Lipedema Stage 3 Before and After


Welcome to our Stage 3 Lipedema Before and After gallery, where we present the incredible transformations of women who have overcome the challenges of Stage 3 Lipedema. This is a space to learn about the inspiring journeys of those who sought treatment to improve their quality of life and boost their confidence. 

Understanding Stage 3 Lipedema

Stage 3 Lipedema represents the most advanced phase of this progressive condition. During this stage, individuals often grapple with severe swelling, discomfort, and it usually has a significant impact on their daily lives. This phase is characterised by a pronounced ‘column-like’ appearance of the legs, with substantial fatty deposits in areas such as the thighs, hips, bum, lower legs and more often than not the arms. 

Early intervention and proper management are crucial during Stage 3, as the condition can lead to further complications and severe mobility issues. Seeking medical advice and exploring suitable treatment options is essential to address Stage 3 Lipedema effectively.

Treatment Options

Managing Stage 3 Lipedema requires a daily comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach. While treatment plans are tailored to individual needs, they may include:

  • Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT): CDT combines specialised massage techniques, such as Manual Lymphatic Drainage, with compression bandaging and exercise to help reduce severe swelling and improve lymphatic circulation.
  • Liposuction: In many cases, liposuction techniques designed for Lipedema, such as WAL Liposuction, can be highly effective in reducing excess fat deposits and reshaping the affected areas.
  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises may be recommended to improve mobility and strengthen muscles.
  • Emotional Support: Coping with Stage 3 Lipedema can be emotionally challenging. Support from mental health professionals and support groups can be invaluable.

*Treatment decisions should always be made in consultation with a healthcare professional experienced in Lipedema management, considering your individual, unique circumstances.
