What is Lipolymphedema?

Lipolymphedema occurs when lipedema, obesity, and lymphedema are present together. This generally involves both lower extremities.

Therapeutic Approach:

Lipolymphedema treatment is the same as lymphedema treatment. Complete decongestive therapy (CDT) includes a combination of skin care, lymphatic drainage, compression therapy, and exercise. CDT has shown good long-term results for lypolymphedema.

Patients with this condition should also seek dietary guidance to reduce weight.
