LIPOMA

—What is a lipoma?

A lipoma is a benign mass generally made of soft fatty tissue under the skin. However, lipoma is in no way linked to obesity. It is usually well-defined, but sometimes deep and below the muscle in the torso or limbs. Its origin is unknown, except in some cases, where it is due to genetic makeup and the lipomas are numerous. Under local anesthesia, the treatment consists of making an incision in the skin and excising the entire lesion. The risk of recurrence is low, at 5%. To ensure optimal healing, a small incision is made and then closed in two planes. Large lipomas can be removed with little discomfort without general anesthesia.
