Treating Lipedema

Lipedema is a chronic condition which affects millions of women worldwide. One of the most noticeable signs of Lipedema are enlarged thighs, ankles and legs compared to the upper body. However, this condition can also affect the upper body. 

Treatment is suggested for those looking to:

Stop or Prevent Disease Progression

The removal of excess fat can help prevent and slow down the progression of diseases stemming from Lipedema.

Reduce Pain

Reduced swelling and less pain can help improve quality of life with Lipedema.

Improve Mobility

Patients frequently report improved mobility following Lipedema treatment, allowing them to enjoy more life enhancing activities such as sports and everyday activities.

Increase Self-Confidence

Many patients enjoy a boost of self-confidence after Lipedema treatment. Clothes that fit better and a more proportionate body can make a world of difference to someone suffering from Lipedema. 

Today’s most effective treatment options include:

  • Liposuction
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Nutrition therapy
  • Hormone evaluation and therapy

Ignoring Lipedema and avoiding surgical treatment is not recommended. Due to the chronic and progressive nature of Lipedema, it’s essential to seek treatment after a diagnosis or risk living a lower quality of life. As fat continues to build up in areas of the body, mobility usually declines and blood circulation becomes compromised. 

Fortunately, there are now effective treatment options available to manage symptoms and reduce the risk of future health problems.
