Minimally Invasive Lipoma Removal Surgery
An Overview of the Case:
A lipoma is a fatty tissue lump those forms just beneath the skin’s surface. When you touch a lipoma, it moves freely and feels rubbery, not rigid. Lipomas rarely need treatment because they rarely cause pain or health issues.
Unless a lipoma is bothering you, it is typically not necessary to treat it. Nonetheless, your doctor would advise that you have regular check-ups to ensure that the lump does not grow or change in any way. Your doctor may recommend that you get the lipoma removed if it is troubling you, making you uncomfortable, or if it is expanding.
Surgery is the only treatment that will eliminate lipoma completely. If you decide to have the lipoma removed, you should do so while it is still small since the larger the lipoma becomes, the more difficult it is to remove. Before surgery, a local anaesthetic is usually used to numb the area, while larger lipomas may necessitate general anaesthesia via minimal invasive removal.
Liposuction may be recommended as an alternative to lipoma surgery to eliminate the lipoma. In this process, the lump is extracted through a needle and into a big syringe.
Mr. Nandakishore, a 30-year male patient, came to Redefine Plastic Surgery & Hair Transplant Centre with a complaint of multiple painless lumps all over the body easily moving under the skin. Also, the patient complaint of hand movement and numbness. After a complete examination, Dr. Harikiran Chekuri, a skilled plastic surgeon in Hyderabad, recommended ultrasound & FNAC.
The FNAC of the swelling revealed mature fat cells suggestive of lipoma. Dr. Harikiran briefed the patient about the condition. After taking informed consent, Dr. Harikiran ensured the patient receives safe and advanced lipoma removal in Hyderabad. The patient was operated on under general anesthesia. The postures were changed from supine to lateral and prone depending on the location of lipomas.
Multiple lipomas weighing 700 grams were removed successfully. Doctor closed the wound by applying pressure dressing. The specimen was sent for Histopathology; the report showed the presence of fat cells. The pressure dressing was applied for three days continuously.
Dr. Harikiran instructed the patient to:
- Keep the wound clean and dry.
- Changethe bandage if it gets wet or dirty.
- Clean the wound daily if stitches (sutures) were used.
- Keep the area clean and dry if surgical tape closures were used.
- Control pain using OTC pain relievers unless additional medication is prescribed

After proper diagnosis, Dr. Harikiran explained the condition and the need for surgery. Dr. Harikiran removed the lipomas safely and effectively. I am extremely satisfied with the treatment. Now, I can comfortably move my hands, and there is no numbness. I am thankful to Dr. Harikiran Chekuri.”
