Lipoma Fat Dissolving Injection (Non surgical Lipoma treatment)
A lipoma is defined as a slow-growing, fatty lump that’s often located between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. They are typically located on the upper arms, torso, neck, and upper thighs.
When examined, lipomas generally move easily when touched. They also feel doughy and soft, unlike malignant tumors, which are generally hard and stay in one position.
It is most common for adults who are between the ages of 40 to 60 to develop a lipoma. It is also not uncommon for those susceptible to this condition to develop multiple lipomas.
Lipomas are not usually painful, but they can be depending on their location and proximity to nerves or other sensitive tissues. They are usually small and within two inches in diameter but they can grow to larger sizes.
It is important to note whether or not there are changes in any lumps you may find. Note the size and date you discover any lump and whether or not it grows in size.
Fortunately, lipomas are benign and do not present a major threat to your health. However, they can cause discomfort or restrict movement and maybe a source of embarrassment as they do interrupt the normally even surface of the skin.
The discovery of this or similar foreign growth in one’s body may cause one to become concerned. Fortunately, our specialists at London Private Ultrasound can easily determine what this lump might be. There are also several indicators to check for at home that could provide you with peace of mind while you wait for your appointment with us.
When one suspects that he or she may have this benign tumor of fatty tissue, the best course of action is to make an appointment with a specialist at London Private Ultrasound who can assess, analyze and definitively diagnose what your unfamiliar lump might be, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
Non- surgical Treatment for Lipoma
Generally, treatment falls into three categories:
Injecting a lipoma with a Fat Dissolving product (Aqualyx) results in dissolving and eliminating the lipoma mass. This technique works best on lipomas that are less than 2 inches in diameter. Results usually occur in 3 to 4 weeks and may require multiple injections for larger lipoma masses. Complications are rare but maybe a mild temporary inflammation at the site. We can inject 3 lipomas at one appointment.
