Lipoma Removal

Lipoma are lumps of fatty tissue that can appear anywhere on the body. These lumps are usually benign (non cancerous), but as they can be noticeable to others, they will cause a degree of aesthetic concern. Depending on where the lipoma is located, it may also cause some minor discomfort, although they are not usually painful.

Surgical excision requires a cut to be made in the skin that lies over the lump which will allow our surgeon to remove the fatty tissue that lies beneath. The incision is then stitched back together, ensuring any excess skin is also removed to create a smooth surface.

A single lipoma or multiple lipoma can be removed in a single session. However, if there are a large number of lumps, more than 1 treatment session may be needed. Although uncommon, there is a chance lipoma can grow back after treatment, and there is no guarantee a lump will not develop somewhere else.

Frequently asked questions

Currently, lipomas are not removed on the NHS as they are not considered detrimental to a person’s health. However, Chester Cosmetic Surgery recognises the impact they can have on a person’s well-being and will ensure a thorough examination has been carried out to determine your suitability.

Surgical excision or liposuction are both safe and effective options for removing lipomas. The procedure is treated as a day case, and doesn’t often require multiple treatment sessions.

Excision surgery may be uncomfortable. Chester Cosmetic Surgery uses a local anaesthetic for this procedures, so you won’t feel any pain.

Redness, swelling and bruising may occur for up to 1 week after the procedure. Some minor scarring may be left behind, which will fade over time.

Lipoma removal aims to take away as much fatty tissue as possible (and in many cases removes all of the fatty tissue), producing an immediate result.
