Title

Endoscope-Assisted Suction Extraction of Lipomas.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

The blunt technique of suction-assisted lipectomy partially evolved while proving to be an efficient, albeit blind, method for the removal of lipomas. Larger or poorly encapsulated tumors were acknowledged to be at a greater risk for recurrence probably because of an unrecognized residua. Just as liposuction has enhanced body-contour surgery because of the potential for smaller and fewer scars hidden in strategically camouflaged locations, the identical advantages are possible for liposuction extraction of lipomas, with a greater assurance for their entire removal via direct visualization using a surgical endoscope.
