Treatment of lipedema

Lipoedema is a chronic condition characterized by abnormal accumulation of fatty tissue, especially around the hips, thighs and calves. The condition is usually hereditary and mainly affects women. Groruddalsklinikken is a renowned clinic in Norway that specializes in the treatment of lipedema and offers a wide range of therapeutic options to help patients manage this condition.

At Groruddalsklinikken, we offer a comprehensive approach to the treatment of lipoedema. Our experienced team of doctors and therapists work together to develop customized treatment plans that take into account each patient’s unique needs and goals. We focus on reducing the symptoms of lipoedema, improving the quality of life and increasing the patient’s self-confidence.

An important part of the treatment for lipedema is conservative therapy. This includes lifestyle changes such as dietary changes and regular exercise. Our nutritionists can help patients develop healthy eating habits that can help reduce inflammation and the accumulation of adipose tissue. In addition, our physiotherapists can guide patients on the correct exercise technique to strengthen the muscles and improve blood circulation.

For patients with more serious symptoms, Groruddalsklinikken can offer surgical alternatives such as liposculpture. This is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the removal of excess fatty tissue using specialized instruments. Liposculpture can help improve body proportions and reduce pain and swelling associated with lipedema.

In addition to conservative therapy and surgical options, Groruddalsklinikken can also offer compression therapy. This involves the use of specially designed compression garments to reduce swelling and improve lymphatic drainage. Our therapists will guide patients on the correct use of compression garments and provide the necessary training to ensure optimal effect.

At Groruddalsklinikken, we are keen to give our patients the best care and support they need to manage lipoedema. We work closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that fits their individual needs and goals. Our experienced team is dedicated to delivering high quality treatment and ensuring that our patients achieve the best possible outcome.
