Antibiotics After the Lipoma Removal
Unless the lipoma is infected or located in a marginally clean area your case would be qualified as a low risk or clean case. Antibiotics are usually given to reduce the risk of infection after surgery. In a CLEAN case, you should NOT require antibiotics after the surgery. Some surgeons would even decline giving you a single intravenous dose of antibiotics before surgery.
