Re: What Kind of Doctor Removes Lipomas
I know for sure that general surgeons and cosmetic surgeons will take them out.
I have two lipomas, one large one on my neck and another on my back. I went to a general surgeon who can take them out. I ultimately decided not to go ahead with it because I couldn't get assurance from my insurance that they would cover it, as they consider most of these to be cosmetic surgery. Even though mine too was painful and very obviously not something I was doing for looks alone, they still wouldn't give me any certainty of coverage. So I bagged it.
Before I cancelled, my procedure was scheduled for one of these specialty surgical outfits, as opposed to a hospital. The doc wanted to do it there, rather than in her office because of the size.
Best of Luck!
