You Can Get Your Life Back
While there is no cure for lipedema, this fat disorder can be treated and managed so that you get your life back!
“. . . I have felt such a drastic improvement in how I feel. I am able to walk with no assistance. I no longer have pain in my knees, hips, ankles, or lower back. I am not as sensitive to touch. I have become active again and am looking forward to becoming the athlete I once was . . . the doctor gave me my life back, and I will be forever grateful.” ~C.C., Maryland
At this time, liposuction is the only method that we know of to remove the lipedema fat. Diet and exercise can reduce “normal” fat, but lipedema fat remains even after bariatric surgery.
One of the most successful treatments for lipedema is known as Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction (WAL). It is a highly specialized lymph-sparing liposuction that removes lipedema fat. This surgery is medically necessary, not cosmetic.
