Total Lipedema Care welcomes
Dr. Karen Herbst
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. Please take some time to fill out our insurance verification form and we will take care of the rest.
Total Lipedema Care is led by Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz. A board-certified plastic surgeon and world-renowned lipedema specialist, who has dedicated much of his career to raising awareness for fat disorders (like lipedema) that are highly underdiagnosed and usually misdiagnosed as morbid obesity. He is known for taking on the complex lipedema cases — giving patients more hope by alleviating the pain from this disorder.
If you have been diagnosed with lipedema, please do not lose hope. While learning that diet and exercise will not help this medical condition can make you feel hopeless, take heart in knowing that you have Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz and our team at Total Lipedema Care (TLC) is in your corner. Planning your treatment is a partnership we navigate together, which is why we want you to know that you have options in managing lipedema to help you live a normal, healthy life.
