What our patients in Münster say

I had a thorough, detailed and very competent consultation with Lipocura today. I was offered appointments patiently and in a friendly manner beforehand until it worked out for me. I was thoroughly examined and the findings were clarified with an ultrasound. I can only recommend Lipocura.

A very friendly doctor. Took a lot of time to explain the next steps to me in detail. The doctor’s assistant was also very courteous and friendly

Nina R



I only made the appointment with Lipocura because my endocrinologist “persuaded” me to do so.Now I am infinitely grateful to have made and kept the appointment!The atmosphere was very pleasant right from the start. I received a friendly welcome and was given detailed and understandable advice. After the consultation, I received all the documents by e-mail and there were even 2 “readings” on the subject of lipoedema. I can definitely recommend Lipocura. Many thanks to the team!

How does the Consultation at LIPOCURA® in Münster work?

During our initial consultation in Münster, 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
    The first step is to take a detailed medical history, during which we discuss your symptoms and medical history in detail. Our experienced Lipedema specialists take plenty of time to understand your individual situation. It is important to us to create a basis of trust so that you feel safe and understood. We listen to you carefully and take all relevant aspects of your medical history into account.
  • Diagnosis
    We then carry out various diagnostic procedures in order to make an accurate diagnosis. These include the pinch test, which we use to test the sensitivity of the tissue to pressure. We also use ultrasound to visualise the fat layers and differentiate Lipedema from other diseases. These examinations help us to accurately assess the progression of your Lipedema.
  • Planning
    Based on the results of the medical history and diagnostics, we develop a personalised treatment plan for you. An important part of this planning is the creation of a 3D scan with the MyLIPOAvatar, which records important parameters such as body fat percentage and posture. We want to ensure that your treatment plan is optimally tailored to your needs, and at the end of the Consultation we will give you the LIPO BOOK to take home with you. It contains important information about Lipedema and helps you to become fully informed about your condition. You will also receive the LIPO journal in which you can document your progress and notes. This means you always have an overview of all the important information and your personal development.

We support you with the initial diagnosis and are happy to clarify an existing diagnosis or provide you with a second opinion. We also offer you a corrective consultation if you have already had liposuction that did not go satisfactorily. Of course, we will also answer your general questions to make it easier for you to decide in favour of liposuction. Put your trust in our expertise and let us give you comprehensive advice.

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 fat distribution disorder that mainly affects women. The condition often occurs during hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy or the menopause. Lipedema is typically characterised by symmetrical accumulations of fat on the arms and legs that are not proportional to the rest of the body.

There is no proven cure for Lipedema. However, there are various treatment options to alleviate the symptoms and improve the quality of life of those affected. These include conservative treatment approaches such as compression therapy, manual lymphatic drainage and exercise therapy. Surgical removal of the fat cells by liposuction can also be considered in order to reduce the symptoms in the long term.

Typical symptoms of Lipedema are symmetrical accumulations of fat on the hips, thighs and legs that are not proportional to the rest of the body. Those affected often suffer from pain, swelling and increased sensitivity to pressure in the affected areas. In addition, bruising often occurs without any recognisable cause and the skin may feel cold and tight.
To determine whether you suffer from Lipedema, you can carry out our self-test. This test can provide an initial indication, but does not replace a diagnosis by a specialist. If you suspect you have Lipedema, we recommend that you make an appointment at our specialist centre for a professional diagnosis and consultation.

The exact causes of Lipedema are not yet fully understood, but there are various factors that are suspected of favouring the disease. As Lipedema often runs in families, a hereditary predisposition plays an important role. Hormonal influences, in particular changes in oestrogen and progesterone levels, are also known triggers. This explains why Lipedema often occurs during hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause.

It is also suspected that a malfunction of the lymphatic vessels can contribute to the development of Lipedema, as this can lead to a disturbed distribution of fat and fluid accumulation in the tissue. Being overweight is not a cause of Lipedema, although many sufferers also suffer from obesity. The condition occurs regardless of body weight and requires specific medical treatment.

At our central consultation centre in Münster, we welcome you in modern and comfortable premises to carry out a precise and well-founded assessment of your state of health. Thanks to our many years of experience and extensive expertise, we are able to make an accurate diagnosis.

The diagnostic process begins with a detailed medical history interview, in which we record your medical history and current complaints in detail. We then carry out a thorough physical examination, paying 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 structure of the fatty tissue are checked.

We also use imaging techniques such as ultrasound to assess the structure of the fatty tissue more precisely and rule out other diseases. This comprehensive diagnosis enables us to create a precise picture of your state of health and develop a customised treatment strategy.

Our specialised LIPOTEAM in Münster has set itself the goal of 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.

Our treatment is primarily aimed at alleviating the symptoms and improving the quality of life of our patients. As a first step, we recommend conservative therapy, which has helped many patients a great deal, including in preparation for an operation. These include, for example, manual lymphatic drainage, wearing compression garments and exercise therapy. These measures are designed to reduce swelling, alleviate pain and improve general well-being.

In advanced stages of the disease, however, conservative therapies often reach their limits. In such cases, liposuction can effectively alleviate the symptoms and correct the body contour. We carry out these procedures in our partner clinics throughout Germany using the gentle PAL method (Power-Assisted Liposuction). With this tissue-sparing and precise method, we can remove significantly more fat than with conventional aesthetic liposuction.

To support the healing process, we give our patients individualised nutritional recommendations that have proven successful in practice. To optimise the aesthetic result, we also offer scar-free skin tightening. Surgical skin tightening can also be considered in cases of severe excess skin.

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.
