On June 9 and 10, 2017, we exchanged information on lipedema at the international level. What was clearly emphasized here, among other things, is that liposuction provides lasting improvement in the symptoms associated with lipedema. Performing lymphatic drainage before and after treatment is very important.
There was also a presentation on the differences between normal and lipedema fat. The difference from healthy fat is that lipedema has increased cell division, CD90 CD 146 increased (due to TNF-alpha produced by macrophages) and decreased adipogenesis. There is also difference in adipocyte morphology.
For the entire program, see the post about the International Congress on Lipedema.
