Lipomas are rare in oral and maxillofacial regions although they are the most common tumors of mesenchymal origin in the human body. However, its occurrence in oral cavity is very rare it accounts for 1 to 4% of benign neoplasms of mouth affecting predominantly the buccal mucosa, floor of mouth and tongue. They slowly enlarge and they are known to grow to large sizes, thus causing mastication and speech difficulties. We report a case of 63-year-old female patient with intraoral lipoma in buccal vestibule in which surgical excision was done under local anesthesia.
