This 44 year-old woman had a slowly growing lipoma, measuring 5 x 7 cm, on her upper right back. It was removed with Smartlipo Triplex 1440 nm laser through two tiny incisions, one on the back and one in the armpit. A small drain was placed for several days. There has been no sign of recurrence at six months.
