Liposuction can do more than get rid of excess body fat and give you a slimmer figure. One woman named Jasna Tursic suffered for 12 years with a disease that caused her to have an overgrowth of fat that disproportionately affected her legs and caused pain.
When Jasna was initially diagnosed with lipedema, she learned from doctors that the best treatment was cosmetic liposuction. Lipedema is commonly found in women, and causes legs to take on the appearance of a tree.
Jasna underwent the procedure, and since then, her life has improved markedly. Jasna went from being someone doctors told would end up in a wheelchair due to the loss of mobility brought on by the pain in her legs, to someone who was up on her feet one day after liposuction.
“[The surgery] changed my life so much,” said Jasna.
