Liposuction for lipomas.

J Dermatol Surg Oncol. 1985 Nov;11(11):1070-4.

Six cases of giant lipomas were treated by liposuction surgical removal. The
method involves only a 1-cm incision and insertion of a liposuction cannula. The
fibrous stroma of the lipoma may be more difficult to remove. Liposuction is a
safe and easy method of removing giant lipomas.
