This is what Dr. Byrd did for me! I will never forget her hugging me and telling me she was doing what she was called to do!
You won’t have a better caring doctor than Dr. Marcia Byrd! She’s the bomb! I’ve had the works and couldn’t be more satisfied.

t’s been 6 weeks since my second leg surgery with Dr. Byrd. My first was in October and second mid November. I am so thankful to Dr. Marcia Byrd for changing my life! My pain is gone and I am ecstatic with my results and it’s only been a MONTH!!! My legs were heavy and swollen all the time. This picture was taken in July and the second was taken today (I took my first break from wearing the garment today after 6 weeks from my 2nd surgery-but I do plan on wearing it the full 8 weeks). Can’t wait to see what the future months will look like. Thank you thank you thank you Dr. Byrd for my “Byrd” legs

June 2017 while on a tour of Portugal and Spain a lovely Australian lady told me about Lipedema. I went to hotel room looked it up and cried for an hour. The tree trunks legs, the bruising, the pain!! it had a name and a death sentence. My poor Mom suffered her entire life and never knew it was NOT her fault. Started research and getting diagnosed.
As a child I knew my legs were shaped weird but they didn’t start exploding until puberty, then 2 pregnancies, then hysterectomy at age 42, then viral meningitis (steroids)in 2009. It seems like hormonal or traumatic illness ready escalates the growth. Oh how I wish I had know at an earlier age. I may have chosen other options than hysterectomy. And I certainly would have eliminated carbs and sugar.

Okay Ladies, I put $2000 down and scheduled two surgeries with Dr. Byrd in Atlanta, GA for October 30 and nov 1. I’m not sure if insurance will pay, but we are going to try! Her office is so helpful and I am so excited! I would never had gotten the nerve without this fb site and all the glorious success stories. I look forward to sharing mine soon!! Saying goodbye to these lippy legs!!
OCT. 30 and Nov 1, 2018 WAL upper and lower legs, 14.5 liters removed 2 surgeries. Dr. Marcia Byrd, Roswell, GA. $20,000 USD
Dec. 2018. I sent photos to Dr. Byrd tonight and have to share with group. I had a fall and facial surgery so it has not been an easy recovery. But my sister who was with me in Georgia is here this week and said we are taking photos. I’m blown away. I’m beyond excited. More later. My husband is nominated for employee of the year and we have award dinner Dec. 7th. Hoping to wear a dress!! (I did) I have not worn a dress in 30 years.
I just had my year follow up with Dr. Byrd. Im scheduled for touch up on Nov. 8 on knees and ankles!! #lifeisgood
Lost 30 pounds post surgery and total of 50 since surgery.. Follow lazy keto, walk 1 to 2 miles a day, ride bike 2 or 3 times a week, yoga and move, move, move!! I wear compression, do pump several times a week.
Size 16 to size 12. 230 lbs to 180 lb. 6′ 1″ tall
July 2021 Update. So covid has been difficult. I gained 10 pounds but working hard to get it off. Keto is the key for me. It doesn’t work for everyone but find what works for you. My daughter is getting married July 3 2022 so extra incentive to get back to 180.
Good luck to each of you.

My dad’s wife took this photo yesterday and I always cringe when my legs are going to be in a photo. But when I saw it, I realized really what a great job you did and that I need to get over my lifelong history of “cankles”. I still wear compression almost all the time, and know if I didn’t my legs would look a lot different because I can feel the swelling. But how wonderful to play in the water or wear shorts for a while feeling “normal”! You are awesome!
