It’s not just liposuction. Dr. Jaime Schwartz has perfected a manual extraction process that offers women with lipedema a chance at life with much less pain. How he embarked on this specialty, what his current research with Dr. Karen Herbst looks like, the stigma of liposuction as a “cosmetic” procedure and the need for more education on this debilitating condition are all part of this fascinating discussion. Dr. Schwartz practices at www.totallipedemacare.com in California. The Lipedema Channel interviews are brought to you by Lympha Press, which offers a pneumatic compression device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lipedema in the United States – the Optimal Plus.
