You are not alone.

Are you suffering from physical or emotional pain due to your lipedema? If so, you are not alone. Lipedema is one of the most poorly understood diseases in the United States, often dismissed as obesity. This chronic condition causes extra fat to collect in the lower part of the body or the upper arms and can manifest as many symptoms.

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.

Dr. Shapira specializes in Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction. Liposuction for Lipedema is the most effective treatment for Lipedema at this time. 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.
