Painful accumulations of fat – lipoedema

You wish …

  • Less fat accumulation – slimmer legs and arms
  • Proportions that fit the rest of my body
  • no pain anymore
  • no permanent compression wash

The solution: A lymphoid liposculpture – liposuction using VASER® technology and MicroAir®

What is lipoedema?

A lipoedema (Lipohyperplasia dolorosa) is a disease of the fatty tissue – an increased usually painful fat accumulation, especially on the arms and legs. It is usually familial and occurs more often in women. The increase of the leg and / or arm circumference, feeling of tension, pressure pain and spontaneous bruises are usually the beginning of the illness and the increase of the fat cells (adipocytes) often begins already at the puberty or in the pregnancy. The fat deposits can last especially on the sides of the hips and thighs down to the ankles.

Approximately 5-7 percent of women in German-speaking countries suffer from lipoedema. Lipoedema often accompanies the lives of many people for decades. Few of those affected know that this is a serious condition of adipose tissue. However, lack of exercise and unhealthy diet are not to blame for this accumulation of fat cells.

These are the symptoms

  • These are the symptoms of dysproportion of the legs and arms
  • Diet and sports resistant fat increase
  • Pain on contact
  • bruising
  • Tendency to swelling symptoms

Because lipedema is a progressive disease, it can be improved by consistent physical therapies, but not stopped.

Liposuction is the only symptom-reducing therapy.

Solution in steps

Initial Consultation

You can reach us for an appointment for an initial consultation in various ways:

You are welcome to contact us by phone: 01 353 55 55 or use our contact form. Please note that the next online appointment is not necessarily the next free appointment, please call us if there is no suitable online appointment available.

These are the benefits of the treatment:

  • Outpatient or day clinic and painless surgery
  • lasting successes
  • Use of lymphatic vessel-friendly surgical technique
  • highest medical safety

That happens before the procedure

In a detailed consultation, we discuss the possible intervention and I answer all the questions. We look at before / after pictures of my previous operations and discuss possible treatments.

That happens during the procedure

In the case of ambulatory lymphatic liposuction, the enlarged and increased fat cells are aspirated to restore the balance between lymphatic production and lymphatic transport and to improve the lipoedema. In tumescent local anesthesia, the fat pads are gently aspirated with a vibrating cannula. In some cases, VASER® technology is also used to gently remove fatty tissue. Removal of diseased adipose tissue helps relieve discomfort and improve movement restriction.

In most cases, an outpatient procedure is possible. As a rule, depending on the severity, 2-3 operations are necessary every 4 weeks (two operations on the legs, one on the arms). The surgical plan is adapted to each patient individually to obtain the best possible result. Siert during the procedure.

The procedure and the aftercare

The procedure of liposuction takes place in Vienna on a daily basis and in twilight sleep – also called sedoanalgesia.

My claim:

Precision and safety throughout the procedure. I have over 13 years experience in plastic and aesthetic surgery and I am a specialist in body shaping. The well-rehearsed surgical team is complemented by experienced anesthesiologists who will look after you safely throughout the procedure. For the best results, you will receive compression underwear after surgery for 6 weeks.

You are able to socialize after about 1 week, able to work after 1-2 weeks, depending on the job. You should refrain from sports activities in the first 3-4 weeks and rest.

For possible pain you get the right medication, any swelling and redness disappear after a few days and weeks. The right scar treatment LINK is very important and ensures an improved, beautiful complexion. Light physical activity such as walking is possible and useful right after the operation. The puncture sites are not sutured, as thus a large part of the tumescent fluid can escape. Thus, possible swellings after a few days only minimal. After healing the small puncture sites (about 2 weeks) we recommend swimming, because the pressure under water increases the drainage effect. Shaking activities like running should be avoided in the first 3-4 months.

Tip: lymphatic drainage

In order to optimize lymphatic drainage, short-term but intensive conservative lymphological therapy should be performed immediately after surgery for approximately six weeks. These can either be obtained through our Cranio Sacral therapist (LINK Renate) or through your own physical therapist close to your home.

My team and I are always available for you should you have any questions. You can reach me after surgery at night always on my mobile number. Further follow-up appointments in my practice are important to optimally accompany the healing process and are agreed with you before the procedure.

That’s what our patients say

Dr. Rolf Bartsch

The aim of this procedure is a reduction in the volume of the fat volume and, consequently, the permanent pain relief of the patient. An end to the permanent wearing of the compression garment represents a new quality of life for those affected. With proper suction technology, liposuction leads to a high percentage of success.

Dr. Rolf Bartsch

Because of my heavy, painful legs I was always tired and depressed. My quality of life was severely limited and I had to take antidepressants. By the liposuction by Dr. med. Bartsch I have regained mobility and thus joy of life again.
