Liposuktion beim Lipoedem zur Verhinderung von Gelenkspatkomplikationen
Stutz JJ; 2011
Synopsis: [Article in German] This article describes how liposuction can reduce fat bulges in patients with lipedema, as well as correct the leg axis to improve walking appearance.
Abstract: Lipedema is a symmetric fat disorder in women which affects legs and arms. Due to the fat bulges at the proximal inner thigh there is an abduction of the leg axis that leads to a change in the walking appearance and to an unnatural physiological strain on the leg joints (knock knee).Using liposuction the fat bulges can be reduced and the leg axis corrected.
