What is lymphoedema and how is it treated?

Lymphoedema is a condition characterised by the swelling of the limbs caused by fluid retention. Fluid retention occurs in patients with this condition because their lymphatic system is unable to properly drain the lymph fluid. In many cases, it is the legs, arms and fingers that become swollen. It can be a difficult condition to live with, as it can cause discomfort, pain and difficulty moving. Mr Damir Kosutic, a top plastic surgeon, details the treatments available for lymphoedema, which include surgery, liposuction, and combining it with breast reconstruction surgery.
