AirSculpt® Lipedema Treatment

Exploring Why AirSculpt® Lipedema Treatment Is Unmatched

Lipedema is a strange word the first time you hear or read it. This condition affects more than 370 million women worldwide. This disorder causes the abnormal enlargement of lower and upper limbs, caused by the growth of fat pockets located under the skin and muscle. 

Although it affects mostly women, some rare cases of Lipedema affect men. This condition is often misdiagnosed as a severe case of cellulite or just discredited as a weight problem. 

Even though Lipedema cases appear daily everywhere in the world, this disorder continues to confuse scientists as it is still a scientific mystery, and there’s not only one specific reason behind the cause. According to current research, it can be caused by:

  • Hormonal Disbalance
  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Hereditary Conditions

The hard truth about Lipedema is the condition itself. It not only includes the overgrowth of arms and legs with large amounts of fat, but it also develops and progresses with time, getting worse with the years with bruises, swelling, chills, and widespread pain. This condition can affect sensation, motion, and the look of legs and arms.

As you may expect, this disorder affects not only your physical condition but also your emotional state. Lipedema will also cause some attitude changes, affecting your self-esteem and the way you see yourself.

The Treatment:

As we mentioned, because Lipedema still remains a mystery to science and research, there is no one specific treatment that will eliminate the fat once and for all. On the other hand, there are several procedures that allow you to remove unwanted subcutaneous fat from your arms and legs, allowing you to continue with your life and routine.

Those Lipedema treatments include massages, exercise routines, and diets, to more technological approaches to this disorder such as cosmetic procedures like liposuction or AirSculpt.

Understanding AirSculpt®

AirSculpt® is a patented procedure developed by Aaron Rollins, M.D, founder of Elite Body Sculpture. Dr. Rollins wanted to create a technique where fat can be removed without the negative stigma and fear around fat removal processes like liposuction. He achieved this by creating a technically advanced treatment delivered in a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere. 

The AirSculpt® procedure removes unwanted fat cell-by-cell through a freckle-sized hole while simultaneously tightening your skin. Compare that with liposuction, which scrapes fat away with a manual motion requiring much guesswork.

AirSculpt® Lipedema Treatment

The way the AirSculpt® Lipedema procedure works is straightforward. After a topical numbing solution is applied without needles, a freckle-size incision is created in the skin to apply local anesthesia to the treated area. The numbing solution is injected into the treated area directly into the unwanted fat.

Then, a tiny cannula-like tube is inserted to remove the melted fat. This patented AirSculpt tool allows precise fat removal, in this case, of Lipedema fat from the body areas. Compared with liposuction, this tool is far more automated and spins in a rapid motion, enabling surgeons to pluck fat cells one by one like berries off a bush.

AirSculpt® technology allows all trained surgeons not to use general anesthesia, stitches, scalpels, or needles. Their main goal is to leave you with only small marks similar to the size of a standard freckle on your skin. The important aspect is to recover from a procedure without having any other significant issues like infections or extreme pain. 

With the AirSculpt® Lipedema procedure, both upper and lower limbs can be treated by collecting and removing all unwanted fat, cell by cell, while simultaneously helping tighten the skin around the treated area. 

This specific Lipedema treatment allows for better lymphatic outflow, balancing limb proportions in the body. AirSculpt typically treats inner thighs, ankles, calves, knees, and rear thighs but can also address the arms, the back, and biceps - helping you return to normal-size looking and feeling arms and legs that you’ve always dreamed of. 

The main benefit of Lipedema AirSculpt is that it offers a solution to this pain-inducing subcutaneous fat with minimal invasiveness. It allows you, the patient, to receive the best treatment, results, and recovery available.  If you're in the Sacramento area, call our office to set up a free consultation today!
