HOW DOES IT WORK?

What is a lipoma removal surgery?

A lipoma is an overgrowth of fat cells in your body. It usually appears as a soft bump, and mostly does not have any associated symptoms or risks. In the majority of cases, lipomas are not removed since they are benign i.e non-cancerous. They can occur anywhere on and inside your body but are most commonly found on the neck, thighs, shoulders. Lipomas are usually quite small between 2-3 cm, but in rare cases can grow up to 10 cm in size.

If the lipoma starts being painful, or exerts pressure on an organ causing associated symptoms is when it should be removed.

How does lipoma removal surgery work?

Listed below are the steps of a lipoma removal surgery:

1. You will receive local anaesthesia on your the site of the lipoma.
2. Your surgeon will make an incision, the length of which will be determined by the size of your lipoma. Then the lipoma will be removed from under the skin.
