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.
