earlier, I asked you a question regardin is it safe to use liposuction to remove a lipoma and would it affect the nerves? You replied the risk for it affecting the nerves is low. How about removing the lipoma by surgery, is there a risk that the nerves would be affected, and is the risk lower than by liposuction?
Hi there,

The risk of nerve injury is more with surgery.
Hoever the overall risk is low.
