What is Lipoma?

Lipoma is a condition that arises when a lump of fat starts to grow in the body’s soft tissues. Situated between the skin and underlying muscle layer, it is often considered a tumor by doctors. However, they are non-cancerous. It can occur anywhere on the body but most commonly found on the chest, shoulder, neck, thighs, and forearms. They are considered benign growths and are rarely harmful.

In some cases, multiple lipomas can be present that can also become painful. As a result, you will need surgical treatment. With Pristyn Care, you can get proper treatment for lipoma through a painless and scarless procedure. Contact Pristyn Care today and undergo lipoma excision surgery for removal of the fatty tissues.

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

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.

How to remove lipoma without surgery?

Generally, steroid injections can be used to remove lipoma without surgery. However, this method is not as effective as excision surgery as there is a higher chance that the fatty tissues are not removed completely through these procedures.
