Your Surgical Protocol

Our team will provide you with an Information Pack outlining all you need to know about booking and undergoing surgery, as well as how to prepare and what to expect after surgery.

THE SURGICAL PROTOCOL WILL BE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL HOWEVER, THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES OF THE SURGERY ARE;

  • Usually bilateral (both legs treated at the same time) to optimise balance, function and form following surgery.
  • The first stage of surgery is on the lower legs, which includes removing Lipoedema around the knees. The first surgery significantly improves mobility and reduces the gravity-damaging effects on the most vulnerable part of the legs affected by gravity.
  • The second stage of surgery is usually done as a single surgery involving the upper legs / thighs / buttocks.
  • The third surgery, if required, is done on the arms.
  • The intervals between surgeries is usually 6-8 weeks and you will be required to continue with flat knit compression garments and manual lymphatic drainage post-operatively.
  • The approach and order of surgery may be modified depending on the most impacting effects of the Lipoedema tissue.
