WHAT IS LIPEDEMA?

Lipedema is a chronic medical condition characterized by a symmetric buildup of adipose tissue (fat) in the legs and arms. A common but under-recognized disorder, Lipedema may cause pain, swelling, and easy bruising. It may be accompanied by an unusual texture within the fat that can feel like rice, peas, or walnuts beneath the surface of the skin. The intensity of pain may range from none to severe, and its frequency may be constant, come and go, or only occur when the fat is pushed on. 

Limited public awareness of Lipedema, coupled with few research-backed treatments, can lead to exacerbation of symptoms as well as physical and emotional distress. Common symptoms include fatigue, muscle pain, or easy bruising.

What To Expect

Before your appointment, we will have you complete an in-depth intake form. Whether in person or by telehealth, you can expect your provider to discuss your health history and the history of your weight changes, including all of the possible lifestyle and medical changes you have made to improve your weight. It is essential for us to capture all of the details of your prior attempts at optimizing your health. We will discuss the next steps of your treatment plan and how to get your treatment plan covered.

The cost is $400 for a consultation. This is not an insurance-covered visit, and payment will be collected at the time of service. 

* Consultations only available in the states of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Florida, Colorado, and Alabama.
