PANTEA: Effective treatments for lipedema

PANTEA from Munich: Information on the disease lipedema

Do I have lipedema?

Every treatment at PANTEA® in Munich starts with a thorough examination and a personal consultation. Lipoedema can manifest itself in different ways, so a customized approach is very important. We take a lot of time for this step.

At PANTEA, your lipedema is treated correctly!

A lack of awareness of lipoedema often leads to misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment. Those affected often live with the condition for 5 to 15 years without knowing about it before they receive the right treatment. The correct diagnosis and treatment of lipoedema is very important in order to prevent secondary conditions such as orthopaedic deformities or the development of secondary lipoedema, which is difficult to treat.

Put yourself in the hands of the experts at PANTEA® and contact us for a consultation.

We are also happy to advise you on the topics of pregnancy and hormones in lipoedema. We also differentiate the clinical picture from other, but similarly impressive diseases such as obesity or lymphoedema.

Diets don't help? Lipedema may be behind it!

Many of our patients are of normal weight, take care of their bodies and still despair. A healthy diet, regular sport and exercise - these measures are usually regarded as the cornerstones of a healthy, slim life. Despite all the diets, sometimes the number on the scales does not go down. The cause could be lipoedema.

The same applies if your body is going through a phase of hormonal change, such as during puberty, pregnancy or the menopause. Another sign is if you gain weight and your arms and legs become increasingly sensitive to pain. This can also be caused by lipoedema. The good news first: there is help!

According to current research, it is not curable, but it can be treated in two ways with very good results: conservatively or surgically via liposuction (surgical removal of the fat).

Lipedema treated conservatively

This includes lymphatic drainage, compression garments, a balanced and healthy diet, self-management, exercise and sport.

Surgical treatment of lipedema (liposuction)

The team of specialists at PANTEA® specializes in the surgical treatment of lipoedema. If necessary, liposuction can be supplemented with surgical body tightening or intraoperative body tightening via laser.

Questions about the treatment of your lipoedema:

The "PANTEA® method" was developed by Dr. Anna-Theresa Lipp and her team of specialists. All PANTEA® procedures are carried out according to this medical approach.

This is a standardized, very effective and particularly lymph-friendly and established liposuction technique (PAL = power assisted liposuction). The highest possible, medically acceptable amount of fatty tissue is gently removed.

The advantages:

  • the abnormal lipoedema fat is removed radically and at the same time gently and in a medically acceptable volume
  • attention is paid not only to the medical side, but also to the best aesthetic result
  • Pain is relieved and the shape of the arms and legs is optimized

Every specialist at PANTEA® is trained for months according to this treatment approach and undergoes numerous operations under the guidance of Dr. Anna-Theresa Lipp before performing independent procedures.

The result: the treatment results of all PANTEA® specialists always meet the highest quality standards.

The doctors at PANTEA® have been researching the causes and treatment options for lipoedema for years together with two university professors and a research team from our partner universities. The exact triggers of the disease are still unclear.

Current research findings suggest that genetic factors play a role in the development of the disease, as affected women often report other family members with the disease.

Since lipoedema usually occurs in phases of hormonal change (e.g. puberty, pregnancy, menopause etc.) and often develops progressively, it is assumed that hormonal changes influence its development.

However, it is important to note that hormones alone are not responsible for lipoedema. Although there is often an imbalance in certain hormone regulatory circuits, this is not detectable in all patients.

The lymphatic system plays an important role in the body, as it transports dead cells, protein and fat cells, bacteria and metabolic products, and removes fluid from the tissue to maintain fluid balance in the body.

It is also assumed that the lymph vessels lose their transport capacity, which leads to a build-up of fat- and protein-rich substances. As a result, fewer and fewer fat cells can be removed.

Lipoedema is not caused by a lack of exercise or a poor diet. However, it is often associated with being overweight. This in itself is not a trigger for the disease, but can worsen the symptoms.

Although there is no cure for lipoedema, there are forms of treatment available to relieve the pain and discomfort of those affected in everyday life. In addition to improving symptoms, treatment also aims to prevent complications, such as the development of secondary lymphoedema or orthopaedic malpositions.

For many patients, conservative treatment of lipoedema is the first option before surgery.

If conservative treatment measures (e.g. manual lymphatic drainage, compression garments, dietary changes, possibly in conjunction with nutritional support using specific dietary supplements and nutrients as well as exercise and sport, etc.) have been exhausted and no sufficient improvement in symptoms or findings has been achieved, an individual treatment plan will be drawn up in a consultation at PANTEA® in Munich.

We pursue a holistic therapy concept and accompany our patients from conservative therapy through to surgery.

Liposuction for lipoedema is the surgical removal of abnormal fatty tissue. This leads to a long-term reduction in the diseased subcutaneous fatty tissue. Dr. Anna-Theresa Lipp and her team of specialists from Munich have developed the "PANTEA® method" for this purpose. This is a standardized, very effective and particularly lymph-friendly and established liposuction technique (PAL = power assisted liposuction), which can be used to gently remove the highest possible, medically acceptable amounts of fatty tissue.

Each PANTEA® specialist undergoes months of intensive training in the application of this method in a large number of operations to ensure that the treatment results of our patients with each specialist meet the highest possible quality standards of PANTEA®.

Liposuction for lipoedema involves the long-term surgical removal of abnormal fat. Our aim is always to use our standardized "PANTEA® method" to remove the maximum medically acceptable volume of fat as gently as possible while achieving the best possible aesthetic result.

All PANTEA® specialists follow our standardized holistic treatment approach and have learned the "PANTEA® method" through intensive collaboration with Dr. med. Anna-Theresa Lipp in a large number of joint operations. This ensures that the treatment results of all our PANTEA® specialists always meet our highest possible quality standards.

In our private practice for plastic & aesthetic surgery and our center for lipedema surgery in Munich, we not only accompany our patients before and during lipedema treatment in Munich, but also support them after the treatment in their pain-free life with a new quality of life as a trustworthy companion.

Lipoedema is a chronic, progressive, symmetrical fat distribution disorder. This means that the disease can worsen significantly over time without treatment.

If lipoedema is not treated, it often leads to so-called lipolymphedema after 15 to 20 years, which is virtually resistant to treatment.

As the causes of lipoedema have not yet been researched, there is unfortunately currently no therapeutic approach to completely cure the disease.

However, with holistic therapy at our clinic in Munich, the chances of alleviating or even virtually eliminating the symptoms are very good.

Conservative therapy has a short-term effect and is a symptomatic therapy. It can therefore alleviate pain and other complaints, but cannot permanently eliminate them.

Liposuction is the surgical removal of abnormal fat cells. Liposuction does not provide a complete cure, but it can achieve a lasting long-term improvement in symptoms.
