Dr. Wright Featured in Local News Story About Lipedema

It can be a difficult journey searching for the answers for why symptoms of lipedema are occurring. Many physicians’ offices continue to refuse diagnosing lipedema, stating that the condition is just obesity and that diet and exercise can make it go away. This is an all too common story that occurs across the country every day. Fortunately, the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center is available for your diagnosis and multiple treatment options. NBC 5 recently ran a story about our very own Dr. Wright and his interactions with a current patient. Mindy, like many others, sought out the expert advice of Dr. Wright and is currently changing her life for the better.

What is Lipedema?

Lipedema is a subcutaneous fat disorder and impacts around 1-10% of all women. Losing this fat tissue is extremely difficult and requires more than just a new diet and exercise regime. Lipedema also happens to occur after puberty, similar to how Mindy experienced her first onset. Mindy began receiving treatment from the Laser Lipo & Vein Center in May but believes she has been experiencing lipedema since she was just 13 years old. Living with lipedema this long without an answer or treatment can be extremely difficult for anyone to deal with.

What Treatment Looks Like

Mindy has been on of Dr. Wright’s most hard-working patients and has lost 20 pounds since her diagnosis. She knew she was experiencing more than just obesity when her legs would ache all the time. Through Mindy’s hard work and the expert techniques at the Laser Lipo & Vein Center, she will be able to continue losing weight and achieving a healthier lifestyle.
