Welcome to City Dermatology Clinic, your trusted partner for professional lipoma removal in the heart of London. Our team, comprised of London’s leading dermatologists, specialises in the safe, efficient, and minimally invasive extraction of lipomas. We are dedicated to providing you with a smooth, discreet, and pain-free treatment experience.

A lipoma is a benign, fat-filled tumor that forms under the skin, presenting as a soft, often movable lump. These growths can appear anywhere on the body and are typically slow-growing and painless. While the exact cause of lipomas is not fully understood, they are thought to be linked to genetic factors.

 

Despite being generally harmless, lipomas can be unsightly and, if allowed to grow, may lead to discomfort or potential complications. They are characterised by their longevity, often remaining for years without resolution.

 

Causes and Symptoms

The exact cause of lipoma formation is not fully understood, but they are believed to be related to genetic factors and may arise from minor injuries. Lipomas are often asymptomatic, meaning they usually do not cause pain or discomfort. However, if a lipoma grows on nerves or becomes large enough, it may produce discomfort or pain.

Understanding the Procedure

Lipoma surgery is a straightforward, minimally invasive procedure aimed at removing benign fat-filled tumors from under the skin. At City Dermatology Clinic, our expert surgeons utilise precise techniques to ensure the complete removal of the lipoma, prioritising patient safety and cosmetic outcomes.

 

The Surgical Approach

The procedure typically begins with a detailed assessment to determine the lipoma’s size and location. Local anesthesia is administered to the area to ensure a pain-free experience. Depending on the lipoma’s characteristics, our surgeons may opt for excision, where the lipoma is carefully cut out, or liposuction, for less invasive removal of softer, smaller lipomas.

 

Recovery and Aftercare

After your procedure, you’ll embark on a swift journey back to your daily life, thanks to our minimally invasive techniques that ensure minimal downtime. But our care doesn’t stop when the procedure is complete. We offer a comprehensive, free aftercare service designed to ensure your recovery is smooth, rapid, and comfortable.

Lipoma Removal FAQs

How prevalent are lipoma?

Lipoma is a benign slow, growing fatty lump that occurs in every 1 of 1000 people. They can develop at any age; however, they are most common between the age of 40-60 and are often found more in women.

How long does a lipoma removal procedure take?

While we can provide a lipoma removal on the same day of consultation, the removal usually takes 30-60 minutes. Our highly experienced dermatologists have been conducting this removal for at least 10 years, making it a swift and pain free procedure.

Is the removal of a lipoma painful?

As our removals are carried out by an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon using local anaesthetic, it’s likely you won’t experience any pain. If you’re to feel anything, it’s likely a bit of pressure or a pushing sensation of the surrounding area of your lipoma.

How long does it take to heal from lipoma removal?

Often, the stitched wound from a lipoma removal takes around a week to heal. During the healing period, you should not do anything strenuous and avoid heavy exercise. We provide a free follow up to ensure the area has healed.

What does skin look like after the removal of a lipoma?

Following a lipoma removal, your skin will heal with minimal scarring. There could be a little bit of bruising, and your skin may be slightly raised after surgery; however, it will subside over time.
