Liposuction vs Surgery For Canine Lipomas

Does your dog have fatty tumors?  Have they been aspirated (needle) by your vet to be sure they are fatty tumors and not possible cancerous tumors?

I have recently heard of liposuction to get rid of lipomas and avoid surgery, (which is more dangerous when dealing with anesthesia).

Here are some good sites to check out.

I have a friend who will have this procedure done on her Labrador in a few weeks and I will take note of the results, recovery, etc. and update here soon.
