3 Phases of Treatment for Lipedema

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a presentation by Dr. Alexandre Amato at our Innovative Solutions for Lipedema & Lymphedema virtual symposium that was held in October 2021.
  • Dr. Amato is a surgeon in Brazil who performs liposuction for lipedema.
  • He firmly believes, however, that conservative treatments that address the inflammation present in lipedema will improve surgical outcomes or may mean that surgery can be avoided altogether.
  • In this excerpt, he discusses what he sees as the 3 phases of treatment for lipedema and how to address inflammation.
