Lipoma (fatty tumor) Removal
Sometimes, small fatty tumors develop under the skin from previous trauma. While they don't always have to be removed, they may grow and become more noticeable. For that reason, you may want it removed. If you have a high deductible health plan, it may be less expensive to have it removed in a surgeon's private office so that your out-of-pocket expenses are less when compared to having it removed at a hospital. A lipoma can be removed via liposuction or through a larger incision.
