Liposuction Experts Speak on the Only Known Treatment for a Fat Storage Disorder Affecting Millions of Women
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Liposuction experts, Dr. David Amron and Dr. Jason Emer, will speak about lipedema at the Fat Disorders Research Society's convention, Fat Disorders: Treatment and Understanding, in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at the Washington Hilton Hotel. Focusing on treatment, the two Beverly Hills surgeons will discuss how their specialized liposuction techniques have lead to life-changing results in lipedema patients.
The Fat Disorders Research Society (FDSR) will be holding the two-day event in an effort to gather the leading physicians and researchers in the field to discuss, educate, and collaborate on adipose tissue disorders and treatment options. The agenda will include presentations and Q&A panels with the country's foremost specialists and pioneers in lipedema.
"Lipedema is a fat disorder that is all too often mistreated," says Dr. Amron. "Much of this mistreatment exists, quite simply, due to the fact that many physicians are still greatly unfamiliar with the disorder. At the FDSR conference I hope to not only impart my knowledge and understanding of lipedema to my colleagues, but to also share exactly how I've been able to successfully treat the disorder through specialized liposuction."
Impacting more than 17 million women nationwide, lipedema, a fat storage condition which may lead to immobility in some patients, can only be treated with pure tumescent liposuction, a procedure both Dr. Amron and Dr. Emer are experts in.
"Despite liposuction being an incredibly viable solution to lipedema, there are many doctors still uncomfortable treating those with the disorder," explains Dr. Emer. "This is mostly because the areas being treated-the calves, ankles, knees, etc.-require meticulous attention to detail and specialized training to ensure a safe and natural-looking result. It is my hope that the FSDS convention will provide some much-needed awareness and forward movement on the subject."
