Your Surgical Protocol

Our team will provide you with an Information Pack outlining all you need to know about booking and undergoing surgery, as well as how to prepare and what to expect after surgery.

THE SURGICAL PROTOCOL WILL BE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL HOWEVER, THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES OF THE SURGERY ARE;

  • Dr Lekich takes a holistic, medical approach to your condition, not a cosmetic one, although aesthetic improvements follow.
  • Diagnosis and treatment are underpinned by onsite ultrasound for a complete approach to managing comorbidities such as varicose veins and monitor progress post surgery (DVT surveillance and seroma management)
  • Surgery is performed using the lymph-sparing German protocol
  • Minimally invasive technique for LipoExtraction surgery, using tiny incisions with no long scars
  • Symmetrical approach where both legs (or arms) are treated at the same time to optimise balance, function and form
  • Staged approach to completely remove all the Lipoedema fat from the hips all the way to the ankles (and from the arms – shoulders to wrist) so the fat does not return!
  • Surgery takes place in a purpose-built, licensed hospital with an overnight stay
  • Specialist anaesthetists are used with a focus on early ambulation so that patients can walk out into recovery to prevent DVT.
  • The intervals between surgeries is usually 6-8 weeks
  • Post operative flat knit compression garments and manual lymphatic drainage is required, long-term this will not be required.
  • The approach and order of surgery may be modified depending on the impact of the Lipoedema tissue.
