Lipoma, a benign tumor of adipose tissue is one of the most common benign neoplasms of the body. However, lipomas in the oral and maxillofacial region are rarely encountered. It accounts for 1 to 4% of benign neoplasms of mouth affecting predominantly the buccal mucosa, floor of mouth and tongue. We report a case of intraoral lipoma in buccal vestibule in which surgical excision was done under local anaesthesia.
