Hey Durable...I am back from the surgery. I swear to god I didnt know it was suchhhh an easy process. Taking out a lipoma only takes about taking a leak. Its that simple.
I decided to do it in India, because Canadian doctors and medical system, although may look like free. But, you gotta wait and your family physician should refer you to a surgeon. It just takes time. And it is NOT covered by the insurance no matter how much I try. Some of the procedures in the US are covered by insaurance that are NOT covered by the insurances in Canada.
Besides its wayy too expensive for a general surgeon to get things out for biopsy, let alone a pastic surgeon. Last time I heard, a cosmetic surgeon wanted 800 dollars to take out one lipoma using the punch squeeze method. Just one. If you want to remove like 10, that is ridiculous.
I am basically Indian, I have roots in India. I come here for vacation. I found that many doctors are EXTREMELY talented out there, not just judging how they do simple lipoma excision. But, the major surgeries and success rates are amazing.
I met this cosmetic surgeon who agreed to do it for a package price. that came out 400 Canadian dollars in total. Thats awesome. I removed 13 lipomas in total, all the major ones are gone. Although Im not happy about the 2 lipomas that are still on my right forearm near the wrist. Not very big, not visible..only visible after a hard arms work out. He marked to remove those 2 but at the end he didnt. He said, theyre too small, lets ignroe them. I dont know if its entirely true he said the skin is very thick on the outside of the wrist and it could leave an ugly scar. I said okay. Oh btw the surgery method was, small line incision over it, squeeze em out, and internal dissolving surtures, and then pasted a band aid over the top. Like someone posted as the best method to get minimum scars. AWESOME!! his is why we need to go to a a plastic surgeon.
But overall, I dont think I am going to worry about removing lipomas ever again. I left the ones on my leg and abs alone, saving it for Darryls test.
Durable, I would highly recommend you stop by India and get it done, theyre very good and speak better English than you and I lol
