The April Lipedema Patient Roundtable was jam-packed with information and inspiration as each anchor panelist shared their biggest takeaway from the recent Fat Disorders Resource Society (FDRS) Conference. Special guest Dr. Omar Beidas from Advent Health shared insights about lipedema surgery and answered questions about chronic venous insufficiency, BMI, and other factors when considering surgery. His local Lympha Press Compression Therapy Consultant, Rich Bradley, talked about the important relationship between reps and doctors, as well as lymphedema and other therapists. Both shared success stories and their commitment to helping lipedema patients.
In response to questions from the audience, tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) expert Lauren Fonvielle from Mindshift with Lauren talked about this technique for pain and mindset management and led the group through a tapping exercise.
Correction to the video: Dr. Beidas is with Advent Health, not First Access Plastic Surgery; www.firstaccessplasticsurgery.com is the website to register.
