Lipedema is a condition in which fat excessively builds up in the upper arms and legs. If left untreated, lipedema can cause immobility of the limbs and lead to other health conditions. There are a number of treatment options available, and our knowledgeable and compassionate team of experts will help you determine the most suitable choices for you and enable you to make the best decision. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides treatment of lipedema to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Dr. McCluskey has had successful outcomes in treating lipedema patients with both non-invasive and surgical techniques, or a blend of both. Treatment options available include:
- Liposuction: A procedure that removes excess fat surgically
- Lymphatic drainage: A specialized massage technique that helps the body absorb fat
- Nutrition therapy
- Hormone evaluation and therapy
Are Results Permanent?
Results from any method of treatment for lipedema are not permanent. Liposuction offers the most immediate results and relief. A healthy diet and active lifestyle must be followed to continue seeing results from lipedema. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides treatment of lipedema to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
