Compression Leggings for Lipedema
Wearing of lipedema compression leggings is one of the suggested treatments for individuals suffering from lipedema. It is a chronic disorder that affects the adipose tissue.
Lipedema is characterized by enlargement of the lower extremities from the ankles up to the hips. Since it usually doesn’t affect the feet, it creates a ‘band-like’ appearance. The degree of enlargement varies from person to person but it usually worsens over time.
The exact cause of lipedema is unknown although it’s seen to be more common in women than in men. It is believed that genes play a significant role in the development of lipedema.
There are surgical and non-surgical methods for treating lipedema. Tumescent liposuction is the only surgical treatment that can help reduce the build up of fatty tissue. For non-surgical methods, it can be through compression therapy, exercise, and massage.
