Knowledgeable, compassionate lipedema care management.

You are not alone.

Are you suffering from physical or emotional pain due to your lipedema? If so, you are not alone. Lipedema affects nearly 11% of adult women worldwide. Despite this statistic, it is one of the most poorly understood diseases in the United States, often dismissed as obesity. This chronic condition causes extra fat in the upper and lower limbs, trunk, buttock, and arms. The condition is caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system. In some cases, a manual lymphatic drainage massage can relieve pressure from lymph fluid buildup.

It is important to understand that this condition isn’t your fault, and Dr. Shapira and his staff are here to help. Here you will find a knowledgeable surgeon who is dedicated to your health and well-being. Our friendly, compassionate staff is here to assist you throughout your journey. First State Lipedema can diagnose and treat the condition to help you achieve a healthy weight and increase mobility.

Relieve Swollen Limbs and Achieve a Healthy Weight

Dr. Shapira specializes in Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction. Liposuction for Lipedema is the most effective treatment for Lipedema at this time. Treating Lipedema can help you manage symptoms, reduce pain in the upper and lower body, and reduce lipedema fat. Without treatment, Lipedema will continue to progress and can lead to more serious issues. Dr. Shapira was trained by renowned Lipedema treatment surgeon and pioneer of Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction (WAL), Dr. Josef Stutz, from Schwarzenbach Am Wald, Germany.
