BACKGROUND Lipomas are very common benign neoplasms, which constitute 99% of all adipose-derived tumors. [] Key MethodMETHODS A total of 17 lipomas were treated. The procedure involved a high-frequency ultrasound-guided injection. A maximum of 3 injections per a lipoma were performed. High-frequency ultrasound was used for assessing the size of lipomas and monitoring treatment-induced changes to the lipomas and adjacent tissue. RESULTS Response to treatment was achieved in all cases.

Lipolysis of a painful lipoma with ozone: the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and quantification of the treatment
Ozone-oxygen therapy can be an effective treatment for lipodystrophies through splitting fatty acids by reducing the chains and making them hydrophilic, the removal of interstitial edema due to cellulite or poor circulation, and also through providing more oxygen which improves local metabolism and venous/lymphatic circulation.
