Removal Of Multiple Lipomas

You most likely have the diagnosis of familial lipomatosis (other family members will have the same problem). Lipomatosis is believed to be a dominant trait in which multiple lipomas are present. Most are discrete, encapsulated lipomas on the trunk and extremities
Although this condition is benign, many patients concerned with cosmesis seek removal of individual tumors. Treatment can include simple excision, endoscopic removal, or liposuction if large. Liposuction, whether laser Liposuction or traditional will leave some of the lipoma cells behind which over time will probably recur though it may take years.
The cost depends on if it is done in the office or surgery center, type of anesthesia, the time it takes to remove them, experience and qualifications of the surgeon, and geographic location.

Many lipomas can be removed through small holes made with "punches", small circular blades that remove a small piece of skin like a cookie cutter removes dough. If the lipomas are encapsulated or not adherent to the underlying tissues they can usually be squeezed through these small holes, leaving only small scars. Usually each small lipoma removal takes only 5-10 minutes,
