Fat globules, or lipomas, are benign tumors that form under the skin. They consist of fat cells and can occur anywhere on the body. Lipomas are usually painless and harmless, but some patients may experience discomfort or wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
At Groruddalsklinikken, they offer different methods for removing fat globules, depending on size, location and patient preferences. A common method is surgical removal, where a surgeon makes a small incision in the skin and removes the lipoma using a scalpel or suction equipment. This is usually done under local anaesthetic, and the patient can usually go home the same day.
Another method offered at Groruddalsklinikken is liposuction, also known as liposculpture. This is a less invasive procedure where the fat globule is removed using a thin needle that sucks out the fat. Liposuction can be a good option for smaller lipomas or for patients who want to treat several areas at the same time.
Groruddalsklinikken has modern facilities and equipment that ensure safe and effective procedures. They also take into account the patient’s individual needs and wishes, and offer tailor-made treatment plans for each individual patient. After the procedure, the clinic provides thorough follow-up and guidance to ensure a quick and successful recovery.
It is important to note that plastic surgery, including the removal of fat balls, is a medical procedure that involves certain risks and complications. Patients should always consult with an experienced plastic surgeon before making the decision to undergo such a procedure. The surgeon will be able to assess the patient’s state of health, discuss expected results and provide the necessary information about after-treatment and rehabilitation.
