What to Expect

Current and future lipedema patients can expect a more customized, comprehensive action plan in the treatment of their lipedema symptoms and progression, while being introduced to revolutionary nutrition and dietary plans and body-benefitting supplements. While Dr. Schwartz will treat patients using his famous surgical and physically altering methods, such as traditional liposuction and manual lipedema extraction, Dr. Herbst will assist patients in lifestyle modifications and nutritional supplement therapies for more synergized, effective results.
