Discovering the Distinctions: Understanding Lipedema and Lymphedema
Meet Sarah, a courageous individual who faced the challenges of a delayed diagnosis of both lipedema and lymphedema, conditions that caused her to carry excess weight and obesity.
While some may mistakenly attribute obesity solely to poor lifestyle choices, Sarah’s story is a powerful reminder that medical conditions like lipedema and lymphedema can also be underlying causes.
At ContourMD, we believe that individuals affected by obesity, regardless of its origin, deserve dignity, care, and respect.
These conditions are complex, even for skilled plastic surgeons who treat them regularly. Lipedema often coexists with lymphedema, both stemming from issues with the lymphatic system.
Specifically, inadequate drainage of fluids, particularly in the lower extremities of the legs, is a prevalent concern.
In many cases, the telltale signs may not be immediately apparent.
It can be perplexing to find excess weight in specific areas of the body, like the arms and legs, while the rest of the body appears unaffected.
However, through awareness and understanding, we aim to shed light on these conditions.
