Some people develop noncancerous fatty growths, called lipomas, under the skin. A lipoma won’t affect your overall health, but if you don’t like the way the lump looks, you’re concerned about it growing larger, or it becomes infected, it can be removed in a simple outpatient procedure.
We will assess your lump fully to ensure it is benign before removing it. Please note that if your lump growing fast or is painful then it is essential to consult your GP about it.
When considering any lump removal on the face, it is vital that a properly trained surgeon carries out the procedure.
Lipoma removal surgery is a simple and relatively quick procedure that will get rid of your lipomas with minimal scarring and recovery time. There are various options for treating lipomas, including liposuction, and surgical excision. Lipoma removal surgery involves a small incision placed over, or near, the lipoma followed by removal of the mass from the surrounding tissue. A layered closure of the skin completes the procedure. The surgery will result in a scar however in some cases, liposuction may be used, which results in smaller scars. However, any incomplete removal (as is likely with liposuction) may result in the lipoma growing again.
Risks associated with this procedure include; haematoma, infection, lumpy, wide or red scarring, painful scarring, cyst recurrence and indentation at the cyst removal point. Please note that cyst removal almost always results in a scar. lipoma recurrence and indentation at the removal site (this can occur when a large lipoma is removed).
*Individual results may vary.
There are some possible risks, as with all surgery, which will be explained to you at the time of your consultation. This is an opportunity to discuss your treatment and allow your consultant to ascertain your expectations and discuss the results that can be achieved. In order for you to make an informed choice it is vital that you understand all aspects of the procedure and all possible outcomes.
