I was looking for experts & had never had an operation before.Because of my already slim silhouette, I was looking for a professional liposuction result that looked good.It was also important to me that the diseased fat was radically removed & I kept coming across lipocura during my research

Carlotta B



Everyone was super friendly!I feel I’m in good hands there, I’ve already had two out of three operations & I would always choose Lipocura again.The best choice for me.

Sandra B



Dr. Isaev: do you see the genuine smile and joy of this doctor? He really is one of the best doctors I have ever seen for my lipoedema. I can’t even put into words how nice it is to finally be able to live properly and then these thin legs…which I have NEVER had in my life. Thank you Lipocura for everything, I’m really looking forward to the aftercare and seeing you again <3

How does the consultation at LIPOCURA® in Berlin work?

In our first consultation at LIPOCURA® in Berlin, we take the time to get to know you and your specific situation in detail. This enables us to better understand your individual needs.

  • Medical history
    At the beginning of the consultation, we will discuss your current complaints and medical history in detail. This is crucial in order to gain an accurate picture of your health situation and to be able to plan the next steps on this basis. We deliberately take a lot of time, because the best individualised treatment plan can only be developed if the patient is fully focussed and an atmosphere of trust is created.
  • Diagnosis
    We use various diagnostic procedures to accurately diagnose Lipedema and its severity. These include the pinch test, which assesses the tissue structure, and ultrasound examinations, which provide a detailed insight into the affected areas by visualising the fat layers. We identify problem areas and those that could cause difficulties in the future. We also assess the progression of the disease and analyse the tissue to determine the requirements for an optimal treatment outcome. This comprehensive diagnosis enables us to create a customised treatment plan.
  • Planning
    Using the latest technologies, such as a 3D scan with the MyLIPOAvatar, we create a personalised treatment plan for you and record important health parameters such as body fat percentage and posture. To prepare you optimally for the upcoming treatment, we provide you with helpful tips, our informative LIPO BOOK and our LIPO Journal. The LIPO BOOK provides you with valuable information about your condition, treatment options and aftercare. The LIPO Journal helps you to document your progress and keep important notes for you.

Our primary goal is to provide you not only with the highest level of medical expertise, but also with a deep sense of trust and security. We support you with the initial diagnosis and are available to clarify an existing diagnosis or for a second opinion. We also offer a corrective consultation if you have already had Lipedema surgery that did not go satisfactorily. We will also be happy to answer any general questions you may have. This should make it easier for you to decide in favour of liposuction and thus help you to improve your attitude to life. With our comprehensive and empathetic care, we would like to pave the way to a life free of complaints.

Initial consultation

What should I know for my initial consultation with LIPOCURA®?

We understand that you are probably a little nervous before your consultation with us. So that you can be reassured and are fully prepared for your appointment, here are the most important facts about your initial consultation:


Frequently asked questions

Lipedema is a chronic disease that occurs predominantly in women and is characterised by an abnormal, uncontrolled increase in fatty tissue. This fat distribution disorder mainly affects the extremities, i.e. arms and legs, and often develops during certain phases of life such as puberty, after pregnancy or during the menopause.

The symptoms of Lipedema vary depending on the progression of the disease and can lead to a considerable impairment of everyday life. Typical symptoms include pain, a feeling of pressure, swelling and restricted movement. A cure for Lipedema has not yet been proven. However, conservative treatments such as wearing compression stockings and regular lymphatic drainage can alleviate the symptoms. Liposuction is currently the only method of permanently removing the abnormally altered fat cells.

Lipedema is mainly characterised by a visible and palpable increase in subcutaneous fatty tissue. It usually starts on the legs and is usually symmetrical. The affected areas are often sensitive, painful and prone to bruising. Many sufferers report a feeling of tightness, sensitivity to cold and a feeling of heaviness in the affected limbs.

To find out whether you have typical symptoms of Lipedema, we offer you a self-test. This test can give you an initial assessment in just a few clicks and serve as the basis for an initial consultation.

The exact causes of Lipedema are not yet fully understood, but genetic factors are thought to play an important role, as the disease often runs in families. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy or the menopause, particularly due to the hormones oestrogen and progesterone, also appear to be important. Furthermore, a possible malfunction of the lymph vessels is under discussion, which could be responsible for an increased storage of fluid in the fatty tissue.

It is a widespread misconception that Lipedema is synonymous with being overweight. In fact, Lipedema is not caused by poor diet or lack of exercise and cannot be cured by diet or exercise.

Lipedema is diagnosed at our central consultation location in Berlin, where we welcome you in modern and comfortable premises. Our many years of experience and extensive expertise enable us to make a precise and well-founded assessment of your state of health.

The diagnostic process begins with a detailed anamnesis interview, in which we record your medical history and current complaints in detail. This is followed by a thorough physical examination, during which we pay particular attention to the characteristic fat distribution and the nature of the fatty tissue. An important part of this examination is the pinch test, in which the sensitivity to pain and the condition of the fatty tissue are checked.

We also use imaging techniques such as ultrasound to assess the structure of the fatty tissue and rule out other diseases. This comprehensive diagnosis enables us to get an accurate picture of your condition and develop a customised treatment strategy.

Our specialised doctors and the entire LIPOTEAM in Berlin are focused on providing you with first-class care and creating the best possible conditions for your treatment. In our spacious and modern facilities, we ensure that you feel well looked after throughout your stay.

The primary aim of treatment is to alleviate the symptoms of Lipedema and improve the quality of life of those affected. To this end, we use various conservative methods, such as manual lymphatic drainage, wearing compression garments, specially adapted diet plans and exercise therapy. These measures can reduce swelling, alleviate pain and improve general well-being.

In advanced stages of the disease, however, conservative therapies often have their limits. In such cases, liposuction is usually the only effective way to alleviate the symptoms and correct the body contour. We carry out this procedure in our partner clinics throughout Germany using the gentle PAL method (Power-Assisted Liposuction). This method is particularly gentle on the tissue and precise, enabling us to remove significantly more fat than is the case with conventional aesthetic liposuction.

In order to optimally support the healing process, we give our patients individualised nutritional recommendations that have already proven themselves in practice. To round off the aesthetic result, we also offer scarless skin tightening. In cases of particularly severe excess skin, surgical skin tightening can also be considered.

Our holistic approach ensures that both your health and aesthetic needs are taken into account. The treatment is customised to your individual requirements. Our aim is to enable you to significantly improve your quality of life through comprehensive and carefully planned treatment.
