Why do I have multiple lipomas
Although this condition is benign, many patients concerned with cosmesis seek removal of individual tumors. Treatment can include simple excision, endoscopic removal, or liposuction if large.

As far as removing them, when I have a patient with this many we try to do it all at once - although that may require a trip to the hospital and general anesthesia (it's too painful to do that many at once under local anesthesia). This many could probably be done in 2 or 3 sessions in the office setting - that depends on you, your pain tolerance, etc.
But they can certainly all be removed. I'd suggest that you seek additional opinions from board-certified plastic surgeons.
Sorry for the discomfort you're having but I hope that this has helped, and good luck,
