Don’t late and schedule a consultation with your surgeon because it may be a painful and ranges in size from a few millimeters to a few centimeters and originated from the follicular infundibulum.

The Lipomas are benign soft tissue tumors that are majorly a cosmetic concern. They can also be painful and uncomfortable. They can grow into the deeper muscle, push on nerves and interfere with daily or physical activities.

Lipoma & Causes

Lipoma is the most common benign soft tissue tumor occurring in 1% of the population. They consist of mature fat cells and are typically enclosed by a thin fibrous capsule. Lipomas can occur on any part of the body and usually develop superficially in the subcutaneous tissue (under the skin). They are usually painless and are most often found on the upper back, shoulders, arms, buttocks, and upper thighs.

There is speculation that a benign fatty tumor is caused by previous trauma. One theory is that injuries can cause fat to protrude through tissue planes in the body, creating a “pseudo” lipoma. Another theory is that trauma causes the release of cytokines (a cytokine is a substance that is released by cells of the immune system. Cytokines can have powerful effects on other cells of the body). These cytokines may then cause abnormal growth of fat cells. However, to date, there is no proof that trauma causes lipoma. The causes of benign fatty tumors are still poorly understood.

While the exact cause of benign or adipose tumors remains uncertain, there has been found to be a genetic link to solitary lipomas. This was found on chromosome 12.

Lipomas are removed surgically for the following reasons:

  • It is causing a cosmetic deformity
  • It is causing symptoms such as pain, numbness, or limitation in motion
  • The mass is larger than 5 cm in size.

Lipoma surgery is the excision of uncomfortable, fatty tissue growths or lipomas. These growths develop directly under the skin and are one of the most common growths seen on the body. Although benign lipomas do not pose any life-threatening concern, these growths are painful and uncomfortable. They can grow into the deeper muscle, push on nerves and interfere with daily or physical activities. This is the medical justification for surgery, and the tissue is sent to pathology to confirm it is not cancerous.

Benign fat tumor elimination of surgery often only requires local anesthesia and can be performed in approximately 30 minutes, but this depends on the size and number of the lipomas and the method of elimination.

Lipomas can be excised using two different methods:

The Liposuction Method (minimally invasive)
Liposuction allows the elimination surgery of lipoma through a very small incision. The incision required for liposuction may also be placed in a more remote inconspicuous location. Liposuction is often used on small facial adipose tumors because a favorable cosmetic result can be obtained through remote incisions.

Liposuction can be used for medium-sized (4-10cm) and large (>10cm) lipomas as well.
The disadvantage of liposuction is that residual fat cells may be left. This increases the chances that the benign or adipose tumors may regrow. Another disadvantage is that liposuction does not allow for a complete evaluation of the entire tumor.

For very large benign fat tumors, the liposuction method allows for a smaller incision. Dr. Milan Doshi will use this incision to vacuum the growth from the beneath the skin. Although this technique is less invasive, it is more difficult to guarantee the complete withdrawal of the fatty tissue.

The Excision method (Surgical treatment): Superficial benign fat tumors are commonly removed for cosmetic reasons, and hence, a cosmetically pleasing incision should be used. The incision is usually placed directly over the mass and oriented so that it is hidden by natural creases or wrinkles in the skin. This improves the cosmetic results.

This method is used more frequently. The skin is incised over the lipoma, and the fatty tissue is meticulously dissected away. The dissection technique may, in selected cases, be combined with a “press and squeeze” method. It’s analogous to delivering a baby through a small access area. After the lipoma has been completely removed from under the skin, the incision will be meticulously sutured closed with dissolving sutures.Complete surgical excision of the fat cells and fibrous capsule is highly recommended to prevent the mass from re-growing. The size and location of all benign fat tumors differ on an individual basis; your cosmetic surgeon will discuss which technique is most appropriate for you.

What Causes lipoma?

Ans: Medically, it hasn’t been proven yet what causes lipomas as some believe that physical trauma may be a reason, whereas some medical experts believe that lipomas occur more often in an inactive person, but this belief hasn’t been proven.  Lipomas do tend to run in families, however, genes play a key role in their development.

Some of the genetic conditions are listed below that may cause lipoma:

  • Gardner syndrome, a condition that causes benign tumor to form.
  • Adiposis dolorosa a condition marked by the growth of lipomas.
  • Familial multiple lipomatosis, a hereditary condition that causes multiple growths of lipomas.
  • Madelung disease, a rare condition marked by lipomas forming around the upper body.
  • Cowden syndrome, characterized by a benign tumor.

Are Lipomas Cancerous?

Ans: A lipoma is usually harmless and painless and most lipomas don’t cause cancer. But, in some rare cases, a lipoma can become a liposarcoma, a fat-cell cancer, however, treatment is needed.

Can Lipomas grow fast?

Ans: Lipomas tend to grow slowly, usually over a period of month or year. They are usually small less than 2 inches across.

Can lipomas shrink?

Ans: Steroid injections can cause lipomas to get shrink owing to local fat atrophy. Injections are better performed on lipomas less than 1 inch in diameter.

Where does a lipoma develop?

Ans: A lipoma can occur anywhere in the body, but most often develop under the skin of the body parts such as the upper back, shoulders, arms, armpits, buttocks, and upper thighs.
