What to expect during Lipoma Excision
The surgeon will make an incision with a 15 or 11 blade loaded on a #3 knife handle. They will use metz or tenotomy scissors with an adson to dissect down to the lipoma. A lot of the time the lipoma pops right up. Senns or skin hooks will be used to retract. Once the lipoma has been excised, the wound will be irrigated and the surgeon will suture it closed.
