Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction with Josef Stutz, MD
Dr. Stutz discusses WAL liposuction (water-jet assisted liposuction), which he helped develop specifically for treating lipedema, and how it improves on the traditional tumescent local anesthesia (TLA) procedure. This treatment results in lipedema patients being almost entirely pain-free after surgery. He also discusses the emotional pain that can accompany lipedema, and the importance of the medical community recognizing this and caring for lipedema patients on every level. Dr. Josef Stutz is one of the foremost lipedema surgeons in Germany, and pioneer of the WAL liposuction treatment for lipedema.
Difficulty creates the opportunity for self-reflection and compassion.
