Lipomas are benign tumors constituted by the proliferation of subcutaneous cellular tissue. Clinical picture: They can occur anywhere on the body. They are soft to the touch and are generally painless and soft in consistency. They are usually small, although sometimes they become large. Treatment: The treatment of these tumors was always surgical. Today lasers with wavelengths 980 nm, 1064 nm offer us a new therapeutic modality. The light energy of the FOX laser is transmitted through a 1 mm fiber that is introduced percutaneously through the skin. This procedure does not leave scars, there are no wounds to suture and the patient’s recovery is much faster. The mechanism of action is caloric, the light energy of the laser transforms the fat cells of the lipoma into oil, which is aspirated or drained through the minimum incision through which the laser fiber was introduced.
