Have lipomas safely removed at the Noah Clinic

A lipoma is a benign growth of fatty tissue. These palpable and visible lumps lie under the skin and occur mainly on the neck, arms, back or thighs. Lipomas are usually not threatening, but they can cause aesthetic discomfort as well as pain. At the Noah Clinic, we can usually remove a lipoma easily and without complications.

Prof. Dr. Noah removes lipomas during a minor operation. For small lipomas, a local anaesthetic is usually sufficient. In the case of many or very large lipomas, on the other hand, a Liposuction the gentler alternative. Which type of liposuction promises the best result is assessed by Prof. Dr. Noah from patient to patient. The removal of large lipomas is usually performed under general anaesthesia and takes about two hours. Patients can usually go home the same day.

Treatment:outpatient / inpatient
Surgery duration:1 - 2 hours

A lipoma is usually not dangerous. Nevertheless, we want to be sure that it is a benign change. For this reason, we examine every removed lipoma for fine tissue in our laboratory.

Lipoma surgery: Behaviour after the procedure

The removal of a lipoma is an uncomplicated procedure in most cases. After lipoma removal, bruising and slight swelling may occur. These will subside over the next few days - light cooling can support the process. Pay attention to good hygiene in the operated area. After lipoma surgery, the scars are usually very fine. With consistent scar care, they are hardly visible later.
