What is a lipoma? 

A lipoma is a benign fatty lump that develops underneath the skin. It is typically non-cancerous and feels soft to the touch.

What areas of the body can lipomas be removed from? 

Lipomas can be effectively removed from any area as long as it is safe to do so ie any area that is not too close to another vital structure.

Do I need to have a consultation before lipoma removal? 

Yes, we offer an initial consultation either online or in person, where our surgeon will provide advice on when and how a lipoma can be removed.

How long does the lipoma removal procedure take? 

The lipoma removal procedure typically takes between 30 to 40 minutes.

Are lipomas harmful? 

Lipomas are generally non-cancerous and do not pose a significant health risk. However, they can cause discomfort and distress due to their appearance or location.

Does lipoma removal involve pain? 

Our specialist surgeon can perform the procedure under local anaesthetic injections, causing minimal pain and discomfort.

Are lipomas common? 

Yes, lipomas are relatively common and can occur in people of all ages. They often appear as a single lump but can also occur in multiple locations on the body.

Can lipomas turn into cancer? 

Lipomas are generally non-cancerous and do not turn into cancer. However, in rare cases, a liposarcoma, a cancerous form of lipoma, may develop. Our surgeon can provide further guidance during the consultation.

Is lipoma removal a permanent solution? 

Yes, lipoma removal usually provides a permanent solution. Once a lipoma is removed, it typically does not grow back. However, new lipomas can develop in other areas of the body.

Will there be scarring after lipoma removal? 

Our specialist surgeon performs lipoma removal with techniques designed to minimise scarring. The type and degree of scarring will depend on the size and location of the lipoma. The consultant will discuss this during the consultation.
