Need second opinion. Which type of surgeon do I need for lipoma removal? I have 6 in my upper thigh and buttock area
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your symptoms. I would recommend seeing someone fully trained in surgical techniques, such as a general surgeon or plastic surgeon. Lipomas are benign in nearly all cases but there are intramuscular lipomas which can be difficult to remove and can cause patient's pain. That said the larger nerves of your low back and present much deeper to the body than where lipomas would exist so the risk of injury is very small. Hope this helps.
