Liposuction for Lipoedema (a chronic adipose tissue disorder) has become an increasingly popular treatment choice for sufferers; where conservative methods have not been effective. Ladies are finding that the procedure does improve symptoms and enhance the quality of their lives, but it is important to keep in mind that Consultants state this is not a cure for the condition. PhysioPod now have a small amount of Deep Oscillation Personal Units available to help with the post operative recovery period. The following is a short feedback of one lady who has used for one calendar month plus the experiences of others who have undergone the same procedures and their recovery with Deep Oscillation.

Further Feedback of Lipoedema Liposuction Recovery


Elaine's First Surgery 

"I hired the DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal AESTHETICS unit for 6 weeks to use before my initial liposuction procedure for Lipoedema carried out by Professor Alex Munnoch at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.

I used it most days for the two weeks before my surgery and for three weeks after I came out of hospital.  I feel that the unit helped to soften the abnormal fat in my legs thus making it easier to get the most out of my leg.  Seven litres of fat was extracted.  Five weeks on from the surgery my leg is now down 33%, with some swelling to my knee and ankle still to go.  I am delighted with my results and will be hiring the unit again for my other leg later in the Summer. Many thanks to Mary and Julie for their with everything.  


Elaine's Second Surgery 


PhysioPod asked - how are you doing?

"I'm doing great, thank you, following my second liposuction procedure (on the other leg) it is 23% down and bruising is almost gone after just 3.5 weeks of using Deep Oscillation. The first leg is 36% down now. I am so pleased and glad I used the DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal AESTHETICS again.  One lady had her operation 2 weeks before me and her bruising is still quite bad and she takes arnica. Thank you so much. Happily, no more surgery is needed"

Has the liposuction reduced the Lipoedema pain? 

Definitely, I have no pain in my legs now and no stiffness; I no longer need to consider giving up work!

How soon after liposuction did you use Deep Oscillation this time?

I used it on the day of surgery, then from a week after.

Are you pleased with the result?

I am so pleased, Alex Munnoch is amazing, he has given me my life back and I am already back to walking up to 4000 steps a day with no pain, I could only manage about 5k/6k last year and that was painful.

More and more Lipoedema sufferers are choosing to have Liposuction to reduce the symptoms of Lipoedema; reducing volume and pain and improving range of movement and mobility.


What is Lipoedema (also known as Lipedema in the U.S.)

Lipoedema (NOT Lymphoedema) is a chronic, hereditary and genetic disorder of the adipose tissue (or body fat) which can be both disfiguring and painful. It predominantly affects women (although men can also suffer) from the age of puberty and beyond. Sufferers may have a normal slim (upper) body shape but a much larger disproportionate lower body below the waist regardless of changes made to diet or exercise regime and in some cases, upper arms are effected too. As Lipoedema progresses, additional, expanding fat cells interfere with the pathways of lymphatic vessels and sufferers can develop secondary Lymphoedema and it then becomes known as Lipo-Lymphoedema. The effects of Lipoedema on the patient can also cause great psychological distress for the sufferer. It is very important for people with lipoedema to eat a healthy diet and follow a programme of low impact exercises such as swimming, walking or cycling.


Deep Oscillation is a patented therapy which is delivered via massage from therapist to patient or applicators as self management. A therapeutically beneficial electrostatic field is created in the tissue segment undergoing treatment. As the vinyl gloved hands or applicators glide over the tissue, the tissue layers are attracted and released up to 250 per second (250 Hz).

Deep Oscillation permeates a clinically proven depth of 8cm. No pressure is required to achieve effects making it also an ideal non-invasive, conservative treatment for Lipoedema. It is gentle, relaxing and pleasant. Pain is significantly reduced, inflammation suppressed, the oedema element of lipoedema is reduced, bruising resorbs. Where present, fibrosis is tackled effectively, limbs feel lighter and mobility is enhanced.

How does Deep Oscillation help Lipoedema patients (pre and post op)


Since Deep Oscillation possesses anti-oedema, lymph drainage, anti-fibrosis and detoxifying properties, it prepares the tissue for liposuction, makes liposuction more effective and durable and protects against adverse effects of the body sculpting procedure.

Post Operatively

Because it can be used at a very early post-operative stage, the healing process is accelerated, reduced pain, bruising and swelling, scar quality is improved, and local inflammation is inhibited and stopped over a sustained period.

What are the clinical effects of DEEP OSCILLATION®?

  • Strong pain-alleviating potential. This applies to acute traumatic as well as to chronic pain conditions
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Prevention and reduction of secondary and primary lymphoedema, as well as reduction of oedema in lipoedema
  • Prevention of fibrotic remodelling processes, reduction of fibrosis
  • Muscle relaxation, mobilisation, functional improvement and improved ROM
  • Support of wound healing processes
