Dr. Beth Collins is one of the few plastic surgeons in New England who offers treatment for lipedema, a common, chronic disease that causes a buildup of fat and connective tissue in the legs and arms. Often associated with pain and unwanted fat, lipedema is not well understood, so it can be difficult to find treatment.
Why Choose Dr. Collins for Lipedema Treatment
Dr. Collins has years of experience as a body contouring specialist, focusing on liposuction, including large volume liposuction, to remove unwanted fat from the body. This fat removal can help relieve some pain symptoms associated with lipedema as well as de-bulk the fatty tissue in the affected area.
