In-office Lipoma Removal

These are typically slow-growing, fatty lump that's most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. They usually are not tender and move readily with slight finger pressure. They tend to run in families and therefore likely genetics play a role in their development. 

Signs and symptoms: 

  • They commonly occur in the neck, shoulders, back, abdomen, arms and thighs.
  • They are generally small, soft and doughy to the touch. They typically are less than 2 inches (5 centimeters) in diameter, but they can grow.
  • Lipomas can be painful if they grow and press on nearby nerves or if they contain many blood vessels.


  • Surgical excision in the office under local anesthetic
