Familial Multiple Lipomatosis (FML)

Familial Multiple Lipomatosis (FML) Treatment

Familial Multiple Lipomatosis is an extremely rare condition characterized by multiple lipomas, generally painless, distributed throughout the body and extremities. Diagnosis occurs when it is found in more than one family member, sometimes over numerous generations.

 

Symptoms

Lipomas found in areas not on the head or shoulders are a primary symptom of Familial Multiple Lipomatosis. The lipomas can occur on the hypodermis, the lower layer of the skin, and connective tissues. They tend to be painless, but can cause irritation. Progression of lipomas can lead to disfigurement, impaired mobility, or even disability.

 

Diagnosis

Physical examination and medical history review by a licensed physician specializing in lipid fat disorders

 

Treatment of Familial Multiple Lipomatosis

  • In the past, surgical removal was always the option, however patients end up with unsightly scarring.

  • Liposuction was utilized to minimize scarring, however it is very difficult to remove the entire tumor.  If the entire tumor is not removed, the risk of the mass recurring increases greatly.

  • We have a process that converts the tumor into a liquid consistency, and can be removed by suctioning through a small incision.  Dr. Volshteyn has contrived a cutting-edge method of removing these tumors with ultrasonic destruction with minimal incisions.

  • Minimal scarring

  • Little to no discomfort or downtime

  • Ideal for removal of multiple lipomas

  • Can be done under local anesthesia

  • In many cases no sutures are needed
