About Lipoma

A lipoma is a type of benign skin lump that is composed of fatty tissues. These fatty lumps are located between the skin and the underlying muscle layer. Normally, these lumps don't cause any harm and grow at a very gradual rate. However, in some cases, a lipoma may be present right above the blood vessels and when it grows, the blood vessels get compressed. Due to this, lipomas may cause pain and discomfort.

If you have a lipoma, either painful or painless, and wish to get rid of it, get in touch with Pristyn Care for lipoma removal surgery in Delhi.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis

    Lipoma diagnosis usually involves a simple physical examination. It is easy to feel and inspect as the lump is visible from the outside. Lipoma also moves when touched as it is made up of fatty tissues. The doctors may also take a biopsy to rule out the possibility of cancer. Other than that, tests like ultrasound scan, MRI scan, and CT scan are also performed for accurate diagnosis of lipoma.

    Procedure

    Lipoma diagnosis usually involves a simple physical examination. It is easy to feel and inspect as the lump is visible from the outside. Lipoma also moves when touched as it is made up of fatty tissues. The doctors may also take a biopsy to rule out the possibility of cancer. Other than that, tests like ultrasound scan, MRI scan, and CT scan are also performed for accurate diagnosis of lipoma.

    The effective treatment of lipoma involves surgery. During the procedure, the doctor makes a small excision and uses the liposuction technique to extract the fatty tissues. It is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves no scar on the body and reduces the chances of lipoma recurrence. Performed under the care of our expert surgeons, the procedure has a higher success rate than non-surgical treatments.

    Different Types of Lipomas

    Typically, all lipomas are composed of fat tissues. However, in some cases, the lump may consist of blood vessels and other tissues as well. Based on this, lipomas are classified into the following types:Angiolipoma- Contains fat and blood vessels and also causes pain.

    • Conventional Lipoma- Contains white fat cells that store energy.
    • Fibrolipoma- Consists of fat and fibrous tissue.
    • Hibernoma- Consists of brown fat that are responsible for generating heat and helps to regulate body temperature.
    • Myelolipoma- This type of lipoma contains fat and tissues that contain blood cells.
    • Spindle Cell Lipoma- They have a spindle-like shape of the fat cells.
    • Pleomorphic- This type of lipoma has fat cells of different shapes and sizes.
    • Adenolipoma- New variant of superficial lipoma in which eccrine sweat glands are present with fatty tumors.

    All these types of lipoma are non-cancerous. However, some of them may cause pain and discomfort due to the composition. Therefore, it is crucial that you get the lipoma diagnosed and get proper treatment for it.

    What is lipomatosis?

    Lipomatosis, also known as hereditary multiple lipomatosis, is a medical condition due to which multiple lipomas start to form in different parts of the body, such as the neck, head, shoulders, back, thigh, etc. This autosomal dominant condition is characterized by the appearance of symmetric lipomas, typically in the extremities and trunk region.

    Lipomatosis is also associated with Gardner’s syndrome and Madelung’s disease. The treatment method for single lipoma and multiple lipomas is the same. The fatty lump is excised carefully and the patient is asked to take certain precautions to prevent the formation of these fatty lumps.

    What are the side effects of lipoma removal surgery?

    Though the lipoma removal procedure is safe and minimally invasive, there are still possibilities that you will experience some side effects from the surgery. The common side effects include:

    • Bruising- Immediately after the surgery, there will be bruises around the site from where the fatty lump is removed.
    • Swelling- The swelling in the region where the lump existed will be swollen for a week or so. The swelling will subside gradually as the wound heals.
    • Infection- There is a possibility that the internal organs may come in contact with external contaminants and cause infection. Even the wound can get infected if it gets wet.
    • Injury to the Nearby Structures- In some situations, it is possible that lipoma is present directly over an organ. Hence, during the surgery, the nerves, tissues, or the organ itself may get damaged during the procedure.
    • Hematoma Formation- Another side effect of lipoma surgery is blood clot formation. If the wall of a blood vessel is injured during lipoma removal, blood clots may start to form outside the vessel into the surrounding tissue.
    • Excessive Scarring- In rare instances, lipoma treatment may leave major scars on the body. It usually happens when the size of lipoma is big and its removal is difficult.
    • Seroma- Another side effect of lipoma surgery is the collection of fluid, i.e., blood plasma and inflammatory fluid that is produced by the injured cells. Early or improper removal of stitches can also cause seroma sometimes.

    Recovery Tips After Lipoma Surgery

    Immediately after the surgery, you will be asked to take complete bed rest for at least 24 hours. The doctor will also prescribe some pain medicine and NSAIDs to reduce your pain, swelling, fever, and also minimize the chances of infection. Before discharge, the doctor will prepare a complete recovery guide that will include self-care tips, precautions, dos, and don’ts as well.

    • Do not let the incisions get wet. Avoid taking baths or getting in hot tubs for at least 4 weeks.
    • Wash the incision with soap and warm water. Dry the wound and put on new clean bandages. This will prevent the wound from getting infected.
    • Apply ice over the wound for the next few days after surgery to reduce the swelling.
    • Do not indulge in physical activities, especially lifting heavy weights as they can tear up the stitches.
    • Avoid driving for the next few days until approved by the doctor.
    • Eat a normal diet that consists of healthy and nutritious items, including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

    If you notice some signs of post-surgery complications, such as excessive bleeding from the wound, persistent swelling, nausea, vomiting, high fever, etc., contact your healthcare provider right away.

    How to prevent lipomas?

    Generally, lipoma prevention is not possible as it usually occurs due to inherited conditions. They are passed down in families through genes. Therefore, it is almost impossible to prevent them.

    However, in one condition, you may be able to prevent lipomas from developing. This is applicable when lipomas are caused by Madelung’s disease. You can prevent the fatty lumps from growing by limiting your alcohol intake.

    You can discuss other plausible methods to prevent lipomas with a lipoma specialist in Delhi.
