Lipoma Excision

A lipoma is a lump under the skin that occurs due to an overgrowth of fat cells. The typical lipoma is a small, soft, rubbery & doughy lump located just beneath the skin.

Lipomas are usually painless and are most often found on the upper back, shoulders, arms, buttocks, and upper thighs. Less commonly, these tumors can be found in deeper tissue of the thigh, shoulder, or calf.

It is fairly common for a person to develop a lipoma. Since most of the Lipomas are benign masses of fat cells it should not worry you, however one should always consult a doctor if he/she notices any change in a lipoma or if more lumps appear.

No treatment is usually necessary for a lipoma. However, if the lipoma bothers you, is painful or is growing, your doctor might recommend it to be removed. There are primarily two most common techniques for Lipoma Removal:

Lipoma Excision: It is a surgical procedure in which lipoma is removed by cutting it out.
Liposuction: This treatment uses a needle and a large syringe to remove the fatty lump.
