There are two forms of lipomas: simple and complex.
Simple lipoma is a discrete fatty tissue that is floating in the soft tissue under the skin. They are easy to remove and they do not recur.
Complex lipoma is a fatty tissue that is tethered to the soft tissue and/or muscle under the skin. They are more difficult to remove and they tend to recur more often.
The cost for Lipoma surgeries are $150 for one lipoma.
Here is a video demonstrating surgery to remove a simple lipoma and a complex lipoma. Surgery generally takes around 5-10 minutes and it can be safely performed under local anaesthesia in Eastwood Skin Cancer Clinic.
