NY Plastic Surgeon Explains Lipoma Removal

Great video from 2010. Surgeon says he uses the squeeze method most often, with incision smaller than diameter of the lipoma.
He uses local anesthesia and patients come back as needed. He also talks about using liposuction for larger lipomas when they are large - so as to avoid large incisions.

Had "fatty" lipomas for 30 years, since I was 20. They are in my arms, thighs, knees & few in calves. My brother has them. Neither my parents or sisters had them. I'm in US.

It's sad some patients have to wait till it gets so big to have it taken out.
