Best Method to Remove Huge Number of Lipomas?

Options for Multiple Lipomas
Although this condition is benign, many patients concerned with cosmesis seek removal of individual tumors. Treatment can include simple excision, endoscopic removal, or liposuction if large. Liposuction, whether laser Liposuction or traditional will leave some of the lipoma cells behind which over time will probably recur though it may take years. There is nothing special about laser lipo vs regular liposuction to take care of your problem. I published the first article on lipo removal of large lipomas and believe this technique can be used knowing that you will probably have to repeat it when the lipomas eventually recur. However, this may be a reasonable option to minimize the number of scars.

Removal of multiple lipomas
Multiple lipomas are commonly encountered and I tend to stage the lipoma removals, first with the large ones, and then multiple smaller ones.

Large Number of Lipomas Is Unsual
You need to be evaluated for any fat storage disorders or other metabolic conditions that could cause this condition. If it is determined that it is not related to any other illness or metabolic condition and indeed the masses are lipomas, then your best bet is liposuction of the lipomas to minimize the scarring.
