Lipedema experiences – Andrea’s profile

My name is Andrea and I am 40 years old.

I’ve had my diagnosis since 2002, and what weighed me down especially on the way to the operation was that I was very slim at the waist, but everything below was very wide. As if the wrong torso was sitting on top of the torso.

That was me and my lipedema in stage II type 4:



There may also be areas listed that are to be classified as non lipedema areas according to the AWMF S1 guideline of 2015.

I had compression garments as a conservative therapy.

Then I came to LIPOCURA® and everything changed!

I chose LIPOCURA® because it made me feel understood and comfortable for the first time. I wanted to say goodbye to my lipedema because I wanted to feel comfortable in my skin again.

That’s me today:

Between then and now are:

  • 4 operations on 4 areas and 31 litres of fat.
  • I had 3 tightening operations with the laser on arms, legs and stomach.

Today I eat healthy and do various sports.

My biggest fear before the operation was how I would cope in the first few weeks after the operation. A photo cushion of my family was indispensable in my hospital bag. I am especially grateful to Dr. Sauter, the entire nursing staff and Ortwin for my lipoedema journey.

To all those who still have doubts about the decision to have the operation, I would like to say that it really is not easy at first, but what I have got back in terms of quality of life is priceless.

Note: It is important to mention that the testimonials of our patients do not describe aesthetic surgery, but refer to medically necessary procedures for the treatment of lipedema in various stages.
