Lipoma surgery and the need for a surgical drain
Lipoma removal is an outpatient procedure that usually does not need a drain. The need for a drain depends on the amount of dissection, bleeding, and risk for seroma.
Will probably need a drain for large lipoma
If your tumor is that large, the need for a drain is likely. Ask your surgeon what he or she plans for lipoma removal at consultation.
