A lipoma is a benign tumour of fat and thinly encapsulated. It appears as slow-growing bumps of subcutaneous fat. Usually, they do not respond to changes in body fat fluctuations.

What is Multiple Lipoma

Lipomas are soft tissue deposits of fatty material that grow under the skin, causing round or oval, smooth lumps. 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.

Multiple lipomas are common in areas like forearms, torso, and back of the neck. But, it can develop in any organ of the body part.

Epidemiology

It has been reported that it occurs in 2.1 per 1,000 people. Although most lipomas are sporadic, some do have an inherited. Familial multiple lipomatosis is passed as an autosomal dominant gene and a family history of lipomas will be present. Some people have only one, whereas others develop many lipomas. Single Lipoma is common in women, whereas multiple lipomas are common in men.

Diagnosis

Most lipomas can be diagnosed only with physical examination done. However, if there is a history of rapid growth or increasing pain or other changes are noted, then preoperative studies should be performed to help and confirming the diagnosis.

When there is some doubt a Radiology evaluation can be suggested that includes ultrasound, a computed tomography (CT) scan, but it is rarely advised.

Excision of Lipoma

It is a traditional technique; incision has the same size as that of lipoma. A lipoma is removed with the capsule, which took too long to perform as well as a longer recovery. It is now very rarely used.

Liposuction of Lipoma

Now it is commonly done with the tiny incision, which is fewer than lipoma where up to 100 Lipoma can be removed in one session and one gets a faster recovery.

Combination technique is used when lipoma is larger in size. For example, large lipoma of 25 cm can be removed through a 2-3 cm incision.

  • Assessing the Multiple Lipomas:

On the day of the surgery, the discussion will be done again as your physical fitness is also evaluated and preoperative formalities are done.

  • Marking:

The Cosmetic surgeon will mark the Lipoma to use as guidelines in the procedure.

  • Anesthesia:

A small number of lipomas can be removed under local anesthesia when a large number of lipomas can be removed with the application of local anaesthesia along with sedation.

  • Infiltration:

The surgeon will inject a highly diluted anesthesia fluid into the marked area all around the lipomas, results in reduced blood loss and painless extraction.

  • Incision:

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. Liposuction is done through various technologies such as Vaser or Powerex. The aim is to remove lipoma completely.

  • Skin Closure:

The skin is closed with a single buried absorbable suture, which heals practically scarless.

After Surgery:

The dressing is done on the sutured area and a pressure dressing is applied. One needs to restrict the movements until the stitches have completely healed. It is instructed to apply scar cream after lipoma removal surgery to reduce the appearance of the scar if any.

The results will be visible immediately after theLipoma removal although you might experience some sort of swelling post-procedure, which will resolve over time.

Bleeding, irregularity of area, infection, and scarring are some of the complications associated with any surgical procedure and the same with this. The chances of risk or complications are rare or very minimal if you choose an expert plastic surgeon to have the procedure.

Multiple lipomas are a day-care procedure. Prior to discharge, you will be guided to take care of dressing yourself. One can start walking in the evening only. The patient can join office work in a day or two. But, try to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 1 to 2 weeks or should doctor’s advice before starting the same.
