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 Indore.

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

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.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Karthik Vishwanath-Say-About-Lipoma-Treatment

Dr. Karthik Vishwanath

MBBS, MS, Mch, MRCS

15 Years Experience

"Most of my patients come to me when the lump (lipoma) on their bodies has grown significantly. They also ask if it is possible to remove the lump through medications. In most cases, either liposuction or surgical excision is needed to remove these encapsulated lumps of fatty tissues. Though lipoma is a benign tumor, it should not be left untreated. Sometimes, a cancerous lump, i.e., a liposarcoma may go undetected, being mistaken as a lipoma. Therefore, it is critical to consult a specialist and get proper treatment for the lipoma."

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to treat lipoma with medications?

There are no USFDA-approved medications available for lipoma treatment. However, there is a non-surgical treatment method for lipomas, i.e., steroid injections. When the steroid solution is injected into the lump, it shrinks the fat tissues, thereby treating lipomas temporarily.

What is the best technique to get rid of lipomas?

The best technique to get rid of lipomas is lipoma excision surgery. Though liposuction can also be helpful in removing the fatty lumps, the most effective method is excising the lump entirely. In many cases, the liposuction technique and excision technique are combined to deliver the best results.

What are the risks and complications involved with lipoma surgery?

Similar to any other surgical treatment, lipoma removal also has some risks and complications, such as:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Seroma
  • Injury to the blood vessels
  • Excessive scarring
Who performs lipoma removal surgery?

The right type of doctor to perform lipoma removal surgery is a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. While the dermatologist will focus entirely on removing the lipoma, the plastic surgeon will prefer using the treatment method that removes the lump without leaving a major scar on the body.

You can find the best plastic surgeons in Indore at Pristyn Care. We have certified and highly experienced doctors who have treated numerous cases of lipoma successfully. You can rely on our lipoma doctors and get surgical treatment under their care.

How much does lipoma removal surgery cost in Indore?

Lipoma removal costs around Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 30,000 approximately in Indore. This is only an estimated cost that may vary for each patient based on factors like, the choice of hospital, surgeon’s fee, number, size, and location of lipoma, hospitalization charges, diagnostic tests, etc.

Is lipoma treatment expenses covered by health insurance?

Generally, if you are undergoing lipoma surgery for cosmetic reasons, the treatment expense won’t be covered by insurance. However, if the lipoma is symptomatic and the surgery is being performed for medical reasons, insurance will provide ample coverage for lipoma treatment.

Does Pristyn Care accept insurance for lipoma treatment in Indore?

Yes. Pristyn Care accepts health insurance from all major providers in Indore as well as other cities across India. Our medical coordinators will gather the insurance-related documents and we will help you to get the maximum amount of claim for the treatment.

Is lipoma surgery painful?

No. The surgery itself doesn’t cause any kind of pain or discomfort as your body will be numb due to the effects of anesthesia. But once the anesthesia wears off, you may feel slight pain in the treated area. To provide relief, the doctor may prescribe some pain medications.

How long does it take to recover after lipoma surgery?

You may need around 2-3 weeks to recover completely after lipoma surgery. In the initial days, it will be better if you take proper rest and start regular activities in the next few days. Gradually, you will be able to perform daily activities without any pain or discomfort.

Can I consult with Pristyn Care doctors during recovery?

Do lipomas go away?

In some scenarios, the lipomas may disappear on their own. However, it happens rarely. Normally, you will need either medical or surgical treatment for lipomas.

Is there a cure for lipoma in Ayurveda?

Common herbal remedies that are used for lipoma cure in Ayurveda are:

  • Triphala Powder (Indian gooseberry, black myrobalan, and belleric myrobalan)
  • Udvartana
  • Vamana Therapy

It is important to keep in mind that there is no scientific proof that would support the use of ayurvedic treatments for lipoma.

Why should lipomas not be left untreated?

Being a benign tumor, many people leave lipomas untreated for a very long time. But the lump continues to grow over time. It may take several years to grow up to a size that can cause pain or compression in the nerves. The chances of lipomas becoming problematic are rare. It usually happens when fat accumulation occurs around the nerves. When the lump grows, it compresses the nerves and causes pain and discomfort. People seek treatment for lipomas at this point. Moreover, the large size of lipomas also becomes aesthetically unpleasing, especially if they are present around the face, ear, neck, or arms. Furthermore, the lump will be difficult to remove due to its large size. There will be a higher risk of tissue and nerve damage during the procedure. That’s why doctors often suggest that getting lipoma treatment at the earlier stages is better than delaying treatment. Early removal can be done easily without major risks and scarring is also minimal. One other thing you should also be aware of is that ignoring lipoma can have another consequence. You may end up ignoring a cancerous lump, thinking that it is benign. This may put your life at risk and you’ll ultimately have to undergo surgery to get rid of the cancerous lump. Therefore, it is crucial that you get the lump diagnosed to rule out the possibility of cancer and determine whether you should get the lump removed or not.

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.
