We use an integrative approach to treat lipoedema which includes a few treatments. Our liposuction surgeon Dr Ron is not only the most experienced liposuction surgeon in New Zealand, but is also a hormone and anti-aging expert making his treatment approach as comprehensive as they come.
To start, you’ll require liposuction to remove the fat. Depending on the stage of the lipoedema and the area of abnormal fat, a decision is made on which method of liposuction would be most suitable.
Many doctors are dismissive of lipoedema, putting it down to just being overweight, however dieting or calorie restriction has very poor results in treating lipoedema.
All patient will have a blood test including progesterone, thyroid panel, insulin and vitamin D as we’ve found most have benefitted from correcting sub optimal hormone levels. Using bioidentical hormones, we can help bring levels back to where they should be.
We recommend replacing minerals were found to be deficient.
All patients who use The Original Sun-Chi Machine report benefits including a reduction in fluid retention, softening of their fatty tissue with a reduction in pain.
