What is Lipoma Excision?
A lipoma is a growth of fatty tissue that develops underneath the skin and appears as a smooth, soft lump or bump. While lipomas can develop at any age, they’re most commonly found in adults and more mature patients. Lipomas are generally benign but may be uncomfortable and cause cosmetic issues for some of our patients. For this reason, Dr. Siddiqui and the expert medical team at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic are happy to offer lipoma excision, or removal, for patients who wish to address their fatty deposits.

What Can I Expect During My Lipoma Excision?
Your lipoma excision will be performed by Dr. Faryal Siddiqui and our team of medical professionals in our beautiful office. Before your excision begins, Dr. Siddiqui may apply a topical or local anesthetic to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your treatment. Once numb, a small incision will carefully be made in your treatment area. Through this incision, your lipoma will be removed. The length of your excision will depend on the placement and size of your lipoma.
What Can I Expect After My Lipoma Excision?
Following your lipoma excision, Dr. Siddiqui may provide you with post-treatment care instructions. Excess drainage for one to two days following your procedure is normal and to be expected. We encourage patients to change their wound dressings often to prevent further infection. Patients may be asked to follow up with Dr. Siddiqui within a week or two of treatment.
How Much Does Lipoma Excision Cost?
The cost of your lipoma excision will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic accepts coverage from most insurance plans. To get a more accurate estimate of your treatment cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
