The treatment

New treatment methods
for lipedema - small intestine analysis, water jet, 3D scan,
plasma tightening, pulse technique and more.

As a long-standing expert in lipedema surgery, I, Dr. Denis Simunec, welcome you to the revitCells practice clinic. On this page, you will learn more about our state-of-the-art therapy offer, which differs from common treatment concepts mainly by its holistic approach with efficient additional measures before, during and after the treatment.

Liposuction alone is not enough! - Holistic therapy

In revitCells, I follow a holistic approach in all therapy procedures. In the case of lipedema, it is known that basic control circuits in the fat metabolism are disturbed.
In addition to the surgical removal of the lipedema fat tissue, I 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!) with only 2 drops of blood - in the case of often pathological conditions of the microbiota, appropriate treatments can then be carried out.

In any case, so-called multimodal therapies, i.e. the interaction of several treatments, are more effective than just "liposuction".

Diagnostics with determination of the microbiota of the small intestine via two drops of blood and the determination of the omega fatty acid balance as well as the preparation of a therapy plan are included.

Liposuction by body-jet® procedure

Liposuction with water jet

In my clinic we use the state-of-the-art Bodyjet procedure for liposuction. Here, the fat distribution disorders are very gently suctioned off using a water jet (WAL). This form of waterjet liposuction makes it possible for the first time to suction off extremely high volumes of fat in just one session and is hereby 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 lymphedema.

3D body scan for optimal analysis

A unique feature of my revitCells® lipedema therapy is the use of a complete 3D laser body scan before and after the treatment. Thus, in combination with a photo analysis, the treatment can be optimally planned and its results ideally analyzed. This is important in order to identify the therapy approach that is tailored to 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.

Custom-fit compression garment from the company LIPOELASTIC® included

Due to the 3D laser analysis, we can use the determined body data to select and order a prefabricated compression garment from the company LIPOELASTIC® for you. The compression garment will thus be delivered to us on time for your operation. You do not have to worry about anything anymore.

Less scars due to Softstop

Through what I call the "soft stop" procedure, I 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, my special knowledge of the anatomical structures of the connective tissue of the arm and hand also allows me to suction the areas of these regions that are usually difficult to treat.

Argo plasma for additional tightening

Argo plasma treatment(download flyer here) is also a very new procedure to achieve additional tightening effects in the tissue. This procedure can be used as a stand-alone or in combination after water jet liposuction. In this way, the sagging skin areas can be additionally tightened immediately after liposuction without having to remove the excess skin. The tightening effect starts immediately, the final result can be seen after 3-6 months(Video1 and Video2).

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.

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 has been proven to drastically reduce postoperative swelling in the extremities through impulse technology. The reduced swelling is accompanied by pain reduction and faster convalescence.

In addition to the included 3D laser scan or the holistic metabolic therapy (microbiota), the new pulse technology is another tool to offer our lipedema patients state-of-the-art technologies!
