We use our international network to exchange knowledge and pass on our standards. In this way we want to accompany as many affected people as possible into a new life without physical and mental pain. A life full of self-confidence, mobility and femininity. Together with our partners at home and abroad, we are achieving our goal of sustainably freeing women all over the world from their lipedema. For their well-being, we work closely with a broad network of doctors, researchers and scientists and are strongly involved in the German Society for Lipedema Surgery (DGfLC).


Our patient rooms are bright and comfortably furnished and offer a relaxed and positive atmosphere for your quick regeneration. Time flies even faster during a good conversation with your room neighbor or an exciting series on Netflix.


After a lipedema operation, your body needs a lot of strength to recover from the surgery. We support you with healthy and tasty food to quickly regain your strength. We focus on light and digestible food, which we prepare freshly for our patients every day.

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 lipo-decompression

Since September 2019, health insurance companies have been covering the costs of medical lipo-decompression 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.
