Treatment Philosophy

At the core of Advanced Lipedema Treatment’s philosophy is the guiding principle that our surgeons are treating not simply a disease, but a person with a disease. Prior to even meeting a new patient, heart and empathy lead the way, holding a patient’s hand from the initial consultation through recovery. 

At the surface of our philosophy is beautiful artistry. Our elegant and skillful surgeons target disproportionate fat on the patient's body, so that the patient loses weight, but does so in a perfectly balanced way.  However, 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, liposuction and liposculpture should accomplish three main goals: reduction of pain and improvement of symptoms, prevention of disease progression, and the best cosmetic outcome.

State-of-the-Art Treatment facility and

fully accredited surgical center.

Dr. Amron and his team of lipedema specialists treat patients from around the globe.  For that reason, Dr. Amron wanted to create an exceptional lipedema treatment and surgical center. Today, Dr. Amron’s Advanced Lipedema Treatment is offered exclusively at the highly regarded Roxbury Institute, with locations in Los Angeles, California and Salt Lake City, Utah.
