Lipoma treatment options

Because lipomas are surface growths, they are highly treatable with very little discomfort. There are a variety of lipoma treatment options. The method chosen will depend upon on your individual case. When you arrive for your initial consultation and examination, your doctor will take the time necessary to discuss these options so the best decision can be made.

Steroid injections

Steroid injections can be used to reduce the size of lipomas however this method of treatment rarely eliminates the lipoma completely.


Because lipomas are made of fatty tissue, liposuction can be utilized as way to get rid of most of their mass. Unfortunately, much like steroid injections, liposuction may not be successful in removing the entirety of the lipoma.

Surgical Removal

By far the most effective treatment for lipomas is surgical removal. Lipoma surgery is a brief outpatient procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia. Because lipomas are typically located directly beneath the skin, the incision is not deep and only leaves a thin scar. The doctors at the Lipoma Center Los Angeles are trained in cosmetic plastic surgery techniques, giving them the ability to minimize your scar even more. Lipoma surgery is short, generally lasting less than an hour. Patients can go home shortly after their surgery. All in all, lipoma surgery is a remarkably easy and comfortable procedure, which usually provides complete relief to the patient.
