New treatment methods
for lipedema - small intestine analysis, water jet, 3D scan,
laser lifting and more
The AWFM guidelines define this condition as follows: "Lipedema is a chronic and usually progressive disease in women characterised by a fat distribution disorder. It is caused by a circumscribed, symmetrical increase in subcutaneous fat tissue, predominantly in the lower extremities and in 30% of the upper extremities. In addition, there is a tendency to orthostatic oedema as well as a haematoma tendency after minor trauma (Allen et al., Wienert et al., Herpertz) and a marked sensitivity to touch."
Liposuction alone is not enough! - Holistic therapy
At revitCells, I take a holistic approach to all therapeutic procedures. In the case of lipedema, it is known to date that fundamental control circuits in the fat metabolism are disturbed.
In addition to the surgical removal of the lipedema fat tissue, we also pursue the approach of performing cause-related therapies in a complementary manner. For the first time, we are able to perform highly complex analyses of the small intestine (NOT the large intestine!), using only a few drops of blood - in the case of often pathological conditions of the microbiota, appropriate treatments can then be carried out. Here, both applications with postbiotics but also metabolism-regulating and cell-renewing supplementary therapies with omega fatty acids, amino acids as well as hypoxia training are possible and optionally recommended.
In any case, so-called multimodal therapies, i.e. the interaction of several treatments, are more effective than just "liposuction".
Liposuction by body-jet® procedure
Liposuction with water jet
In my clinic we use the new and ultra-modern Bodyjet procedure for liposuction. Here, the fat distribution disorders are very gently suctioned off using a water jet (WAL). This form of water jet liposuction makes it possible for the first time to suction off extremely high volumes of fat in just one session and is thus expressly different from the classic tumescent liposuctions. The anatomical conditions, such as the arrangement of the axially running lymphatic channels, are absolutely respected during liposuction (no criss/cross technique). This reduces the risk of injury to the lymphatic channels and thus prevents lymphoedema.
3D body scan for optimal analysis
A special unique selling point of our revitCells® lipedema therapy is the use of a complete 3D body scan before and after the treatment. In combination with a photo analysis, the treatment can be optimally planned and its results ideally analysed. This is important in order to identify the therapy approach that is tailor-made for you and thus achieve the greatest possible effect. You also get access to your 3D scans and other measurement results via app on your smartphone.
Less scars due to Softstop
With what we call the "soft stop" procedure, we have developed a suction technique that additionally protects the skin mantle and allows for more inconspicuous scars afterwards. As a plastic surgeon and hand surgeon, our special knowledge of the anatomical structures of the connective tissue of the arm and hand also allows us to suction the areas of these regions that are usually difficult to treat.
Laser treatment for additional tightening
Laser liposuction is also a very new procedure to achieve additional tightening effects in the tissue. This procedure can be used as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with waterjet liposuction. In this way, the often sagging skin areas can be tightened immediately after liposuction without having to remove the excess skin.
Supportive body composition via HIEMT technology
Optionally and accompanying liposuction, several sessions, starting 4 weeks after liposuction, of a HIEMT application can be included in the treatment. This is a high-intensity, muscle-building application while lying down, in which targeted, electromagnetic stimulation is used to strengthen and define individual muscle groups, as well as to increase fat burning in the body and stimulate blood circulation in the connective tissue.
Overnight stay in a private monastery room
To ensure 1 to 1 care after treatment, lipoedema therapy includes an overnight stay in one of our private, idyllic monastery rooms on the premises of the revitCells® practice clinic, including care by a private nurse, as well as a first-class catering service.
Only the best for our lipedema patients
From now on, every inpatient lipedema patient in revitCells will receive a very effective and innovative system applied directly after surgery, which demonstrably drastically reduces the postoperative swelling in the extremities through impulse technology.
The reduced swelling is accompanied by pain reduction, faster convalescence etc.
In addition to the included 3D laser scan or the holistic metabolic / microbiota therapy, the new pulse technology is another tool to offer our lipedema patients state-of-the-art technologies!
