In brief: Not always necessary

Neurofibromatosis is an ongoing disorder. The neurofibromas continue to grow throughout life and removing them is often a temporary solution as they are likely to grow back.
Surgery is often reserved for times when the neurofibromas cause pain or significant cosmetic problems.
