The following post is personal, very personal.

Liposuction is the only medical method of getting rid of the diseased fat called Lipedema.
In the liposuction category, you will be able to find a description of all 8 liposuction procedures that I have had to have done on my body. This includes the liposuction of both calves, the left thigh, right thigh, buttocks, both arms, full stomach, sides from armpits to hips, and finally the upper stomach, sides and back.
Liposuction for Upper Stomach is Scheduled
Whew, that was quick! When we decided that my own liposuction surgeon will have to remove the fat on my upper stomach before the panniculectomy, I had absolutely no idea that he’d be able to get me in this quickly! I just saw the plastic surgeon on the 22nd of Continue Reading
Liposuction for the Sides and Lower Back

Stomach Liposuction is Now Booked

Arm Liposuction Surgery (with laser assisted liposuction)
On October 6th, 2016 I had my last surgery of this year. It was my arm liposuction surgery with laser assisted liposuction. What is laser you ask? You’ve never heard of this being used in Germany?! Well, you’d be right. While laser has been around for quite awhile (even longer than Continue Reading
Getting Liposuction on My Stomach – A Complicated Issue
Way back when I did my consultation with my surgeon last year (fall 2015), he was very up front when it came to my stomach. It’s big, it contains a lot of fat, and it’s risky business. Apparently, he really doesn’t like doing liposuction on stomachs because there’s a much Continue Reading
