from Lipedema

What is

Lipedema is a misunderstood condition that affects 17 million women in the United States, and more than 370 million women worldwide. It is a condition characterized by the abnormal accumulation of fat, primarily in the legs and later the arms with progressive enlargement.

Lipedema is a serious medical condition with many critical complications. The increased bulk and fibrosis cause blockages and hindrances to lymphatic flow. Other complications include deterioration of the joints, varicose veins, overall body pain and "pins and needles" type of discomfort. Additionally, patients report psychological problems ranging from lack of self-confidence to depression.

Lipedema FAQ
of lipedema:
Mild - Moderate - Severe or Advanced

Do you have

Lipedema affects one in every eleven women. The cause of the condition is the subject of research and is still unknown. Some evidence points to a hormonal or genetic origin. If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have lipedema – and you may have been misdiagnosed:

  • You bruise easily

  • Your legs and feet swell after standing or walking

  • You have developed disproportionate fat accumulations on the legs, hips, arms, or abdomen

  • Your skin is very sensitive to touch

  • You often feel extremely tired, lack energy, or feel generally unwell

  • You have knee fat pads

  • You have fat accumulations on your legs and ankles that exercise and diet don’t resolve

  • Your upper arms have accumulated a large amount of soft fat

  • Your lower abdomen has developed an “apron” of hanging skin and fat

  • The fatty areas are uneven and lumpy, like cellulite

Many patients with Lipedema have been told by a doctor they are obese and need to lose weight. In fact, one of the hallmarks of Lipedema is that Lipedema fat is resistant to diet and exercise. If your body has a disproportionate quantity of fat on the lower half, you may have Lipedema. The condition almost exclusively affects women, with fat accumulation at the waist, on the upper arms, and on the legs, appearing on both sides of the body. If, based on these symptoms, you suspect you have Lipedema, a consultation with Dr. Amron is your next step.

Prevention. Treatment. Success.

The Amron

Dr. Amron has pioneered a “three-dimensional circumferential contouring” approach to treat lipedema, and views each body part in a complete, comprehensive three-dimensional fashion. He approaches each cosmetic unit one at a time, rather than breaking it up into different procedures and surgeries. This allows Dr. Amron to remove the diseased fat from a particular body part in one single surgery and cosmetically blend the entire body part.
