Lipoma Excision

Lipomas are typically slow-growing and often painless superficial lumps and can appear at different locations. They can sometimes cause discomfort or cosmetic concerns if they become large or located in visible areas of the body. Lipoma excision is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, with a low risk of complications.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

During a lipoma excision, a surgeon makes an incision over the lipoma and carefully removes the fat deposition along with the surrounding capsule. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia, depending on the size and location of the lipoma. Lipoma excision is typically an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient can usually go home the same day after the surgery. The incision site is closed with sutures, and the surgeon may apply a dressing or bandage to promote healing and protect the wound.

What to expect after your surgery:

After the surgery, patients are advised to follow post-operative care instructions, which may include keeping the incision clean and dry, avoiding strenuous activities, and taking prescribed medications if needed. Recovery time can vary depending on the size and location of the lipoma and the individual’s healing process.
