Liposuction (a literature review)

In dercum’s disease, Hansson et al. suggested liposuction may alleviate pain; however, it was difficult to determine whether this was due to the actual surgery or to other factors, according to EL-Khatib. De Silva and Earley used liposuction in two dercum’s patients and recommended the treatment as it had a low morbidity and was well-tolerated in elderly patients.

Treatment of this condition is usually targeted on pain relief rather than lipoma removal. El-Khatib reported a lack of scientific data for treatment or prevention of dercum’s disease.
