Dr. Wright Featured in Local News Story About Lipedema

The lipedema services offered by Dr. Wright and his team at Laser Liposuction & Vein Center are some of the best available in the entire state of Missouri. If you have read through our detailed descriptions and are still not sure if our team is right for you, look to what our former patients have had to say. Former patient, Mindy Elam, was featured in a recent online article by NBC 5 about how our incredible weight loss in Michigan services were able to change her life for the better.

More Than a Diet Change

When diagnosed with lipedema, you will need more than just a diet change to find a comfortable way of living. Mindy received her diagnosis in May but believes the condition may have been present since she was just 13 years old. Symptoms of lipedema beyond disproportionate fat accumulation can include aching legs, difficulty moving, easy bruising, broken veins, and more. Even though Mindy believes she has always been on the bigger side, her diagnosis of lipedema was able to identify one source of her weight issues.

What is Lipedema?

Lipedema is more common than many people might realize. Dr. Wright reports that lipedema can impact 1-10% of the female population. Lipedema typically impacts women after they hit puberty and is a subcutaneous fat disorder. This fat tissue can set in more quickly with added stress, hormonal changes, and surgery. Some physicians may not provide a formal diagnosis and only state that the patient needs to lose weight. As lipedema patients already know, it can be extremely difficult to lose even a little bit of this subcutaneous fat tissue.
