Liposuction is a quite popular and effective procedure for the removal of fat in localized areas of the body. It is the perfect option for those who want to improve the shape and contour of the body. It is not an alternative of dieting and exercise and can’t be used for weight loss but it is super effective for improving the results of dieting and exercise. Apart from the body contouring advantages, liposuction offers other benefits too. Here, we will discuss another important use of liposuction i.e. removal of lipomas. Yes, it can effectively remove the Lipomas in the body.
Let’s explore what exactly Lipoma is and how it can be treated by liposuction?
A lipoma is actually the growth of fat cells found just below the skin. Mostly, they are found in neck, torso, upper arms, armpits and thighs but they can also occur in other areas of the body. They can occur separately or in groups of two or more. These are non-cancerous tissues. The cause behind their occurrence is not known yet. However, it is believed that they are inherited. Even a small injury can trigger their growth. It is a misunderstanding that excess weight is the cause of their occurrence.
They occur in the form of small cysts just under the skin. These cysts are mostly movable having a soft, rubbery consistency. They do not cause any pain and either remains of the same size or grow very slowly. Their increased size makes them noticeable by others. Lipomas are diagnosed by their appearance only.
When it comes to the treatment of Lipomas, they can be removed by excision but it requires making an incision that leaves a scar behind. The reconstruction of tissues is also required after Lipomas are removed. On the other hand, liposuction is a perfect way to remove them as it requires extremely small incisions and does not cause visible scarring.
During the procedure of liposuction, a small incision is made in the skin. A small cannula is inserted into the skin through this incision. Cannula targets the Lipomas and its back and forth motion break the fat. This broken fat is later sucked out with the help of a suction tube. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is virtually painless. An extremely small cannula is used during the procedure and hence the incision made is also very small that leaves nearly invisible scar.
In short, liposuction is an effective and non-surgical procedure used for the removal of Lipomas in any area of the body. The fact that liposuction does not leave visible scarring, makes it a suitable option for lipoma removal.
