Lipoma Removal at Rippon Medical Services

We all strive for a smooth and clear complexion, but sometimes, the body has other plans. For many, lipomas, that form under the skin, can emerge without warning. Typically seen on the neck, back, or shoulders, these may be a cause for concern. 

At Rippon Medical Services, we understand your concerns. If you've been trying to get rid of lipoma on your face, neck, back, arms, legs or anywhere else, you've come to the right place. 

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Rippon, we offer a precise and effective lipoma treatment to address these benign lumps, letting your skin regain its smooth texture.

Are you wondering how to remove a lipoma? With our exceptional lipoma surgery, you will be rid of it in no time, with utmost safety.

Understanding Lipoma

Originating from an overproduction of fat cells, lipomas start small and can grow over time. The good news? The chances of them turning malignant are extremely rare. However, many prefer removing them for cosmetic reasons regardless.

Dr. Rippon and his team believe in providing comprehensive care to all patients. If after the procedure, Dr Rippon feels necessary, he may have the removed lipoma evaluated pathologically – the only way to understand its nature completely.

Our Lipoma Treatment Process

Choosing the best lipoma treatment option can feel overwhelming. At Rippon Medical Services, we break down the process into easy steps to ensure clarity and comfort:

Expert Consultation: Your journey begins with a detailed discussion with Dr. Rippon. In this session, he'll assess the lipoma, helping decide if it's right for removal.

Personalised Treatment: Every lipoma is unique. Whether you're dealing with a lipoma on your face or elsewhere, our treatment approach is tailored to your needs.

Surgical Excision: For the actual removal, you will need a lipoma surgery. This method is safe and effective, ensuring the entire lipoma is removed. There may be a small scar, but with time, this often becomes barely noticeable.

Post-Procedure Care: Our commitment to your well-being doesn't end with the surgery. Dr. Rippon will guide you on aftercare, ensuring optimal healing. Plus, a follow-up review ensures everything is progressing as it should. What’s more, if you have questions after the procedure, we will still be here for you.

What is a Lipoma?
Lipoma is a benign (non-cancerous) tumour of fatty tissue, they are soft, fatty lumps that grow under the skin. Lipomas are caused by an overgrowth of fat cells that can be found anywhere in the body but typically found on the neck, back or shoulders. They typically start small and gradually enlarge over time. Malignant transformation of  lipomas into liposarcomas is extremely rare (and often controversial) Dr Rippon will make a clinical decision at time of removal and may advise that the lipoma be sent for pathologic evaluation (which is the only way to make a definitive diagnosis).
