Lipoedema

About the treatment

With a cutting edge technique, microcannular liposuction, Dr. Gupta has helped many people with lipoedema. Dr. Gupta was trained in the technique by the creator of the surgery, Dr. Jeffrey Klein, and is one of the only surgeons in Europe to practice it.

While there is currently no known cure for lipoedema, microlipo is a widely recognised, appropriate method for managing and ease the strain of the symptoms.

Dr. Gupta uses tumescent local anaesthesia instead of general anaesthesia, and the surgery is performed with very small instruments (cannulas) to remove fat, guaranteeing smooth and natural results.

The procedures are done step-by-step, usually starting with the outer thighs, and split over a timeframe of up to about six weeks.

Aftercare

A compression garment is applied after the procedure and the patient is briefed on how to ensure to keep compressing the area for up to two weeks after the procedure.

The specialist nature of the operation and the postoperative drainage mean there is little to no bruising.

Checks will continue to be carried out for several weeks as our friendly team helps the patients to readjust as the rapid improvement can transform their lives.

FAQs

Will I have scars?
The surgery is performed with very small instruments (cannulas) to remove fat, guaranteeing smooth and natural results. Most patients have no visible surgical scars. Any evidence of micro-incisions will usually disappear after a few months.

Will all the fat be removed in one go?
There should be a 4-to-6-week interval in between treatments, which means patient must exercise patience before they will see obvious results.

Cost

Whilst the cost of liposuction surgery for lipoedema is of course an important factor when considering a procedure, it should by no means be the most important factor.

There are a number of factors that determine the cost of a procedure, the most important being the amount of time and effort required on the surgeon’s part.

When agreeing a cost for the procedure, Dr. Gupta will consider the number of areas being treated & whether they can all be treated in “one sitting”. He will also consider the size of the patient, the size of the area being treated, and the anticipated degree of difficulty of the particular procedure.

Certain areas require more time and attention than other areas and this will affect the overall cost.

Dr. Gupta only works with clients who he feels will benefit from a liposuction procedure.

No client is the same and it is only after the consultation that Dr. Gupta can gauge suitability and then suggest a cost for the procedure.
