Liposuction for Lipedema and Lymphedema
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak with you today. I would especially like to thank Cheyenne Felicity and other hard-working and dedicated members of the FDR for putting together such a fabulous conference that this conference is extremely important for patients with lipoedema, because we know that many providers and physicians still realize that have never heard and do not even know how to treat him for those of you who do not know me.
I am a state-certified Plastic Surgeon and since 2005 at the Faculty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at UCLA. The focus of my practice is on treating patients with lipoedema and lymphedema with a comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment.
I thought we would need the next few minutes to answer some of the most frequently asked questions that we have in our practice regarding the two lipoedema and to see the limitation of many patients. Even doctors are confused about the difference between lymphoedema and lymphoedema. Both lipedema and lymphedema are associated with the swelling but the arms and legs are both very different and what causes them and how they are treated. Lipoedema is a disorder of accumulation of pathological fat.
This fat is often painful and may have a grainy texture, often referred to as a bean bag. Texture This fat tends to accumulate with hormonal changes in the patient’s life, for example, during the pregnancy, during menopause it does not respond to normal Weight changes such as weight gain or weight loss tend to affect both arms or legs equally. Lymphedema is on the order of the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. This is the circulation of lymph fluid that your body naturally uses to clean the insides of your arms and legs if that fluid does not drain properly on an arm or leg, or because of the accumulation of this poisonous and inflammatory fluid If this fluid tends to accumulate, it may cause permanent damage to the environment, leading to a permanent accumulation of fat and protein.
Patients with lipedema often fear that they may also have lymphedema. A patient may have both lipedema and lymphedema. Patients with lipedema may have undiagnosed lymphedema. This lymphoedema needs to be treated with care to prevent deterioration of your condition since lipoedema is a disorder of pathological fat and inflammation, can it lead to lymphedema and which surgical method do I use to treat lipoedema? I use liposuction, a special type of liposuction that I have developed for the treatment of lymphedema.
With Lipeh suction I can rid patients with lymphoedema of pathological fat and protect these patients safely The lymphatic system allows me to achieve the best long-term results in patients with lymphoedema when a patient is flaccid. The results are permanent. Yes. By aspirating the lipids, the pathological fat is permanently removed in lipoedema. It is important to note that patients have a significant weight gain after liposuction surgery may also increase in other areas Patience has often asked me if laser liposuction or liposuction with laser have caused lymphedema I have seen numerous patients appearing shortly after Laser liposuction treatment has developed a lymphedema I believe that the laser in these cases have permanently damaged the patient’s lymphatic system and therefore I.
The use of laser liposuction to treat patients with lipedema is not recommended. What happens if a patient with lipoedema and lymphedema is operated on to treat the only lipoedema? Lymphedema does not allow the patient to heal and reduce properly. The inflammation that naturally occurs after surgery may even worsen when the underlying lymphoedema of the patient is operated on. How do I treat patients with lipoedema and lymphedema? Patients with lipedema and lymphedema are best treated with a comprehensive and integrated lymphedema treatment system for this lymphedema. The treatment will also effectively treat lipedema.
This will allow a proper cure and, in the long term, provide the best outcome for patients with both diseases. How do I diagnose lymphedema patients? Come to our office and be thoroughly examined by the lymphoedema therapist myself. I myself use additional examinations performed by a radiologist, such as lymphatic or scintigraphy, to assess the underlying lymphatic drainage of the patient and to ensure proper imaging design that is also used in the operating room to perform lymphoedema operations to better understand and visualize the path Entes Lymphatic System How important is it for patients with lipoedema to be screened for lymphedema? I think it is very important that patients with lipoedema are examined for lymphedema. In addition, we find that a large number of patients with lipoedema also have an underlying lymphatic system that does not function.
These patients must be treated differently than patients with only one lipoedema. Why are multiple surgeries often needed to treat patients with lymphedema? Safety is most important to me. Patients with lipedema often have too much pathological excess volume to be treated. In these cases, we divide the surgical treatment into multiple stages with just one operation so that we can safely perform the operation at each stage and allow complete inter-stage healing is to provide the patient with the best possible results.
How do I perform liposuction with the POE? The suction operation is performed with very small incisions in the areas that I use very specialized cannulas formed in the direction of the lymphatic vessels to protect the lymphatic vessels and to protect the lymphatic vessels while the pathological fat is safely removed. In this way, I can remove as much fat as possible while I am sure which types of anesthesia I use to treat patients with lymphedema. As a plastic surgeon with specialist training, I have the option of general anesthesia either in the hospital or in the operations center or local anesthesia in the hospital or in the operations center to treat the patients. There are several benefits, and we tailor each patient to their needs. For example, when we use the hospital setting, I can remove larger amounts of fat in one session.
Many patients also feel much better when they are fully asleep during the procedure to give them the best possible and most comfortable experience. Thank you again for allowing me to be part of the FDR conference and special thanks again to Cheyenne Felicity and all the people who worked so hard.
