There’s more to the story: there may be more WHYS to body SIZE!
This patient has Stage 2 lipedema, with some areas of Stage 1. The diagnosis shown here was conducted in January 2013, the patient then had lymph-sparing liposuction with Dr. Stefan Rapprich in February, April and June in Germany. The follow up exam with Dr. Karen Herbst takes place 4 months after the last surgery, in October.
Comments and feedback most welcome! Remember to spread the word about lipedema. For more info http://www.lipedema-simplified.org
NOTE: I have been working on my dissertation so I’m now catching up on my lipedema awareness days!
