Minimal Incision and Power-assisted Liposuction Removal of Lipomas

Minimal Incision and Power-assisted Liposuction Removal of Lipomas

Lipomas of any size can be removed through a small incision either directly or with the assistance of power-assisted liposuction to debulk the lipoma and then remove it completely under direct vision using the technique of dissection and extrusion.

Smaller lipomas can be removed with a small incision made with a #11 blade only, basically a puncture with a small angulated blade that makes an opening about 3/8”. Lipomas between 5 and 12 cm (2.5” to 5”) in diameter, can be removed with an incision less than an inch.
