More Information on Lipoedema UK site


Lipoedema UK’s First Conference for Allied Healthcare Professionals will bring together leading international experts on treatment for lipoedema and explore the challenges of providing surgical treatments for lipoedema and evaluating the results.


  • Many patients with Lipoedema are desperate to find ways to prevent the condition advancing, as in the later stages it can have a severe impact on their mobility and quality of life.
  • Even in the early stages Lipoedema can have a devastatingly detrimental affect on a young woman’s self-esteem and self-confidence. 
  • So far, most CCG bodies have refused to fund liposuction on the NHS, classifying it as a cosmetic procedure, but many patients find liposuction the only solution, with  many being forced to fund it themselves and travel abroad for treatment.
