Dr. David Amron Celebrates More Than 500 Successful Lipedema Surgeries Using His Unique Method
“Ten years ago, a woman struggling with the effects of lipedema would have struggled in silence, simply because there was so little known and so little familiarity with the disease,” said Dr. Amron. “Having played a part in generating greater awareness for lipedema, as well as in perfecting its treatment, is among the most important roles I’ve played in my career. It is truly amazing to think that more than 500 women, who at one time felt insecure, or afraid, or were in pain, are now living active, healthy, happy lives because of this treatment.”
Lipedema Series Part 1: An Introduction to Lipedema
Lipedema is an often-misdiagnosed fat storage condition affecting millions of our national and global population. It primarily occurs in the legs, specifically the anterior thighs, knees and ankles. Often, it will also appear in the upper arms in later stages. It develops appearance of tree-like, column legs, with disproportionate fat storage and a lot of non-pitting edema, or excess swelling.
Lipedema Series Part 2: Treating Lipedema
Aside from constantly being misdiagnosed, many lipedema patients are told there is no real treatment for their condition. It’s amazing how many individuals are suffering with the condition and don’t even know it. Curing lipedema is extremely rare, and various medical treatments have been met with limited success. The only real possible cures are water-assisted liposuction (WAL) and tumescent lymphatic sparing liposuction,, which many surgeons are reluctant perform.
Lipedema Series Part 3: Liposuction for Lipedema Treatment
Lipedema is a complicated disease and it’s still being understood. It’s not only a problem of the lymphatic vessels itself, but also a fat storage problem, as well as a metabolic-hormonal component. Many doctors who only approach treating the lymphatic aspect don’t really understand the disease completely in terms of how important the fat storage part is along with it.
Lipedema Series Part 4: The Importance of Lipedema Awareness
Lipedema is a very under-recognized condition, especially in the United States, and I’m one of the few doctors with experience in surgically treating lipedema patients. There are many treatment centers in Europe, especially Germany, a country at the forefront of initial research and treatment for lipedema patients. Unfortunately, there are very few treatment centers in the nation, but I’m currently in the process of advancing my practice to treat more and more lipedema patients around the world. I want to further advance both the knowledge and awareness of lipedema among the medical community, as well as within the general public.
Preparing for Liposuction with Lipedema
Lipedema is a complicated disorder that doctors are still learning how to treat, both medically and surgically. Medical treatments, such as various supplements and medications, have proved to be little relief for lipedema patients. While these approaches can foster temporary relief, they’re not a permanent cure. As mentioned in my previous entries, I strongly believe in treating this condition with tumescent lymphatic-sparing liposuction – in fact, it’s the only approach I’ll take.
