II International Lipedema Symposium
1st October 2022 – AXA Auditorium – Barcelona (Spain)
Dra. Ana M. Torres Maczassek
Welcome to the second Spanish symposium on lipedema that will take place on October 1st 2022 at the AXA Auditorium in the city of Barcelona.
Lipedema is a little known disorder of the distribution of fatty tissue, which almost exclusively affects women, and mainly involves the lower extremities. Lipedema is a disease that must be approached in a multidisciplinary way, since there are many professionals in the field of medicine who must participate: from the general practitioner, who needs to have the right knowledge of what is a lipedema to be able to prevent the development of this disease in its highest degrees and stages, passing through the vascular surgeon who will make the diagnosis and rule out a concomitant venous pathology, not forgetting the plastic surgeon who wants to help achieve a good result that reduces their clinical pain and heaviness they have been dragging for years. Likewise to physiotherapists who will take care of the patient’s postoperative period and are as important as everything else.
In this Symposium we will have the presence of great professionals in the field of diagnosis, treatment and all those areas that impact on Lipedema, such as: nutrition, physiotherapy, liposuction and postoperative.
I hope you like the program we have made thanks to the Upviser and Humanmed (body-jet®) companies, the main sponsors of this Symposium.
Following the inclusion of this disease in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD 11) by the World Health Organization (WHO) in May 2018, we want this meeting to be a forum for debate and knowledge for those professionals dedicated to the treatment of Lipedema.
