At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology, our mission and business was founded on helping our patients achieve a sense of comfort with their appearance. Cosmetic surgery is a wonderful tool that can help patients change things about themselves that ordinary efforts would not allow. An excellent example is lipedema. Dr. Greenberg of Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology has perfected the fast lipo procedure which he has used to great benefit for his patients that require liposuction but also are on tight schedules or need expedited treatment. Many of these patients suffer from a condition called lipedema, which we will outline today.
What is Lipedema?
Lipedema tends to be confused with the condition known as lymphedema. Not only do these conditions sound similar, but lymphedema can be caused by lipedema. Lipedema is a common disease which affects an estimated 11% of women worldwide. The study provided describes the condition as a disproportionate adipocyte hypertrophy in the lower extremities. In other words, people with lipedema suffer from excessive and disproportionate fat gain in their legs, thighs, and buttocks, and eventually the arms. Primarily a cosmetic issue initially, but once progressed the condition can block the lymphatic systems’ vessels. This leads to a buildup of fluid which is called lymphedema.
The cause of lipedema is currently unknown but the primary suspect for many medical professionals and researchers is that female hormones drive this issue considering that this condition presents overwhelmingly within women.
Lipedema Liposuction Treatment
Lipedema can be treated through a variety of ways such as manually draining the lymphatic system, usage of compression, and to some degree exercise can help. However, by and large one of the best ways to truly alleviate the emotional, psychological, and physical consequences of this lipedema is liposuction.
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology understands more than anyone that cosmetic surgery isn’t just for whimsical reasons. How we look and see ourselves greatly impacts our confidence and how we move in the world. Lipedema is a lesser known condition in the social world and many people who suffer from lipedema do so despite their best efforts for exercising and keeping their diet in check. This leaves them open to judgments and shaming from people who believe the issues’ origins are obesity. This can further adversely affect their mental and emotional health.
Naturally, many of our patients come from the city where striving to look your best and take care of yourself physically is an ingrained part of the culture. This is especially true of our patients that either live in or summer in the Hamptons where looking beach ready is a crucial element of fashion and presentation.
Thankfully, lipedema liposuction treatment can provide excellent outcomes for patients. Dr. Greenberg of Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology is renowned for his 24-hour breast augmentation. That same speed, efficiency, and attention to detail is also present in our practice’s liposuction procedure.
