on my forehead. I saw that Dr. Copeland specialized in lipomas and scheduled a consultation. She scheduled me in for the procedure the next day to have it removed. The results are amazing! You cannot tell I ever had a lipoma on my forehead. I feel so much more confident in public. I no longer am self conscious if people are look at my forehead, wondering what happened to me, while they’re talking to me. I highly recommend Dr. Copeland!
Dr. Libby Copeland-Halperin staff are very professional. Dr. Copeland-Halperin is very knowledge and caring about her work. I would recommend any one in the tri state area to use her.
Dr. Copeland Halperin is an amazing plastic surgeon. She was very professional and fully explained the lipoma excision procedure during our consultation. Throughout the whole process, she was both knowledgeable and thoughtful. This showed through in the outcome of the surgery which resulted in very minimal scarring. Would highly recommend!
