A lipoma is generally a benign collection of fat cells creating a fatty tumor that can grow anywhere on the body. Lipomas feel doughy or rubbery and typically form beneath the skin and above the underlying muscle. Some lipomas can be uncomfortable and create a cosmetic concern.For small lipomas, Dr. Shock can remove them in a simple awake outpatient procedure with little to no downtime following. During the procedure Dr. Shock will numb the area with local anesthetic and remove the lipoma in its entirety, leaving only a small scar. Occasionally patients will have multiple lipomas and may require many to be removed at one time. During the patient's consultation, Dr. Shock can help determine the best way to remove the lipoma(s).
