The Source for Lipedema Treatment Options

Lipedema is an often misunderstood disease that causes disproportionate fat accumulation in the body, often in the legs and arms. Though this is a disease, it is often misdiagnosed or written off as something else. Lipedema causes an increasing spectrum of symptoms, including heaviness and pain in the affected limbs as the disease progresses. Due to the lack of awareness surrounding this very real medical condition, many patients with lipedema do not get the proper treatment and care they need. Dr. Wright is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of lipedema, having helped thousands of patients overcome their symptoms.

Around the world and in the North America there are several different spellings for lipedema. Some examples of common alternative spellings are: Lipoedema [British and Canadian Spelling], lipodema which is an alternate English spelling, German spelling which is also Lipödem.

Though the true cause of lipedema is currently unknown, there are a few ways to combat this disease. Combined decongestive therapy (CDT) is often used to treat lipedema. CDT involves a light massage therapy utilizing a pump and scoop motion towards the heart to drain excess lymphatic fluid. Compression garments help to maintain the results of CDT. Additionally, liposuction can be used to directly treat the deposits of fat associated with lipedema.

If you think you might be suffering from lipedema, don’t wait to get treated. Lipedema only gets worse the longer it is left untreated. Give Dr. Wright a call today and schedule a consultation to see how he can help you overcome this disease and get the body shape and confidence you deserve.
