ABOUT THE PROCEEDURE
Make sure that you have a medical diagnosis that confirms that you have lipedema
Make sure that you have a good lymph therapist close to home. You will need help both before and after surgery.
2. Local lymph therapist
The first step in this treatment is weight control or weight reduction to BMI <30.
Next step is to wear compression garments. It can ease the feeling of heaviness and pain.
When liposuction is the only way forward, we start to plan for this.
3. The medical team
Once accepted and we have settled agreements and payment we will plan for your consultation. Our dedicated team at Skåne Care will answer any questions and help you through the process up until this time.
Plan your trip to Sweden. We are here to guide you and recommend both accommodation and leisure activities. You will need to meet with the medical team in person, aprox. 3 months before surgery.
