1 Cost of lipoma removal Jul 25 2009

The cost of lipoma removal varies depending on the depth of the lipoma, location, and size. Also, the type of anesthesia and use of a surgery center also may affect the final price. Simple lipomas under the skin can be removed for several hundred dollars, and more complex lesions may require several hours in a surgical suite costing thousands of dollars. Remember, as well that all specimens will require pathologic exam and that presents an additional cost.

Lipomas on the chest wall may be resected and sometimes, insurance may cover the cost including the cost of pathology examination of the specimen. Symptoms must be necessary for insurance companies to pay for resection of lipomas. Consult your plastic surgeon, chest surgeon or general surgeon regarding costs.
