I had these removed on both of my legs at the back of thighs in two separate operations. I could recover in 3 days and go about normally, but the second operation took longer to heal since the doctor did not stitch the open wounds. I have found two on my left hand one on lower left back. Probably these fat balls are harmless but certainly annoying. It all depends upon the good doctors whether to remove these without any hassle or make your life miserable for months with open bleeding wounds from operation. The second operation was done at St. Vincent Hospital in Portland Oregon and the experience was horrible.
