A lipoma is a fatty lump or tumor which can grow virtually anywhere on the body that has fat cells. Lipomas typically form between the skin’s surface and the underlying muscle, producing a doughy lump that moves easily under pressure. Though generally benign, they can cause both functional and aesthetic discomfort, depending on their location. Dr. Deziel can help address uncomfortable or aesthetically undesirable lipomas through surgical excision. The precise details of the procedure will depend on the size and location of the lipoma, as well as patient preferences, but most cases require only a small incision and minimal downtime.
