How Much to Remove a Lipoma About 3 Inch Diameter?

Thank you for the question. 

When it comes to cost of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure ( quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider… are some of the potential variables involved. You will find average costs of surgery listed on this website, and on individual plastic surgeon's websites as well.

In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon.  

I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.  Best wishes.

Lipoma removal and cost

If you have insurance most insurance companies will pay for lipoma removal. If you are uninsured then the costs vary from surgeon to surgeon and location of the surgeons office and their location. Most consultations are complimentary and after a consultation your chosen surgeon will give you a quoted surgical fee.
