INNOVATIVE LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT FOR LIPEDEMA
Dr. Amron’s Precise Approach for Treating Lipedema
“ Finally, after ample research, I found Dr. David Amron, a lipo-sculpture specialist with more than 20 years experience in his field.

Using his anesthesia-free pure tumescent liposuction and unique technique, he put an end to my lipedema symptoms once and for all. It was finally over.” Jasna
Dr. David Amron utilizes an innovative liposuction treatment for lipedema patients. His approach is a highly specialized and technical method to achieve optimal body contouring results. Dr. Amron advises women suffering with lipedema that surgical intervention by liposuction to remove the disproportionate fat storage tissue is the only recognized treatment that can truly alter the course of lipedema. He has established the most effective lipedema treatment known today.
WHAT IS DR. ARMON’S APPROACH TO LIPOSUCTION FOR LIPEDEMA PATIENTS AND WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
Some doctors who only approach treating the lymphatic aspect don’t really understand the disease completely in terms of how important the fat storage part is along with it. Dr. Amron strongly believes performing the surgery under purely tumescent Water-Assisted Liposuction (WAL) is the safest approach, and there are advantages to this method.
- It’s a much safer than performing liposuction under general anesthesia.
- It helps prepare the tissue by reducing the bleeding during the surgery and getting a much more pure removal of the fat.
- The recovery time using purely tumescent Water-Assisted Liposuction is much faster. Patients are typically able to get up and walk around as quickly as 15 or 20 minutes after the surgery.
- Patients show a dramatic improvement in pain, discomfort and bruising.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR DR. AMRON’S LIPEDEMA LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE?
It is important to begin with an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Amron lipedema patients undergo a comprehensive medical evaluation process. This evaluation is important so that he can determine if you are truly a candidate for liposuction and the specific areas that will be treated.

What is Dr. Amron’s Surgical Technique?
Dr. Amron has a unique three-dimensional contouring approach to treat lipedema, and views each body part in a complete, comprehensive three-dimensional fashion. He approaches each cosmetic unit one at a time, rather than breaking it up into different procedures and surgeries. This allows Dr. Amron to remove all the diseased fat from a particular body part in one single surgery.
With more than two decades of liposuction experience, Dr. Amron has perfected his surgical technique, which involves precise placement of the axis, or incision points, to approach every area of the body with respect for tissue settling and lymphatic flow. Dr. Amron is extremely careful to stay only within a specific layer of fat to ensure he performs each procedure in a lymphatic sparing manner.
WAL (Water Assisted Liposuction) is first used to anesthetize and hydrodissect the fatty tissue.
Dr. Amron uses a combination of various techniques and devices to precisely remove the diseased fat and sculpt particular areas of the body. After the incision points are placed, using various cannulas, Dr. Amron will start deeply in the layer of the fat, gradually de-bulking from the bottom up.
He will commonly employ the use of Power-Assisted Liposuction as a vibration device to help emulsify the fat and soften the firm fibrotic nodules, which are common in lipedema patients. However, with certain patients who may have more fibrous areas or suffer from Dercum’s disease, Dr. Amron may employ the use of Laser-Assisted Liposuction to further emulsify fibrous areas of the body.
Depending on the degree of tissue and skin elasticity, Dr. Amron may also use another laser with two other energy settings (1320 and 1064 nanometer wavelengths) to obtain additional skin tightening and improve cellulite. His approach aims to achieve not only the best functional results, but also the best aesthetic results for every patient. Dr. Amron will then leave the majority of the incision points open for proper drainage of the excess fluid.
WHERE IS THE LIPEDEMA LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
Dr. Amron’s surgeries are performed in a fully licensed accredited surgical center. Most of Dr. Amron’s lipedema liposuction surgeries are between 1-3 hours depending on the targeted areas. Dr. Amron stresses that the majority of patient areas can be done usually in one to two surgeries.
Rarely, a third surgery is needed if there are extensive areas involving the entire legs, arms, and torso. Time between surgeries is usually 2 days – 4 weeks depending on the patient. Each case is individualized, and Dr. Amron will thoroughly explain your lipedema liposuction procedure.
WILL I EXPERIENCE PAIN AND/OR DISCOMFORT DURING THE LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE?
Dr. Amron explains that most patients feel little discomfort throughout the entire procedure. However, preoperative mild sedatives are available to help reduce nervousness.
For those patients who prefer conscious sedation, it is available with an anesthesiologist but is rarely necessary.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS & WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
For liposuction in general, the recovery time is about a year to see the final results. But this is also true for lipedema patients, in particular.
Once the fat tissue is removed through liposuction surgery, the swelling in these lipedema patients is greatly reduced. Dr. Amron’s patients frequently experience a great resolution of their symptoms, such as the chronic pain and discomfort they previously endured.
Usually the final results appear at 12 months. At the six-month mark, most patients have about 75 to 80 percent of their final improvement. At the three-month mark, they see about 50 to 60 percent of their final improvement.
