The lipids are lumps that develop in the subcutaneous tissue, that is, just beneath the skin. Τhe lipid is a benign tumor, consisting of mature adipocytes and located in any part of the body where there is fat. The clinical picture is that of a well-circumscribed, round, soft, agile, sometimes lobed, asymptomatic tumor, of varying size. The overlapping skin is normal. The lipids are single or multiple (often syndromes). The multiple, symmetrically located in the roots of the limbs, the buttock, the abdomen, the throat are possibly related to hereditary dermatoses.
The treatment of Fat is primarily surgical. This is an oncological operation, that is, an intervention aimed at the complete removal of the tumor and not the partition and partial excision.
The procedure starts with a careful design of the area where the lipid appears, always respecting the anatomy of the tissues, protecting the adjacent noble elements (vessels, nerves, ligaments).
Once the lipid has been removed, the area is examined thoroughly for satellite tumors and then the trauma is closed to anatomical layers.
Extremely thin sutures are placed on the skin and the incisions are covered with special self-adhesive tapes.
The tissue slide is always sent for biopsy.
In this way we are diagnostically very safe since we have the pathogenic accreditation for the identity of the tumor we have removed.
For more information about the surgical procedure and pre-operative instructions, schedule an advising appointment without charge with a Doctor of the Department.
