Lipoma (Benign Tumor)Excision

A lipoma is a benign tumor composed of fatty tissue. Lipomas are soft to the touch, usually movable, and generally painless. Lipomas are usually small in size but can grow to be six centimeters or more. Treatment typically isn't necessary, but the surgeon may recommend surgical excision of the Lipoma if the location of the lipoma bothers the patient, if the Lipoma is painful, or if the Lipoma is simply growing in size.

Procedure Description 

  • The procedure may be performed under local, conscious sedation, or general anesthesia
  • An incision is made along the lipoma, through which the lipoma is excised
  • A drain might be placed after the excision of large lipomas
  • The incision site is then closed


  • Sutures are typically removed 7 days after the surgery
  • There may be some bruising, swelling, and discomfort initially
  • The patient should avoid vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for 2-4 weeks
