What Are The Treatments For Lipedema In Australia?
Liposuction procedures such as water-assisted liposuction and other liposuction techniques are commonly obtained to treat the symptoms and physical discomfort of lipedema. Lipedema patients often experience pain and swelling due to the accumulation of abnormal fat, so the removal of those fat cells can provide patients with relief. Of course, all liposuction procedures should be considered carefully and should be combined with an appropriate treatment plan for lipedema to manage the symptoms long-term.
When the condition advances into its later stages, lipedema can cause more than accumulation of fatty tissue in the upper arms, upper body, legs, and thighs. The majority of patients can find that their lymphatic system becomes less efficient, often causing more swelling. To manage these symptoms, patients are often referred for manual lymphatic drainage and compression garment treatment. When the condition starts to impact the patient’s daily life, it is not uncommon for patients to consider liposuction.
Lipedema recovery is more about management of symptoms than a cure, as the condition currently has no cure. As researchers continue searching for the exact cause of the disease, numerous treatments are available to manage the problem over a longer period of time.
What To Expect Before And After Lipedema Surgery?
Patients will discuss their procedure in detail with their cosmetic surgery before the surgery. For example, a consultation with Dr Lanzer or one of his associates could envelop discussing your general health, more information about the procedure itself as well as an evaluation of the problem. You will also be required to sign a consent form before the procedure can take place, this ensures you understand the procedure as well as the associated risks.
Once the surgery has taken place, patients will need to take some time to recover. During your recovery, you will receive special guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic, giving you more information about post-operative recovery and care. You will also be required to attend a follow-up appointment; this ensures your cosmetic surgery can check on your progress and look for any signs of complications.
