What is a Lipoma?

Lipoma is a well-defined benign growth of fat cells called Adipocytes under the skin. The cause is unknown. This slow growing mobile lump feels soft to touch and ranges from the size of a pea to a few centimetres across. Lipoma is quite common with about one in 100 people developing them. It is usually silent, however some patients want them removed as they can cause pain or disfigurement.

Removal of these Lipomas is by Surgical Excision. The procedure will be done under local anaesthetic and would last 30 minutes approximately. The skin needs to be incised and the lump flushed out. The wound will be closed with sutures and a dressing will be applied on. It will leave a linear scar that usually fade away over the years.



What is included : Once the patient goes ahead for surgery, the price will include the consultation, the surgical procedure, the post-operative care pack and the post treatment review if requested.

Stitches offer optimal healing and need to be removed 7-10 days after the procedure. Our team will assist you in arranging your suture removal as part of our aftercare treatment.
