What is it?

It is an outpatient surgical procedure that consists of removing a fat tumor called a lipoma.

A lipoma removal should be performed if:


  • You feel discomfort in the area

A physical examination (palpation) must be carried out and sometimes a specific pre-surgical examination such as soft tissue ultrasonography must be carried out.
