Brief Answer:
Depend on size

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

If the lipomas are lesser than 2 cms in size they do not cause any problems.Reducing body fat via exercise and diet restriction of fat will surely help to get rid of them.

If they are larger than 2 cms then there is risk of them compressing a nerve or blood vessel. Surgical excision is the only solution here. Surgerical excision is a minor invasive procedure. This can be done in few minutes with hospitalization for few hours. This surgery do not follow any complications if done in good setups.

There are no medications to reduce the size of the lipomas.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
