You answered a question about a lipoma, I was not able to get the answer because it was locked. The question was: is it safe to use liposuction to remove a lipoma, size of a golfball located inner forearm, below where the arm bends. Is it safe to do liposuction in an area where there are nerves. Does liposuction affect nerve tissues or does it just "vaccuum" fat?
