Lipoma removal surgery
Laser lipoma removal is an up-to-date method of removing a benign tumor. It minimizes the risk of its re-occurrence and the likelihood of lumps, hematomas and inflammatory processes.
As a rule, laser removal of a fatty tumor is of esthetic nature since the defect looks unattractive and causes a lot of psychological discomfort. The tumor may grow with time and transform into malignant liposarcoma.
Therefore, it is recommended to get rid of the fatty tumor at initial stages. The good thing is that laser provides an effective, painless and safe solution.
A lipoma (fatty tumor) is a mobile, round or elongated subcutaneous tumor consisting of fatty tissue. It may be located on any part of the body with fatty tissue deposits — on the head, neck, trunk, legs or arms.
Laser lipoma removal involves complete enucleation of the neoplasm along with its capsule from the subcutaneous tissue. If a lipoma is just cut off, it may reappear with larger localization.
Carbon dioxide laser enables the removal of the lipoma along with the capsule and complete destruction of its remaining fragments. It does not affect healthy tissues targeting the defective area point-wise.
Indications for lipoma removal surgery
Laser lipoma removal is performed in the following cases:
- significant cosmetic defects;
- tumor growth;
- pain sensations on pressing.
Despite the simplicity of the operation, it has a number of contraindications:
- malignant oncology;
- diabetes mellitus;
- inflammatory processes;
- herpetic lesion around the tumor localization;
An oncology surgeon performs the operation after identifying the defect and after the patient has taken all tests. In case of a small tumor local anesthesia is used, and general narcosis is required in case of a larger lesion.
Using a surgical laser, the doctor dissects the skin, enucleates the lipoma with all its fragments, coagulates the edges and sutures them with cosmetic stitches.
Duration of lipoma removal surgery
Depending on the lipoma size, the manipulation lasts from 15 to 30 minutes. After it is over, a plaster or sterile bandage is applied.
