How does the consultation at LIPOCURA® in Düsseldorf work?

In our first consultation at LIPOCURA® in Düsseldorf, we devote ourselves entirely to you and your concerns. A deep understanding of your personal needs and your specific situation is the basis of our work.

  • Medical history
    We begin every consultation by discussing your medical history and current complaints in detail. This comprehensive medical history is essential in order to gain a precise picture of your health and lay the foundation for the next steps in your treatment.
  • Diagnosis
    We use various diagnostic methods to diagnose lipedema. These include, for example, the pinch test, which can be used to assess the sensation of pain and the sensitivity of the tissue to pressure. Ultrasound is also an imaging procedure that we often use to gain detailed insights into the affected areas. We also measure fat thickness and identify areas that are already causing problems or could become problematic in the future. We also assess the progression of the disease and the condition of the tissue. This comprehensive diagnosis creates the conditions for an optimal treatment result and individually tailored treatment plans.
  • Planning
    Using the latest technologies, such as the 3D scan “MyLIPOAvatar”, we create a customized and transparent treatment plan for you. MyLIPOAvatar also allows us to precisely document the current state of your body as well as an outlook on the result after the operation and to map important health parameters such as body fat percentage, posture, etc. For optimal preparation for the upcoming liposuction, we also provide you with useful tips, an informative LIPO BOOK and the LIPO journal for at home. The LIPO BOOK provides you with valuable information about your condition, detailed explanations of the treatment options and important information about aftercare. The LIPO journal helps you to document your progress, record your experiences and stay motivated.

Our primary goal is not only to provide you with the highest level of medical expertise, but also to give you a strong sense of trust and security. We support you with the initial diagnosis and offer you the opportunity to clarify a diagnosis that has already been made or not made in the form of a second opinion in order to assess your situation in the best possible way. In our corrective consultation, we clarify questions about previous treatments and possible improvements. The thorough discussion of all your general questions should make it easier for you to decide for or against liposuction and contribute to an improved attitude to life.

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 mainly affects women and is characterized by a pathological, uncontrolled increase in fatty tissue. Lipedema mainly manifests itself on the legs and arms and typically develops during puberty, after pregnancy or during the menopause.

As the disease progresses, various symptoms can occur that can lead to significant impairments in everyday life, such as pain, feelings of pressure and restricted mobility. Although there is currently no empirical evidence of a cure, conservative treatments such as compression garments or lymphatic drainage can alleviate the symptoms. Liposuction remains the only method of permanently removing the abnormal fat cells.

Lipedema is characterised by an increased accumulation of subcutaneous fatty tissue, usually starting on the legs and usually occurring symmetrically. The affected areas are often sensitive to pressure, painful and prone to haematoma formation. Those affected often describe a feeling of coldness and tension as well as heaviness in the affected extremities.

To determine whether you may be suffering from lipedema, we offer a self-test that can give you an initial orientation and serve as a starting point for a consultation.

The exact causes of lipedema have not yet been fully researched, but a genetic predisposition is assumed as the condition often occurs within a family. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy or the menopause, particularly oestrogen and progesterone, also appear to play a role. A possible dysfunction of the lymphatic vessels, which leads to an increased storage of fluid in the fatty tissue, is also being discussed.

It is a widespread misconception that lipedema can simply be equated with being overweight. Lipedema is not caused by inappropriate diet or lack of exercise and cannot be treated by diet or exercise.

Lipedema is diagnosed at our Düsseldorf consultation centre, where many patients take advantage of our extensive expertise and many years of experience to obtain a well-founded diagnosis or a second opinion. We start with a thorough medical history, followed by a careful physical examination, during which particular attention is paid to the typical fat distribution and the nature of the fatty tissue. Thanks to our many years of specialisation in Lipedema, we can also reliably identify subtle signs and individual characteristics. Imaging procedures such as ultrasound support the diagnosis and help to rule out other diseases. Our highly qualified experts guarantee a precise diagnosis and the best possible basis for your further treatment.

The aim of treatment is to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. Conservative methods such as manual lymphatic drainage, compression garments, specially adapted diet plans and exercise therapy are used.

In advanced stages, when conservative therapy is often no longer sufficient, liposuction for Lipedema is the only effective way to alleviate symptoms and adjust body contours. At our treatment centres, we use the gentle PAL method (power-assisted liposuction) under general anaesthetic, which allows us to proceed in an extremely tissue-friendly manner and remove significantly more fatty tissue than would be possible with purely aesthetic liposuction. In addition, we will give you personalised nutritional tips that have brought good results for Lipedema patients to date, such as a ketogenic diet. To counteract any post-operative skin slackening, we also carry out accompanying scarless skin tightening. Surgical tightening is also an option for severe findings. Our holistic approach ensures that both your health and aesthetic needs are met and customised to your individual requirements.
