A lipoma is a benign tumour of fat and thinly encapsulated. It appears as slow-growing bumps of subcutaneous fat. It is 2 or 3 cm in size and non-tender; they are normally soft and doughy or rubbery with touching and rarely feel hard, which rarely gives pain if pressed. Usually, they do not respond to changes in body fat fluctuations.

What is Lipoma Surgery?
- A small number of lipomas can be removed under local anesthesia, while a large number of lipomas can be removed with the application of local anaesthesia along with sedation.
Tiny incision of about 0.5-0.8 cm is made over lipoma and nearby lipoma can be treated from the same incision rather than a separate incision.
- Fat Aspiration:
A small cannula is a slide under the skin to remove the fat cells. Power Assisted Liposuction is done. The aim is to remove lipoma completely.
- The skin is closed with a single buried absorbable suture, which heals practically scarless.
