A lipoma is a soft lump that is made up of fatty tissue. They usually occur just under the skin and are harmless, however people may wish to remove a lipoma that is causing discomfort or for cosmetic reasons. Lipomas occur due to an overgrowth of fat cells. They are usually soft and movable and are commonly found in areas such as the chest, arms, back and lower body. Some people have more than one lipoma.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
*Individual results may vary.
Lipomas are commonly found just below the skin’s surface, in areas such as the chest, arms, back and lower body. Our team of expert dermatologists are experienced in removing lipomas from all areas of the body, including sensitive and hard to reach areas.
Our lipoma removal techniques take around 30 minutes, however this time may vary depending on the size and depth of your lipoma.
The removal will be performed under local anaesthetic to help reduce any pain or discomfort. However, you may feel pressure or pushing during the procedure. There is minimal downtime with our methods of lipoma removal.
Our lipoma removal techniques are minimally invasive to reduce the appearance of scarring. Post-treatment you may see bruising or swelling, but this will gradually subside.
Recurrences after lipoma removal are uncommon.
