do u have a family history? have u got ur lipid profile done? if not get ur lipid profile done in a fasting state and if normal , just leave the lipomas alone. u dont need to treat unless u are cosmetically concerned and if the lipomas are at cosmetically objectionable sites, the only option is to surgically get them removed , which is just an out patient procedure. dietary modifications wont help the lipomas.

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurang Krishna's  Response
I do not think that getting the lipid profile done is a good idea as there is no correlation between lipomas and serum lipid levels. You can leave the lipomas alone or get them surgically removed. Surgery is simple and doesnt leave any significant scar.
