What are lipomas?

Lipomas are fatty lumps that appear under the skin, caused by the over-growth of fat cells.

Why choose lipoma removal surgery in Cambridge?

Lipomas are usually not painful, and so most patients choose lipoma removal surgery for cosmetic reasons.

Cambridge patients may opt for lipoma removal surgery if they feel self-conscious about the appearance of lipomas and suffer harm to their self-esteem as a result.

This is especially common if patients suffer from unsightly or large lipomas, or if they have a prominent location on the head or neck. The nature of the lipomas in such cases may lead some patients to feel self-conscious about them, and seek plastic surgery as a result.

However, in some cases, lipomas can cause additional symptoms. If they press on a nerve, the lump may cause pain.

Will lipomas go away on their own?

The vast majority of lipomas will continue to grow slowly on the skin without treatment.

Therefore, we recommend contacting our clinic to discuss your options regarding removal.

What is the procedure for lipoma removal surgery?

You will be placed under local anaesthetic during the surgical procedure. As a result of the local anaesthetic, you will experience minimal pain.

We do not use general anaesthetics for these procedures.

The plastic surgeon will make a straight incision on the skin over the lipoma, and then remove the lipoma. Then the surgeon will close the cut with stitches.

These stitches can be removed by the plastic surgeon typically about 5 days after treatment.

What is recovery like after the surgery?

The healing process following lipoma removal surgery is relatively easy. You should be able to return to work the day after surgery.
