Lipedema in the United States

 

Lipedema is one of the most underdiagnosed fat disorders in the United States today, which is doing a great disservice to many men and women (mainly women) who have it. One in nine women have lipedema and do not realize it — often times being diagnosed as being overweight or morbidly obese. At Total Lipedema Care, we know there is more to the story.

 

The medical community is still researching why and how a patient develops lipedema — we do know that it runs in families and presents itself in times of hormonal change, such as during puberty, pregnancy, menopause, or stress. The fat that develops (on the upper arms, abdomen, hips, upper buttocks, thighs, knees, and calves) is fluid-filled, has a thicker consistency (nodules), and has an abnormal growth pattern that can create folds and hanging flaps over the skin.

Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, provides lymphatic-sparing surgeries and medical treatments for patients with this disorder to relieve the pain and pressure built up under the skin, to improve the movement and mobility, to decrease the chances and risks of skin infections, and much more. With his Schwartz Rapid Recuperation™ technique of using total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA), surgical patients can awaken from surgery with fewer complications. Since he will not use a general anesthetic, you will not have a breathing tube inserted or endure gases that cause severe side effects. Dr. Schwartz has a keen eye for detail and for recognizing lipedema for what it is — a medical condition that needs treatment with compassion and perseverance.

 

Dr. Schwartz is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an internationally recognized expert in plastic surgery, specializing in advanced surgical techniques. His distinctive approach combines a "patient-first" practice with the safest and most unsurpassed, highly sought-after plastic surgical procedures available in the world. Known for his innovative procedures as much as his commitment to patient safety and education, Dr. Schwartz develops guidelines through committees in conjunction with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and has been honored for
his excellence in patient care with multiple "Physician Excellence Awards." He is a "Top 100 Core Plastic Surgeon" on RealSelf.com, a rising star in Southern California's "Top Doctors," and a featured doctor in the hit TV shows Botched and The Doctors.

Collaborative Lipedema Research 

Total Lipedema Care works in collaboration with endocrinologist Dr. Karen L. Herbst, a leading lipedema and rare fat disorders researcher in the United States. She has dedicated her entire career to the study of congenital and genetic fat disorders in men and women. Her unyielding efforts in the research of lipedema, Dercum's disease, Madelung's disease, and familial multiple lipomatosis keeps her at the forefront of the rare fat disorder research and finding answers for people living with the disorders. Dr. Schwartz and Dr. Herbst would like not only to continue to research this disabling disorder but also to educate other doctors and nurses (when possible) on how to examine fat and to identify adipose disorders instead of diagnosing it as morbid obesity.

"Dr. Jaime Schwartz helped me get my self confidence back after my major weight loss when he performed a fleur de lis tummy tuck, 360 lipo, a thigh lift & fat transfer to my butt (bbl) to give me back what I had lost after my weight loss surgery! I bought my 1st bikini in 31 years & wore it on the beach thanks to his work!!! He is by far one of the most genuine people I have ever met & his staff are just as awesome as he is! He takes his time explaining everything about the procedures as well as what to expect during recovery. Even though my insurance covers breast reductions, I'll be booking mine with Dr. Jaime Schwartz!!!"

"An angel, Dr. Schwartz is an angel and absolutely hands down the best body surgeon out there. I've met them all. I had a terrible accident which resulted in me needed multiple fat transfers and scar tissue broken up. Dr. Schwartz and his entire team have had my back since day one. There are no words to express how far they have gone for me. Dr. Schwartz has been working with me for over a year and his kindness, attention to detail, and knowledge is unparalleled. He didn't want to operate on me for months until my body healed from a previous unfortunate revision surgery by another doctor. He truly just wants what's best for his patients. He also diagnosed me with lipedema and it shocked me. I had never heard of lipedema before. Everything about my body suddenly made sense. Why my legs always had pain, why I couldn't lose weight, and why I always felt so insecure about my legs. He is thee surgeon for body in Beverly Hills. I've met every top surgeon in the area and his office just feels like family. Luxury, meets medical, meets beauty, meets family. I'm so grateful for Dr. Schwartz, Sasha, Nicole, and Dawn! Thank you for helping me get my life back!"

"Dr. Schwartz and his staff are the best. I went to six consults with plastic surgeons and immediately knew when I met him that he was the surgeon for me. After extreme weight loss, Dr. Schwartz has done fleur de lis abdominoplasty, bra-line back lift, and mastoplexy for me. The whole experience has been great. He takes the time to explain everything and the process went very smoothly. I was up and feeling good the day after surgery. The results are amazing. He and his staff take the time to explain everything and take care of all my needs. I wouldn't choose any other surgeon and will be going back to him for the rest of my procedures. Hands down, he is the best of the best."
