Lipoma, a benign tumor of adipose tissue is one of the most common benign neoplasms of the body. However, its occurrence in oral cavity is very rare. It accounts for 1-4% of benign neoplasms of mouth affecting predominantly the buccal mucosa, floor of mouth and tongue. We report two cases of intraoral lipoma both of them in buccal vestibule. An excisional biopsy with diode laser was performed and histopathology examination revealed proliferation of mature adipocytes arranged in lobules and separated by fibrous septa in the first case, and the second case was a fibrolipoma.
