What is lipoedema?

Lipoedema is a chronic condition in which excess fat is stored in the legs, and sometimes also the buttocks or arms. Most patients feel pressure, tension, swelling or pain in the legs. This may also be accompanied by cellulitis and bruising. Lipoedema has a tendency to get worse over time. Lipoedema can be effectively treated with liposuction to remove the unwanted fat cells.

Fight lipoedema with liposuction

Lipoedema liposuction is not exclusively an aesthetic operation; in fact it is usually performed to relieve the patient from pain and swelling. With lipoedema liposuction it is important to remove all the affected fat tissue. This often requires more than one operation. Slimming the legs and improving proportions to match the size of the torso is a pleasant side effect.

Get an experienced surgeon

Tell us about what is troubling you. If you suffer from lipoedema, it is a good idea to choose technology proven to be effective in fighting this issue. That may mean vibro liposuction, ultrasound liposuction (VASER Lipo®) or water-jet liposuction (Bodyjet). The experience of the surgeon performing the lipoedema liposuction, as well as their knowledge of the condition, also play a critical role.

What to expect


Before the surgery

For two weeks before the operation avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. Minimise alcohol consumption and smoking for a few days before the procedure. Ideally you should stop smoking completely. 


During the surgery

Lipoedema liposuction is usually performed under general anaesthesia with an overnight stay in the clinic. The length of the procedure will depend on the scope, but it usually takes two to three hours. You can take a sedative before the procedure begins, if you wish. 

Mommy Makeover – MedRoyal


You may experience swelling and haematomas in the suctioned area, especially in the first two weeks. The extent of the swelling and haematomas varies from individual to individual. You will most likely experience stiffness, mild pain or a burning sensation. The suctioned areas and scars heal gradually and the recovery time usually depends on the client’s overall health and physical fitness.

Just-in-case insurance

The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ihr Weg zum neuen Körpergefühl
What kind of reviews do you have from lipoedema liposuction patients?

Contact our team and we’ll share patient stories, reviews and results for lipoedema liposuction performed by the surgeon you’ve chosen. 

How much does lipoedema liposuction cost?

We will be happy to tell you the exact price for your operation. Since every procedure differs in scope and difficulty, however, the price can only be set after discussing all your requirements and assessing your indications. The price disclosed before the procedure always includes consultation with a plastic surgeon, pre-op examination, the appropriate anaesthesia, the procedure itself, and post-op hospitalisation.

Can liposuction permanently resolve lipoedema?

Liposuction is definitely a highly effective treatment, as well as the most long-lasting, for lipoedema. It is the only treatment that permanently removes the affected fat cells. This stops the storage of excess fat and water, noticeably lowering the pressure in the subcutaneous tissue and veins.

Can lipoedema liposuction remove cellulite?

Most surgeons will tell you it cannot. Some surgeons, however, will assess the condition of the skin and subcutaneous tissues and see a realistic chance to improve the dimpled skin with liposuction. 

Does lipoedema liposuction require an inpatient stay?

Yes, most patients will need to stay one day. 

How long will it take to go back to normal life after having lipoedema liposuction?

That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Light physical exertion will normally need to wait about seven days. Most patients return to work after 14.

How long do I have to wait before exercising after the procedure?

That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Typically strenuous movement, exercise, strength training and even heavy cleaning will need to wait four to six weeks.

At what age can lipoedema liposuction be performed?

There is no age limit for this procedure, although the older you are, the more difficulty your skin may have retracting after the procedure. It may also be a good idea to have excess skin removed after the liposuction procedure, in this case a thigh lift. 

How big of a procedure is lipoedema liposuction?

The scope of the procedure depends on the number of zones and volume of fat the surgeon plans to suction. Lipoedema typically involves removing a large volume of fat and thus requires general anaesthesia and an overnight stay at the clinic.

How long do lipedema liposuction results last?

Once removed, the fat cells are gone forever, but the diagnosis lipedema remains. In order to maintain the results, you will need to adhere to healthy eating habits and regular exercise. Generally speaking, patients experience significant and long-term improvements as long as they maintain their weight. 

Can you also arrange transportation and accommodations for me?

Yes, we would be happy to arrange everything for you: plane tickets, a room in a verified hotel, and transport to and from the clinic. Contact us today.

Is now the right time for a new body awarness?

With us it is only one step away.
