Surgical treatment of lipedema is available in very few centers, worldwide. While in Germany, the UK and elsewhere (mostly in Europe), lymph sparing liposuction to remove liopedemic fat has been used for several years with excellent results, this extremely specialized technology has not been used in the USA, with the exception of at NYC Surgical Associates where our lymphovascular team specializes in the full range of lymphatic and vascular issues, particularly pertaining to the lower extremities and other areas.

Because of our advanced diagnostic capabilities, we are able to offer real time imaging of the lymph vessels, veins, and arteries to avoid potential pitfalls in the clinical course of treatment, and are equipped to treat all facets of this complex disease.
