Many patients who undergo lipoma treatment surgery are concerned about having a lipoma scar post-surgery.

Lipoma Treatment Surgery
Lipoma removal surgery (lipoma excision) involves an incision being made to the skin above the fatty tissue. After creating the incision, the surgeon removes the fatty tumors completely, and sutures the skin once the tumor has been excised. Surgery to remove a skin lump is typically very quick, and can be done on an outpatient basis.
This kind of surgery recovery time is minimal, and patients can go home the same day as their surgeries, usually returning to work and other daily activities the following day.

Lipoma Removal Scar

Having your fat lump removed can mean relief from any pain associated with the fatty tumor, as well as a return to the natural appearance of your skin – with no lump to feel self-conscious about. Our surgeons were trained in top programs and practice the most cutting-edge procedures, a fact which enables them to minimize and even sometimes completely eliminate the scarring associated with lipoma treatment.
