Lipedema - updated 11.01.2020
If you would have told me in 2019 that I have Lipedema, I would have looked at you crazy! I never knew this disease existed; let alone imagined myself to be in the small percentage of women who do have it. For the past 25 years, I always believed to be overweight. I consistently told myself I was fat, obese, etc. because others perceived me to be that way. I was bullied from the middle of elementary school all the way towards college. The bullying had finally gone away in the year of 2015 when I moved back home from Boston, MA.
My name is Priscilla and I am a Lipedema Influencer. I am currently getting multiple surgeries for it! I found out that I had Lipedema back in September of 2019 and had my first surgery in October of 2019. I’ve currently had 6 surgeries total (5 of them done on the legs & 1 on the arms) and I should be having a couple more to finish it off by the year of 2021.
Lipedema is a fat tissue disorder that’s distributed in an irregular way beneath your skin, usually in the buttocks, legs, arms and stomach. Although it begins as a cosmetic concern, it can eventually cause pain and other problems. Lipedema can be mistaken for regular obesity or lymphedema. Lipedema may affect up to 11% of women.
Being able to spread awareness about this disease is truly amazing! Not many know so being able to educate others on it gives me so much more joy and passion to life! Even when I’m done with my surgeries, I plan to continue being a voice and raising awareness towards this disease.
Book a free consultation if you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of lipedema! I trust Dr. Jaime Schwartz and his team is incredible.
Happiest place on Earth!
Alani protein bars are my favorite. The chocolate one is my all time favorite but they’re all amazing.
I travel to Boston, Massachusetts every year. It’s my top travel destination and such an amazing place to sight see.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Another TOP destination spot that I visit with family and friends every year! Getting away and enjoying that night life is truly something.
