Questions or Comments for Dr. Byrd?
Dr. Byrd was so kind and passionate about helping me and took the time to listen to every single question. I was treated
amazingly by the staff and Dr. Byrd did such a fabulous job on my arms that I am choosing to drive to Georgia for
the rest of my surgeries instead of having them in NYC.

Getting Lipedema surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I can walk a mile now without any pain.
I chose Dr. Byrd as my Lipedema surgeon after consulting with two other top Lipedema surgeons – and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I wanted a surgeon that had studied with Dr. Stutz, used the latest lymph-sparing techniques and had years of experience with cosmetic liposuction. Dr. Byrd had all of these qualifications, but what really set her apart is her sincere compassion for treating women suffering from Lipedema. My surgeries went well and I am very pleased with the results.
