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.
