Lipedema Prevention Is Our Mission

Lipedema

Lipedema is a condition that occurs almost exclusively in women. It manifests itself as disproportionately voluminous legs often together with a slender trunk. The increasing accumulation of excess fat on the legs usually appears during puberty or after pregnancies and can hardly ever be influenced by a change of diet or by exercise. The causes are unknown though hormones and inheritance are thought to play an important role.

Symptoms

In addition to the increase in volume of the legs, there is a feeling of tightness and heaviness as well as sensitivity to touch and pressure. This is a result of edema (swelling) in the fatty tissue, which especially in the evenings is noticeable after long periods of standing or when it is warm. Another symptom is recurrent bruising.

Treatment

We use the Verju X to decrease the fat deposits followed by pressotherapy and Hydrotherapy. We also use the Sculpsure to decrease fat deposits. For some, surgical treatments are the only solution. But even if you choose to have surgery, treating your lymphatics is the best solution to preventing progression. The swelling can be improved by lymphatic drainage and using compression garments and stockings (complete decongestive therapy, CDT). This leads to an improvement in symptoms and seeks to avoid progression to lympholipedema which is irreversible.
