Many people have a benign not cancerous rubbery-feeling roundish mass of fat cells on their body called a lipoma. These fatty benign tumors are found under the skin in the fat tissue layer anywhere on the body, but most commonly on the upper back, shoulders and abdomen. Genetic conditions involving fat tissue cause nodular fat areas to form making it difficult to lose weight, called persistent fat. This persistent fat can be painful when touched. Painful lipomas, large and small, all over the body is called Dercum disease. In people with hypermobile very flexible joints, persistent fat can grow on the abdomen of a thin person. Persistent fat is highly resistant to extreme dieting, exercise, and even bariatric surgery.
Though this practice is being used extensively for nonsurgical contouring of body and dissolving localized collections of excess fat, it’s use as a treatment modality for lipomas needs further evaluation. We present a case where this technique was used for treating a lipoma, with no recurrence after 9 months of follow up. Injection lipolysis as a treatment modality for lipomas needs to be evaluated for safety and efficacy in trials on larger population. This could prove to be a very valuable adjunct to the current practice of excision, if done by a trained person in a properly selected patient. Also the side effects and the controversies regarding this procedure have been discussed in detail in the present paper. Lipomas are a commonly encountered entity in dermatology practice. Multiple lipomas in a patient are also frequently encountered. Injection lipolysis is a rapidly growing technique for dissolving fat for non-surgical body contouring.
