I have not felt this good in years! I had lipedema surgery with Dr. Schwartz last year. I had 31+ liters of fat removed in 4 surgeries from my legs, arms and torso. Dr Schwartz is very easy to talk with, is incredibly kind and empathetic. The care and follow up was second to none. Now that I am about 1 year out from my second surgery with Dr. Schwartz and 6 months out from my final surgery I have to say I couldn’t be more pleased. Actually I am ecstatic!! My mobility has drastically improved. Walking, exercising, simple day to day activities are so much easier. Sitting crossed legged on the ground, working in the yard, riding a bike, playing with my pups, all sooo much more enjoyable. Clothes fit better and I feel more normal. I can’t believe it when I see my reflection that it is actually me. When I try on clothes I no longer have to look for wide leg pants or large sleeves. Friends who I haven’t seen comment on how healthy I look and on my weight loss. Each day and week I continue to see improvements in my mobility, appearance and how my clothes fit.
I had had 3 surgeries with a different, well known, supposed expert lipedema surgeon 3 years prior to my meeting Dr. Schwartz. Those surgeries were a dismal failure. There was no significant decrease in size and the lipedema came back with a painful vengeance. It was a big decision to jump back in and trust a different surgeon. It was and is the best decision I have made for my health and quality of life. Thank you Dr, Schwartz and your wonderful team!!
