Our staff here at TLC want to make your experience at our office productive in learning new ways to take care of yourself, finding answers about this progressive condition, and designing a plan of action to lessen your symptoms and increase your health in the process.
When you first consult with our award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, you will find that he is a great listener and is very interested in how you would like your treatment (with or without surgery) to be carried out. He knows that lipedema can progress into a very serious, life-threatening condition (lymphedema). With state-of-the-art imaging equipment and access to world-class surgical centers and hospitals, Dr. Schwartz will render life-changing services to battle your painful fat syndrome to get it under control. You can also rest assured that Dr. Schwartz has a colleague in Dr. Karen L. Herbst to go to for medical collaboration if needed to bring you the best care and most knowledgeable person to help make decisions about your care. She is one of the world’s leading researcher in fat disorders, like lipedema. At Total Lipedema Care, you will be provided with amazing care by doctors who understand that this is not about your appearance.
Your mobility, overall health, comfort, and outlook on life can all be negatively impacted if your treatment is not carried out properly. Our job is to help you have health you deserve — without the unrelenting pain and expansive swelling that comes with lipedema. Contact us for your appointment today to get started.
