Is Lipoma Surgery Dangerous?

Hello Black Bear, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Lipomas are lumps of fat or benign tumors derived from fat that grows between the layers of the skin and muscles. These lumps usually protrude above the surface of the skin, the funds will feel soft and can move if moved.
Lipomas are benign that are not dangerous so do not require special treatment. But one of the ways that is done to remove lipomas is by surgery. Surgery is performed if the complaint or lipoma is disturbing or you feel uncomfortable
However, there are steps that can be taken if the lipoma causes discomfort, pain or irritation, or the lipoma continues to grow in size. Generally the type of action taken will depend on the amount and size of the lipoma. For lipomas that have a large enough size and more numbers, usually will be done in the operating room with general anesthesia. And before this general anesthesia is carried out, several checks are needed to ensure that the operation is performed. Of course, every action will have certain complications. However, surgical removal of a lipoma rarely causes complications and in most cases it will be safe to do. But the thing to remember is that the removal of the lipoma is done if the benefits are greater or if the lipoma is bothering you. For this reason, discuss with your surgeon about the procedure. And after the removal of the lipoma surgery, lipomathy usually will not grow back after being removed, but can cause side effects such as bruising and scars.
