63 year-old man treated with lipoma removal
This 63 year-old man had an 8.5 x 8.5 cm lipoma of his right mid back for years and felt great relief when it was finally removed. The Lowen technique was used to remove it through a 2 cm incision, by debulking with power-assisted liposuction, surgical dissection free of surrounding tissue and extracting it in one piece. The cavity was inspected, confirming no residual lipoma, a seroma cath drain was inserted to collapse the cavity. Drain removal will be in one week. With the membrane dressing, he may shower and do normal activity just avoiding strenuous exercise for a week. Video of my technique can be seen on my website and YouTube.
