Removal of Wen - lipomas

Removal of Wen - lipomas in Poltava, Kiev and Kharkov - photo 1 Lipoma or wen is the most common benign soft tissue neoplasm, consisting of fat cells surrounded by a dense fibrous membrane. Most often it occurs under the skin, soft and elastic to the touch, encapsulated, with a diameter of 1 to 10 cm or more. Not prone to metastasis. Our Clinic of Plastic Cosmetic Surgery in Poltava offers to effectively remove this tumor, which causes aesthetic and physical discomfort. As well as warts, papillomas, hygromas and other skin defects. Clarification of the cost and appointment of patients from Kiev, Kharkov and other cities of Ukraine are carried out by phone or on the website.

Why do lipomas appear?

Judging by the reviews, experts cannot explain exactly why wen are formed on the head, face, body, internal organs and in muscle tissue. One of the main versions is a violation of fat metabolism associated with a small amount of the lipase enzyme, which is actively involved in lipolysis of fats. This factor is provoked by a defective gene. Therefore, quite often, such education is inherited.

In addition to a genetic predisposition, there are other reasons that cause the formation of a tumor:

  • changes due to age in both women and men (40-60 years);
  • pathology of metabolism and fat metabolism, when lipoproteins accumulate under the skin, creating fat clots. Which can subsequently grow with blood vessels and connective tissue, forming a lobular lipoma;
  • endocrine disorders - diabetes mellitus, obesity;
  • imbalance in the hormonal system;
  • diseases of the thyroid (hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism) and pancreas (pancreatitis);
  • liver problems (history of alcoholism);
  • frequent trauma to soft tissues.

Decreased immunity, poor diet and lack of physical activity are common factors that contribute to the disease.

Indications and contraindications for removal

Although, a lipoma is not considered a dangerous neoplasm, since it very rarely degenerates into a malignant tumor, at the first signs of a wen it is better to immediately consult a doctor. Since it can grow rapidly, simultaneously squeezing nerve endings and soft tissues. In addition to painful sensations, the tumor also causes significant aesthetic discomfort, especially on the face.

Therefore, indications for surgical removal are:

  • a noticeable cosmetic flaw;
  • uncomfortable sensations at the site of localization of the wen;
  • pain when touching or performing physical actions;
  • redness or blue discoloration of the skin;
  • changes in diameter, shape, density;
  • allocation of exudate;
  • injury to the wen.

When the operation cannot be performed:

  • period of pregnancy;
  • oncology of any localization;
  • problems with blood clotting;
  • diabetes;
  • severe pathologies of the heart and blood vessels.

Infectious diseases, fever, ARVI, influenza, inflammatory processes, especially in the affected area, are relative contraindications. And require the transfer of surgical removal. Until a person's health is fully restored and unpleasant symptoms disappear.

Preparation and course of the operation

Removal of Wen - lipomas in Poltava, Kiev and Kharkov - photo 2 Before the operation, the patient always comes for a consultation with the surgeon. Taking into account the examination data and general information about the person, the doctor prescribes a list of tests and examinations. In order to exclude possible contraindications and clearly diagnose, differentiating lipoma from fibroma, atheroma, hygroma and other similar tumor-like formations.

In addition, you can simultaneously remove other skin formations, for example, the same atheroma. And the price will be less than if both operations are done separately. Also, at the consultation, the surgeon voices the answer to the question - how much does such an operation cost? Plus, it provides comprehensive information about the course of the operation, duration, rehabilitation and other important points.

If everything is in order, analyzes and examinations are normal, then there are no special preparatory measures, as such. Only if the patient is taking drugs that affect blood clotting should they be canceled.

Usually, the tumor is excised under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. However, large lipomas or those located in specific places (in the groin, on the neck, face) are removed under general anesthesia in a hospital. In this case, the patient may be shown the observation of doctors. Then he should be in the hospital block of the Clinic for 1-2 days.

Procedure steps:

Operation time
30 minutes
Type of anesthesia
local anesthesia
Hospital or ambulatory
10-15 days
  1. Injecting a wen with an anesthetic.
  2. Excision of the tumor along with the capsule, separating it from the nearby tissues.
  3. Laying a healing medication into the cavity.
  4. Stitching.

With a large amount of intervention, the doctor can put a drainage to remove the secretion. The whole operation, on average, lasts about 30-40 minutes. Cutting out the fibrous capsule ensures that the lipoma does not grow back in its old place. In addition, it can be sent for histology to examine the contents for oncology.

Possible complications and rehabilitation

Recurrent lipoma is the most important complication after surgery. But this is possible if the capsule has not been completely removed. Feedback from our patients from all over Ukraine testifies to the opposite. Since the surgical method and the skill of the Clinic's doctors minimize this risk. Infection of the wound, divergence of its edges, abscess - are also mostly on the conscience of the surgeon. When the technology of the operation is violated or the requirements of asepsis-antiseptics.

Also, the risks are minimal, provided that the patient adheres to all postoperative recommendations:

  • do not wet the wound;
  • do not go to saunas, baths, swimming pools for 2 weeks;
  • make dressings, if necessary;
  • limit exposure to ultraviolet rays on the surface of the wound;
  • limit physical activity until healing.

In addition, the doctor can prescribe special healing and antiseptic ointments for faster healing of the intervention area. If a large lipoma has been excised, it is recommended to prescribe antibiotic therapy to avoid infection.

A complication such as the occurrence of an unaesthetic keloid scar depends more on the individual characteristics of the patient's skin. And if a hematoma has formed, then, usually, it goes away on its own during the recovery period.
