“For the millions of women who are affected by lipedema, abnormal accumulations of fat caused by the disorder usually cannot be lost through diet and exercise,” says Dr. David Greuner, surgical director of Lipedema Centers located in New York and New Jersey. “Signs of lipedema include legs which are symmetrically enlarged between the hips and ankles, with a ring of fatty tissue overlapping the tops of the feet. The legs can feel colder than the rest of the body and the skin has a ‘dough like’ feel.” About 6% of lipedema patients also develop the disorder in their arms.
“Lymph sparing liposuction can significantly slow the progression of lipedema, reduce accumulation of fatty tissue and relieve many symptoms,” says Dr. Greuner. Information on lipedema symptoms, diagnosis and the latest conservative and surgical treatments is now available on Lipedema Centers’ new website, http://www.lipedemasurgery.com.
Dr. Greuner is one of a very few trained physicans in the country currently performing lymph-sparing liposuction for treatment of lipedema. Lipedema Centers, a division of NYC Surgical Associates are the only freestanding centers in the country that offer the full array of vascular and lymphatic diagnostics and therapeutics to accurately diagnose lipedema and provide conservative non-surgical treatment, as well as definitive surgical treatment at one location without the need for referrals. Lipedema Centers offer diagnostics and management for the other soft tissue and vascular issues that often coexist with lipedema, such as lymphedema and venous insufficiency.
