Lipedema is one of the most under-diagnosed fat disorders worldwide. It is estimated that 10-18 million women in the United States alone have Lipedema, which means nearly 11 percent of the female population suffer from this connective tissue disorder.
At Total Lipedema Care we’ve created the most advanced techniques to relieve pain and help those suffering from lipedema to improve their quality of life.
Lipedema is a congenital fat disorder that painfully develops on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, knees and calves. Often mistaken for obesity or lymphedema, but it is a unique condition that requires treatment from a skilled surgeon.
Having an initial consultation at Total Lipedema Care with our knowledgeable plastic surgeon, Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, is your first step into getting the medical help you need. Diet and exercise do not combat this disorder.
At Total Lipedema Care, we offer exclusive surgical and non-surgical treatment options to improve your pain and mobility. If left untreated, lipedema can progressively diminish the softness of your skin, your mobility, your self-esteem, and the quality of your life.
One of the most common questions received is whether or not our procedures are covered by insurance. Dr. Jaime Schwartz and his staff are dedicated to assisting you and streamlining your relief.
