Photographs before and after lipoma removal

These photographs are all of patients who have undergone removal of lipomas by Jeremy Hurren. They have all given their written consent for the photographs to appear on Jeremy Hurren’s Website. It is important to appreciate that photographs of the results of  surgery should not be considered a ‘catalogue’ from which you can choose the appearance that you would like.

Many factors determine the appearance following surgery

and most of these can not be changed. However they may be helpful in discussions with your surgeon about your expectations and what may or may not be possible  for you.

Please note: Mr Hurren will not discuss the details of the surgery these patients have had except with patients who have seen him in clinic and are planning to undergo surgery themselves.
