I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.

  • Dr Sommer in Frankfurt am Main (he has also written books on this subject). I felt really good and everything went great

  • In Hessen: Dermatology Clinic Darmstadt-Eberstadt Dr. Müller and Dr. Kovacs
    are also two very good doctors with a lot of experience in lipedema liposuction

    • Hello Ms. Scheib, do you have experience with Dr. Kovacs? Did he operate on you? Unfortunately, I can't find any ratings for it .... thank you for your feedback!

  • In Schleswig-Holstein, among other things, both university clinics and operate
    Lubinusklinik Kiel the lipedema

  • Hello, and thanks for the list. Mannheim, however, is in Baden-Württemberg and not in Rhineland-Palatinate… ..

  • Hello 🙂
    Dr. I absolutely cannot recommend Klesper in HH !! I was there for advice and it was such that I would never have had an operation there in my life. Only designed for beauty and definitely not specialized in lipedema.

    In the Lipoclinic in Mühlheim, Dr. Stefan Welss doesn't know 😀

  • Practice Dr. Ryssel in Mannheim probably did too much advertising ... was there in July 18, should report me on December 18 about an appointment, now unfortunately only appointments 20 are free again ... you are totally left alone, therapy support I imagine different

  • Hello, thanks for all this great information! Unfortunately, I had a previous operation and didn't know anything about my lipedema at the time. Is there a doctor who would be particularly recommended in this case? My legs have a lot of waves and dents and nobody really wants to run. I would be grateful for your help! Greetings Anja

  • Hallo,
    Last year I had a liposuction of the legs in the Czech Republic in Prague in Yes Visage at Primar Molitor and I am very satisfied with the result, it was worth it.
    Best regards,

  • Hello!
    Dr. Dörr, MVZ Zweibrücken, Reinland Palatinate operates in the Catholic Hospital St. Elisabeth Zweibrücken.

  • Dear Caroline! The lipoclinic where Dr. Heck operates, is in Mülheim an der Ruhr. But this Mülheim is definitely written without an "h"! Otherwise I have nothing to complain about! I think the listing is generally good. I would also like to add that very good and committed doctors operate in the St. Josef Hospital in Essen-Kupferdreh, and they have recently set up a competence center there. Another competence center exists in the Essen district of Steele. It is the Krupp Steele, and there the plastic surgeon Prof. Dr. Houses.

  • Hello everyone,
    Does anyone have experience with Dr. Steiner (Wittenbergplatz Berlin)? She is in the practice of Dr. Labschies. I would be happy about experiences!
    Kind regards, Anni

  • Perhaps one should visit the private clinic of Prof. Dr. Relink Proebstle in Mannheim:

    My wife just had her leg op's last week and we can highly recommend this doctor.
    Here, the entire legs are operated on within two consecutive days (Monday lower leg + knee, Tuesday thigh with laser tightening), so that the entire healing process only has to be experienced once and after about 6 weeks the compression corset can be taken off again.
