my weight to get it off. It never worked. I got, since I was a child, always blue marks on
my legs, not knowing where they came from. If that’s true for you and you have thick
legs, go to a doctor. I went to a dermatologist and he told me I [have] lipedema.
DR. SCHIFT: They don’t treat points for treating lipedema patients. There’s the
aesthetic problem. Patients want to have an aesthetic good result. This is one thing.
Second thing is you have to remove a lot of volume. This is what I developed during

to remove two liters. You can remove lots of volumes and you can remove quickly
afterwards also lots of volumes, say about three weeks in between, but on a different

different area. You can do, for instance, five liters on the hips, and then three weeks
later, you take three liters from the lower legs. It’s a different area.
