Questions or Comments for Dr. Byrd?
June 2017 while on a tour of Portugal and Spain a lovely Australian lady told me about Lipedema. I went to hotel room looked it up and cried for an hour. The tree trunks legs, the bruising, the pain!! It had a name and a death sentence. My poor Mom suffered her entire life and never knew it was NOT her fault. Started research and getting diagnosed.
Getting Lipedema surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I can walk a mile now without any pain.- Becky
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.
