For this reason, we consider it indispensable to treat lipedema thoroughly and holistically on all affected areas and adjacent zones. This concerns, for example, the lower legs, the thighs, as well as the forearms and upper arms. From the ankle to the groin, as well as from the wrist to the armpit – but also on the abdomen, hips and many other areas.
There are no taboo areas where liposuction cannot be performed.
In recent years, we have observed an increase in the number of pre-operated patients who have only had partial or incomplete liposuction. Thus, the suffering of those affected is not yet over, and further corrective liposuction becomes necessary. If the lipedematous fat layer was not thinned out thoroughly enough, the remaining fat layer can change again much more quickly. It is not possible to distinguish between healthy and diseased fat cells during liposuction. For this reason, the more fat cells that have been left, the higher the potency of a renewed increase. Therefore, it is essential that the entire fat layer is suctioned off as thoroughly as possible the first time.
The main goal of corrective liposuction for lipedema is to alleviate or eliminate the symptoms. Our years of experience enable us to meet high aesthetic standards at the same time. We would like to point out that circular and thorough liposuction does not mean that after the surgery there will be no more female curves or that every patient will start her new life with the same figure. The result of corrective surgery depends on many factors, all of which are highly individual, such as the preliminary work of the (outside) surgeon, your own anatomy, your wishes, genetics, as well as wound healing, etc. Our competent and experienced doctors can discuss with you during our consultation – after a thorough examination – what result can be expected for you. We look forward to meeting and advising you.
