You’ve arrived at The Answer to your lipedema concerns. Finally, there is an effective solution to the physical and emotional pain of lipedema. Leading board-certified dermatologic surgeon, Dr. David Amron, has developed a unique three-dimensional circumferential approach to liposuction that views each body part in a comprehensive, complete fashion. Using a lymphatic sparing technique combining Water-Assisted Liposuction (WAL) in a tumescent fashion, the diseased fat is safely removed from within the “safe plane” of the subcutaneous layer using only local anesthesia and in fewer procedures — no general anesthesia is required! The goal of ALT is not only to remove accumulated fat and decongest fibrosis, but also to create blending, balance, proportion, and the most aesthetically pleasing body contouring results with the eye of an artist. Peer-adopted, validated by thousands of happy patients, and proprietary designed, today ALT is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for lipedema treatment.
Advanced Lipedema Treatment’s philosophy is guided by the principle that our surgeons are treating not simply a disease, but a person with a disease. Prior to even meeting a new patient, empathy leads the way, with our surgeons and team holding a patient’s hand from the initial consultation through recovery.
At the core of our philosophy is science, a uniquely engineered approach, and technical prowess.
Our philosophy requires a deep understanding of lipedema combined with artistry to achieve maximal disease treatment and cosmetic outcome. Our elegant and skillful surgeons target disproportionate fat, so that the patient becomes balanced and proportionate. Achieving this requires more than just removing the accumulated fat. Equally as important is the careful attention and skill employed through liposculpture to achieve aesthetically pleasing body contouring and cosmetic results, and to maximally decongest the tissues. For maximum improvement in each patient, Lipedema liposuction and liposculpture should accomplish four main goals: reduction of pain, improvement of symptoms, prevention of disease progression, and the best cosmetic outcome.
Advanced Lipedema Treatment is the product of decades of deeply caring for those suffering from lipedema. Today, Advanced Lipedema Treatment is recognized as the most effective and safest way to treat lipedema in fewer surgeries, without general anesthesia or risk of complications. By combining years of experience, unmatched skill, an empathetic approach, and liposculpting artistry, Advanced Lipedema Treatment has provided a higher quality of life to thousands of people around the world.

Awareness for lipedema is on the rise. Today, this disfiguring disease has affected 17 million in the United States and 370 million worldwide. If you’re like many women, you may have lipedema and not even know it. While lipedema is a condition that causes disproportionate fat accumulation in the legs, buttocks, and arms — many doctors tell patients they’re simply obese based on BMI index and need to lose weight. These patients then proceed with Bariatric Surgery with little to no improvement of their lipedema. But one of the hallmarks of lipedema is that you can diet and exercise until the cows come home, but nothing works to shed the accumulating fat. To make matters worse, doctors often approach the lymphatic aspect of lipedema without understanding how important the fat storage part of lipedema is. In addition to cosmetic concerns, lipedema can lead to secondary health issues, such as swelling, tenderness, pain, joint problems, abnormal gait, unexplained bruising, and even permanent disability.

That’s why it’s crucial to get an early diagnosis so you can stop the progression of this dangerous disease in its tracks. A simple consultation with one of our experts can answer many of your questions and concerns, and you’ll learn the next steps to defeating your lipedema.
