The only known permanent lipedema treatment for lipedema arm lift is a technique called lymph sparing liposuction surgery. This technique uses a very thin cannula, or hollow tube to gently remove most of the diseased fatty tissue thus stopping the progression of the condition. Dr. Byrd uses her experience and artistic ability to not only remove the cause of the problem, but to contour the body to enhance the patient’s overall body profile.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a technique where the tissue to be treated is flooded with a solution containing a powerful anesthetic along with a drug that causes the tiny blood vessels in the tissue to contract. This has a double benefit of virtually eliminating blood loss while providing the patient with profound anesthetic comfort.

The lymphatic system is critical to maintaining fluid balance and great skill is needed to ensure the lymph vessels are not damaged during the procedure.
