Lipoma Removal Surgery

lipoma removal treatmentOur lipoma removal service is carried out by fully qualified and UK accredited doctors and surgeons from the first consultation and assessment of your skin lesion to any aftercare appointments that might be required.

Our surgical team has undertaken additional training in the skills required and have many years of combined experience in removing unwanted skin lesions.

Our objective is to relieve you of the discomfort and embarrassment caused by these lumps and bumps, leaving the skin smoother with minimal scarring.

The removal of lipomas is a minor surgical procedure which is carried out in our clinics on a walk-in/walk-out basis. Using our methods and techniques, we can usually remove the lipoma on the same day as the consultation, so patients can enjoy immediate results without having a series of ime-consuming appointments.

Local anaesthetic is used so that the removal of the lipoma is pain-free by using local anaesthetic injections. After the lipoma is removed, the doctor will close the wound with a few very tiny stitches. These may be dissolvable, or might require a revisit for stitch removal. If a follow up appointment is required, the cost is included in the price of lipoma removal.

All patients will be given complete aftercare instructions to help the wound to heal quickly and neatly.

Further Information

Doctor Consultation

A consultation with one of our doctors costs £75. Prices for treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the consultation fee (note: same day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).


Every case varies and prices on this website are intended as a guide only. The price is quoted properly at face to face consultation with one of our experienced doctors. To get an idea of the cost in advance, patients can choose to send a photograph of their lipoma to and we will ask a Doctor to give an opinion. However, this does not replace a face to face consultation.

Lipoma Testing/Histology

Testing is NOT essential in all cases but if the doctor advises it, testing is not optional. Where testing is advised, we charge £95 for testing the first lipoma and £20 for each lesion in addition to the removal prices outlined above.
