Lipoedema is a condition that leads to extra fat and fluid being retained in the lower section of the body. That includes the calves thighs, and buttocks. In some cases, patients can develop this adipose tissue disorder in the upper arms, but lipoedema rarely affects the feet or hands.

Lipoedema presents in different stages, also known as levels of progression. Those with an advanced stage of lipoedema, have the classic “column leg” look & cuffing. Lipoedema is associated with pain, easy bruising, and a mass of nodular fat.

You will need a consultation with Dr Ken Macdonald.  (Please note we do not offer zoom or phone consultations)
