Choosing a lipoma surgeon

Regardless of whether you have a general surgeon or a plastic surgeon, you will need anesthesia to remove the lipoma.  So anesthesia is not a deciding point.

Removal

A plastic surgeon or a general surgeon could remove this lipoma. After two strokes anesthesia should be your concern
