A Positive Future with WAL Lymph Sparing Liposuction with Cassandra Scott
Lipedema patient Cassandra describes struggling with fat disorder lipedema since age twelve. Despite strict diet and exercise, it was difficult for her to lose weight. Cassandra started to have intense leg pain and pain in her hips, knees and ankles. A physician diagnosed her with lipolymphedema, and told her that she’d need compression and lymph drainage for the rest of her life. Discouraged by this prognosis, Cassandra researched online and found a great support system through the Facebook lipedema community. Empowered by the community, she had lymph sparing liposuction with Dr. Josef Stutz in Germany in 2014, and is now living pain free. Cassandra Scott is thirty-one years old and lives with her family in Kansas. She recently graduated from cosmetology school to follow her dream of being creative and mastering the world of hair color and style.
