Lipoma Removal Surgery
A lipoma is a benign (noncancerous) tumor made up of fat tissue. The typical lipoma is a small, soft, rubbery lump located just beneath the skin. They are usually painless and are most often found on the upper back, shoulders, arms, buttocks, and upper thighs. Less commonly, these tumors can be found in deeper tissue of the thigh, shoulder, or calf. It can be single or multiple(any number).
Most recorded Lipomas are less than one centimeter in size but some have been documented to be over six centimeters in diameter. Lipomas are a common occurrence in those aged between forty and sixty but are generally not an age specific complaint and can be found in children, teens and young adults…
Lipomas typically do not change after they form, and have very little potential for becoming cancerous. They often require no treatment other than observation. However, if a lipoma is painful or continues to grow larger, it can be removed with a simple excision procedure.
Multiple lipoma Surgery
Multiple lipoma is a condition producing more than one lipoma in a patient. Many cases of multiple lipoma are caused by genetics that indicate a family propensity toward the condition. The problem is not typically life threatening; however, many patients choose to have their lipomas surgically removed. Patients often discover after having multiple lipomas removed that more have grown in their place.
Lipomas are fatty growths just under the skin. Comprised of fatty cells, they appear most often on the neck, upper legs, torso, and upper arm. They are also common in armpits. A diagnosis of multiple lipomas occurs when several to many lipomas occur throughout the body. Lipomas are the most common cause of benign soft-tissue growths.
Types of Lipoma
While all lipomas are made up of fat, there are sub-types based on the way they appear under the microscope. Some varieties include:
- Conventional lipoma (common, mature white fat)
- Hibernoma (brown fat instead of the usual white fat)
- Fibrolipoma (fat plus fibrous tissue)
- Angiolipoma (fat plus a large amount of blood vessels)
- Myelolipoma (fat plus tissue that makes blood cells)
- Spindle cell lipoma (fat with cells that look like rods)
- Pleomorphic lipoma (fat with cells of all different shapes and sizes)
- Atypical lipoma (deeper fat with a larger number of cells)
