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 and consult the best plastic surgeons in Kozhikode.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Question

Can I leave lipoma untreated?

No. Even though lipoma is harmless and benign, it should not be left untreated. The fatty tissues will continue to grow over time and eventually will become painful. The doctors often advise not to leave lipoma untreated as there is a minor possibility of lipomas turning into cancerous sarcoma.

Is lipoma removal cost in Kozhikode covered under insurance?

Lipoma removal cost in Kozhikode will be covered under insurance if it is performed for medical reasons. If you wish to remove lipoma because of cosmetic concerns and don’t exhibit painful symptoms, then the insurance company won’t pay the expenses. In this scenario, you’ll have to pay the treatment expense from your own pockets.

How long does it take for lipoma excision surgery?

The lipoma excision surgery can be carried out within 30-45 minutes by an expert doctor.

How long does recovery from lipoma surgery takes?

No. Lipomas are highly unlikely to return after surgery. Generally, the fatty tissues are extracted completely to make sure that the fat tissues don’t start depositing in the same place. However, there is a slight possibility that you may get lipoma in another part of the body.
