WHAT IS LIPEDEMA?

Lipedema is a fat disorder that can happen to women and men of all body types, which becomes more advanced, larger, and painful as it progresses.

DERCUM'S DISEASE

Dercum’s disease is best described as a syndrome that affects the body’s ability to break down fat, leading to the growth of small or large lipomas.

LIPOMAS

A lipoma is a small growth of fat cells found just beneath the surface of the skin. Most lipomas are painless and do not pose any potential risk.

LYMPHEDEMA

Lymphedema refers to swelling that generally occurs in one of your arms or legs. Sometimes both arms or both legs swell. It is is most commonly caused by the removal of or damage to your lymph nodes as a part of cancer treatment.

SURGICAL TREATMENTS PROCEDURES

TREATMENTS FOR LIPEDEMA

Lipedema treatment can range greatly from diet and exercise modifications to lymphatic sparing liposuction for the removal of the abnormal tissues.

LYMPHATIC SPARING ARM LIFT

Lipedema of the upper arms can cause the skin to become so large, there is a loss in elasticity and the skin becomes pendulous (a.k.a. “batwings”).

LYMPHATIC SPARING LIPOSUCTION

Lymphatic sparing liposuction is a medical treament for the safe removal of fibrous tissues and lipedema fat for patients with Stage I – IV lipedema.

LYMPHATIC SPARING THIGH LIFT

A lymphatic sparing thigh lift for lipedema is a redundant skin and fat removal surgery to improve your mobility and prevent related skin infections.

TUMMY TUCK FOR LIPEDEMA

Some TLC patients with lipedema on the abdominal area of their body may qualify for a lymphatic sparing tummy tuck (an excess skin removal procedure).

PANNICULECTOMY FOR LIPEDEMA

A panniculectomy is the removal of heavy, hanging lower abdominal skin (apron fat), which may alleviate symptoms of lipedema (painful fat syndrome).

UPPER BUTTOCK SHELF TREATMENT

Large, bulbous fat accumulations on the upper section of the buttock (shelf) disproportionately form from a genetic fat disorder known as lipedema.

MANUAL LIPEDEMA EXTRACTION

Referred to as “lipedema pearls,” nodules are intertwined in other connective tissues and firmly attached to the skin.
