Successful treatment of lipedema at the LipoClinic Dr. Heck. The long ordeal of the patient’s suffering is often characterised by ignorance and a lack of understanding of the disease and subsequently how it affects the quality of life of those diagnosed with lipedema. With our many years of experience, we help to successfully treat the lipedema and support our patients in taking the step into their "new life".
Our core values serve to achieve our goals. We live and breathe these values every day in all we do or say, both internally and externally. Our values are being fulfilled every day in everything we do and say.
At the beginning of the 2000s, Dr. Falk-Christian Heck first came into contact with a previously unknown disease – lipedema. The clinical picture of the affected women was met with neither acceptance nor understanding by the doctors. Even today, in many cases lipedema is still misdiagnosed as overweight or obesity (adiposity). The disease often remains undetected for a long time. Those affected suffer from shame, self-reproach and frustration.
As an experienced surgeon, Dr. Heck developed a completely new and sustainably effective surgical method, the lipedema surgery (lipo-decompression), which
- stops the lipedema
- is a pain-free surgery
- eliminates the need for compression garments
- improves the quality of life
These are still our goals today at the LipoClinic!
Costs of a lipedema liposuction
Since September 2019, health insurance companies have been covering the costs of medical liposuctions for very severe stage III cases. However, patients must meet certain requirements to obtain a coverage by the health insurance. Each patient is different and the treatment at the LipoClinic is individually tailored. The costs for a lipedema surgery therefore depends on the complexity of the surgery and the aftercare required.
