Lipoma Removal

A lipoma is a benign tumour that grows under the skin and is made up of fat cells. They are usually harmless and painless, and don’t require treatment. However, there a some reasons why you may want a lipoma to be removed:

  • It’s large and noticeable and its appearance is causing you distress
  • The growth is cancerous
  • Causes pain and discomfort
  • The lipoma is growing
  • It is in awkward or sensitive part of the body

Different types of lipoma removal

Lipoma removal is a simple surgical procedure that is carried out to remove the lumps of fatty tissue that develop under the skin. Lipomas can grow anywhere in the body, including the forehead, arms, legs, and abdomen. There are two main types of lipoma removal:

  • Surgical removal – whether you’re having a back lipoma removal, an abdominal lipoma removal, or a removal in other parts of the body, the procedure involves a small incision where the fatty tissue is located. The surgeon then squeezes out the lipoma. 
  • Liposuction – this involves the use of a needle and syringe to remove the lipoma.

How to prepare for lipoma removal?

Before surgery, you will need to shower and wash with antibacterial soap. You need to avoid shaving around the area of the lipoma. Your doctor will also tell you which medications you need to stop taking on the day of the operation. These include ACE inhibitors for blood pressure, blood thinners, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If you’re going to be sedated during surgery, you need to avoid eating or drinking anything 6 hours beforehand. You may experience some discomfort after surgery so arrange for someone to give you a lift home, even if you have been under local anaesthesia. 

What happens during a lipoma removal?

You will be given a local anaesthetic on the area of skin where the lipoma is located. You should feel no pain, except some pressure or pushing as the surgeon carries out the procedure. For lipomas that are larger or lie deeper under skin you will be under sedation so that you can sleep and be free from pain throughout the procedure. The surgeon then makes an incision and removes the lipoma. Once removed, the lipoma may then be tested for cancer. The opening on the skin is pulled back together using stitches or medical glue. The incision is covered by a pressure bandage to prevent bleeding.

What is lipoma removal recovery like?

After the procedure, you will feel some pain and discomfort in the area where the incision was made. This can last for between a few days and a week. If the lipoma was located in your forehead or scalp, you may get tension headaches. The pain can be managed using over-the-counter painkillers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. During your lipoma removal recovery time, avoid any intense physical exercise. After about a week or so, you should be able to return to normal daily activities. 

Is there scarring and bruising after lipoma removal?

You may have a scar after lipoma removal, but it depends on the size of the fatty tissue that was removed. You may have extensive scarring if a large lipoma was extracted. Whilst small lipomas need minimal incisions so the scar is not likely to be noticeable. You may well experience swelling and bruising, but these should disappear within a few days.
