Lipoma Removal in Portsmouth

Lipomas are lumps or masses that develop under the skin, composed of abnormally grown fat cells. Although benign, they can cause discomfort if they press on nerves or other tissues.

To ensure your peace of mind, all the lipomas we remove are sent to a specialist pathologist for additional verification. Your well-being is our paramount concern.

What does the treatment for Lipoma Removal involve?

Lipoma removal starts with a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the lipoma. If beneficial, the anaesthetic will be applied using ultrasound guidance. This allows me to accurately locate the lipoma and numb the area. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, I will make a small incision in the skin, remove the lipoma, and then close the wound with soluble stitches.

Recovery from Lipoma Removal

Recovery from lipoma removal is typically quick and straightforward. Pain and swelling might occur around the surgery site, but painkillers can manage this. The dissolvable stitches used during the procedure will naturally dissolve within a week or two.

What you can expect from Lipoma Removal

Post-treatment, a showerproof dressing is applied, which stays in place for several days, aiding healing. Once the wound has healed, you’ll be left with a small scar, which usually fades over time.
