I got this information off the Treat Lipedema website. If you have lipedema, don’t despair there are two special types of liposuction that can solve your dilemma. I already know what you’re thinking – oh yeah, that’s just a cheater’s way to get out of being fat, but that’s not true when it comes to lipedema.
One consists of injecting the body with tumescent fluid and removing the fat cells manually with a cannula.
The other liposection has a water jet that assists liposuction and uses a slightly pressurized stream of saline to dislodge fat and simultaneously remove the cells. Instead of destroying fat cells, this type of liposuction loosens the fat cells to facilitate more gentle removal.
