LYMPHATIC SPARING LIPOSUCTION AND MANUAL LIPEDEMA EXTRACTION

This patient came to Total Lipedema Care with debilitating lipedema. The pain and swelling she experienced in her legs were so severe that she could barely walk. ⁣Her mobility issues, pain, and increasing fibrosis were interfering with her daily life and progressively getting worse. Combined with the painful symptoms of lipedema, this painful fat disorder also caused her to have a “tree-like” appearance in her legs, where the lipedema fat fully encompassed the thighs, knees, calves, and ankles- resulting in ankle cuffing. After seeking treatment, Dr. Jaime Schwartz developed a long-term treatment plan tailored to this patient to combat the chronic disorder. ⁣ Through surgical intervention with lymphatic sparing liposuction and Dr. Schwartz’s signature Manual Lipedema Extraction- this patient has experienced life-changing results, and she is only halfway through her treatment plan! This photo was taken after her third procedure with Dr. Jaime Schwartz, and the treated areas include anterior lower legs, anterior thighs, posterior lower legs, and proximal thighs.

LYMPHATIC SPARING LIPOSUCTION AND MANUAL LIPEDEMA EXTRACTION​

We love it when our patients send us progress photos and updates on how they are recovering. This patient-submitted transformation is a three-month progression following the second procedure in a series of Lipedema reduction surgeries with Dr. Jaime Schwartz at Total Lipedema Care.

This patient’s first procedure included Lymphatic Sparing Liposuction and Manual Lipedema Extraction on the front of her thighs and her second procedure was the same approach on the back of her calves. Her treatment plan, tailored by Dr. Schwartz consists of four procedures, so this update marks her halfway point! The inflammation in her legs, pain, and swelling has diminished and will continue to subside once her series of treatments is complete. ⁣

LYMPHATIC SPARING LIPOSUCTION AND MANUAL LIPEDEMA EXTRACTION​

This patient came to Total Lipedema Care with concerns about the excess skin and pain she was experiencing under her arms. During her consultation, Dr. Jaime Schwartz diagnosed her with Lipedema, and he developed a treatment plan to combat the symptoms she was experiencing and remove the oversized lipedema nodules. 

This result is three-weeks post-operation that included Lymphatic Sparing Liposuction and Manual Lipedema Extraction. This patient did not have a lymphatic sparing arm lift. Once the lipedema nodules are removed from the arms, many patient’s skin retracts, and a lymphatic sparing arm lift may not be necessary. During the procedure, Dr. Schwartz removed 500 cc’s of fat in the right arm and 600 cc’s of fat from the left arm. 

Dr. Schwartz does evaluate the elasticity and integrity of each patient’s skin to determine whether or not a lymphatic sparing arm lift would be needed as a part of the patient’s long-term treatment plan.

Following her procedure, she was able to recommence an exercise regimen, and she walked four miles without experiencing the severe pain that initially led her to receive a diagnosis.

Lipedema Reduction Treatment is performed in phases. This patient will continue a series of surgical treatments to address all of the lipedema affected areas.

LYMPHATIC SPARING LIPOSUCTION AND MANUAL LIPEDEMA EXTRACTION​

This before and after is following this patient’s second Lipedema Reduction Surgery. Her series of treatments are performed in phases and this result is after Dr. Jaime Schwartz performed Lymphatic Sparing Liposuction and Manual Lipedema Extraction on her anterior thighs and posterior thighs and calves. 

Before surgery, this patient experienced severe pain, immobility, and interference with activities of daily living. Her clinical symptoms included easy bruising, pain with walking, increasing fibrosis, swelling, and masses.

During her second procedure, Dr. Jaime Schwartz removed more than six liters of lipedematous fat. Less than one month after her second procedure, this patient mentioned her legs are less painful, lightweight, and she is able to do more physical activity. 

Her next phase of treatment is lipedema reduction surgery on her arms.
