What is the safest way to get rid of lipoma: Liposuction or surgery? The lipoma is on the left hip and 10 cm. in size.
Both Liposuction and surgery to remove lipoma are safe
Excision allows for complete removal. It requires a longer incision and thus longer scar and provides a specimen for histologic evaluation if that is desired.

Trade off between Lipoma removal with excision versus lliposuction
That is a difficult question to answer.
Lipomas can be removed with:
- Wide excision (the standard of care)
- Squeeze technique
Any technique which leaves a portion of the lipoma behind results in a higher risk of recurrence or possible (small risk) of misdiagnosing a liposarcoma
Minimally invasive techniques have generally lower risks of scarring.
