Our featured before & after pictures are actual patients who suffer from the debilitating effects of Lipedema. Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction (WAL) was performed to remove excess fat in the lower extremities thus resulting in greater mobility and improved overall health.
In order to treat each patient’s unique physical condition, medical experts developed a system that categorizes the amount and location of fatty tissue. This system is a combination of staging and type identification to effectively treat lipedema. Learn more+
Patients who receive WAL treatment at The Lipedema Liposuction Center in Roswell, GA are healthier, happier, and feel better about themselves than ever before!
During the WAL procedure a total of 10,000 ml of fluid and 4,800 ml of fat was removed from her legs.
This patient had stage 3 Lipedema and elected to have the WAL procedure to prevent progression, decrease strain on her knees, and reduce the pain in her lower legs. After a thorough evaluation the medical team decided to only perform WAL on her inner legs. Her pain was limited to the area below the knees so it was important to treat this area first to improve her gait and reduce strain on her joints.
The pictures above were taken by the patient at home before and after her procedure. Her ankles are greatly improved allowing improved mobility. The “after” photo was taken 2 months after her procedure.
This patient’s before photos clearly show the marked surgical areas from the knee area to ankles.
This patient had two separate procedures in the leg area. The after pictures were taken three following her WAL procedure. For more information about this patient’s procedure click here.

She noticed changes in her legs as early as age 12 and had dramatic enlargement after the birth of her first child.

Her procedure was done under local anesthesia utilizing Water Jet Assisted Liposuction (WAL). She is extremely happy with the results!
