While there is a lot of information about Lipoma treatment on the internet, but what are the most important facts that every patient should know before getting Lipoma treatment in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah?
A lipoma is a harmless fatty tumor and is therefore often left alone. However, you can see a dermatologist have these growths removed for cosmetic reasons. Depending on several different factors including the size and number of lipoma, the skin condition, and the patient’s general health, the skin specialist makes the appropriate recommendation.
Here are three practical ways to get rid of lipomas.
Liposuction: It is best suited for people with both large and small lipomas.
During liposuction for lipomatous growth, a needle attached with a syringe is used. By making an incision in the affected area, the practitioner inserts a cannula that bluntly breaks down fat lobules. It should be pointed out that it is a minimally invasive approach, therefore local anesthesia might be used for your treatment.
Steroid injections: The rubbery lumps below the upper layer of the skin can be eradicated non-surgically. Steroid shots are injected directly into the lipoma that causes fat atrophy, ultimately shrinking the tumor overall. It is a non-invasive lipoma treatment. However, you can expect to have the treatment repeated multiple times to achieve the desired results.
Excision: Small, painful lipomas can be treated via an excision. In this treatment, the surgeon makes an incision over the lipoma and then places a curette inside the wound. This process frees lipoma from healthy skin tissues. And once released, the tumor is removed with the help of a curette.
Results are Different:
Treatment results are different for everyone. They vary depending on the type of technique used, patient’s health status, and state of the lipomas he/she has.
Note: While excision is the only permanent solution, scarring is likely to occur after it.
Choose the Clinic based on the Expertise of the Surgeon:
How fast lipoma treatment is carried out and how many lipomas are removed is not a real argument when it comes to the selection of the doctor and clinic. The thing that really matters is the skills and experience of the surgeon. The longer the surgeon has been practicing, the more knowledge and experience he has. Before getting the treatment, speak with the doctor about his/ her credentials, and background.
It has Risks that shouldn’t be Overlooked:
When performed by an experienced surgeon, it is a safe procedure.
But like other aesthetic procedures, it has potential risks and complications. The biggest risk is scarring. While this is rare but anyone becomes its victim. Other complications include swelling, bruising, bleeding, infection, etc.
It may take a lot of time to see the End Result:
While this treatment produces remarkable results, but results are not instant. This is certainly because of the side-effects. Like other procedures, the upshots of Lipoma treatment don’t show up until the side-effects subside. Also, after excision or liposuction, you will be given bandages and compression garments to wear for a few days in order to minimize the risk of infection. In a nutshell, you may not be able to see the results fast.
In Dubai, the cost of lipoma treatment is between AED 8,000 to AED 20,000 depending on the number of lipomas to remove, the reputation of the clinic, and the surgeon.
