A flesh-colored subcutaneous nodule on the back, extremities or elsewhere on the body. It may be singular or multiple. The overlying skin is movable and free of the lesion. Lipomas may be small in size or grow to large size. When there is deformity or pain, they can be surgically excised. Otherwise, when asymptomatic, they can be left alone.
If desired can be accomplished with surgical excision and sutured closure. Lipo-suction has been done successfully if the connective tissue stroma is not well-formed.
