» Lipoma Removal | EF Medispa What Is A Lipoma? A lipoma is a soft, rubbery lump of fatty tissue that is found beneath the skin’s surface. They may vary in size from a few millimetres to a few centimetres and may be close to the surface or deeper into your tissue. Lipomas are generally harmless, and Lipoma removal in London is considered a cosmetic procedure. However, if you notice a new lump on your body you should always seek the opinion of a professional Dermatologist, who will be able to confirm that it is not a cancerous liposarcoma. Lipomas occur due to an overgrowth of fat cells which are usually soft and can be moved slightly beneath the surface of your skin. They are commonly found in areas such as the chest, arms, back and lower body, and it is possible to have multiple lipomas concurrently.
