Symptoms and stages of lipedema
Many lipedema patients do not know about their disease for a long time. They believe that they are simply overweight. They suffer from a chronic fat distribution disorder that does not go away through exercise or diet.
Typical symptoms of lipedema are legs or sometimes arms with lots of fat. There often is also swelling and pain, which increases as the day progresses. Some patients are also sensitive to bumps and develop bruises quickly.
Since these complaints cannot be dealt with by exercise and dieting, many of those affected people do not know what to do next. But there are ways to effectively alleviate the symptoms!

Tailor-made lipedema treatment in southern Germany
Are you slim but have swollen legs? Or are you not only struggling with lipedema, but also obesity, varicose veins, or other comorbidities? We carefully check your status quo to put together the right lipedema therapy for you.
Our experienced interdisciplinary team of doctors will advise you professionally and empathically. Since lipedema is a chronic disease that can repeatedly require treatments, we are your reliable partner for a lifetime if necessary.
We offer the full spectrum of lipedema therapies for legs and arms
The goal of our efforts is to make life with lipedema as comfortable as possible for you. If conservative measures such as decongestion therapy are not sufficient, we can carry out liposuction on request. According to a study, around 22% of patients no longer need any therapy after liposuction, and around 58% can significantly reduce conservative treatment.
Experience report from one of our patients
About Lipedema Center Munich
“When I found out that I had lipedema. On the one hand, I was relieved because I finally knew why I couldn’t lose weight. On the other hand, I was wondering what to do now. Then I went to Prof. Kovacs. At first I was worried about what the lipedema doctor would think of me. But I immediately felt like home in the practice. From the first second I knew I was in the right place!”
