Spotlight on Lipoedema

Facts about LIPOEDEMA

Lipoedema is a chronic, painful condition that occurs almost exclusively in women and manifests as the progressive accumulation of fat and swelling in the subcutaneous tissue generally in the thighs, buttocks, lower legs and sometimes the arms.

You may be surprised to learn it affects as many as 1 in 10 women but has for many years been mis-diagnosed as Lymphoedema (a build-up of Lymphatic fluid).

Or patients are told to go on a diet and exercise more, among other dismissive, distressing and frankly unhelpful comments.

Various strategies of self-care can assist with this condition, but increasingly sufferers are seeking out specialist liposuction surgery which can be life changing. 

In either case, seeking out Physiotherapists trained in MLD (manual lymphatic drainage) and wearing of compression garments is not just helpful, but necessary.

Recommended for use in the first post-operative stage after liposuction of the lower abdomen, buttocks, pelvic area, hips, thighs, knees, and calves – TBfLg Variant is available in Black (stocked here) and Natural in sizes XS – 3XL. 

They feature an open crotch, a double row of hook and eye fastenings, and guaranteed graduated/ascending compression along the entire length of the leg.  Low is suggested for those under 165cms and High for those over 165cms.

This garment is also ideal post-operative care for patients with lymphatic problems of the lower extremities.
