For patients considering a surgical solution, Dr Lekich recommends a protocol that he has adopted in Australia in collaboration with his mentor Dr Heck, who has perfected this surgery in Germany over the last 14 years.
The standard of surgery is minimally invasive, not requiring open surgery.
This Lipo-Extraction is a medical treatment for Lipoedema of the legs and arms, aiming to arrest the disease.
The ultimate goal for surgery is;
- Remove the damaging, inflammatory fat to preserve lymphatic health and circulation of the legs.
- Avoid the long term dependence on compression garments and manual lymphatic drainage, which involve a significant and ongoing investment of a patient’s time and money.
- Preserve mobility and reduce degenerative conditions such as arthritis on the hips, knees and ankles.
- Regain freedom from the psychological burden of Lipoedema and reclaim your femininity through the aesthetic improvement that flows from treatment of the medical condition.
*Any surgical procedure carries risks. Patients should seek a second opinion.
