Ioana Chira suffers from a special medical condition — lipedema. This is a chronic disease in which the hips and buttocks of women increase to an extraordinary size, but at the same time fat deposits are not associated with obesity. Ioane was offered a radical treatment in order to bring the forms to the standard.
The famous British surgeon David Amron is ready to do the operation for free, but the girl doubts whether to accept his offer. She says that now she already feels comfortable, having survived many years of ridicule over fullness.
28-year-old Ioana suffered from complexes all her life. It took her a long time to accept and love herself for who she is. The girl is grateful to Dr. Amron for the offer, but doubts whether she is ready to go under the surgeon's knife. But at the same time, she wants to tell the world that lipedema is being treated so that other women with such a problem get hope for recovery.
Lipedema is a chronic disease in which an abnormal amount of fat cells accumulates on the legs, thighs, buttocks, and sometimes on the hands. The disease is of genetic origin and almost never occurs in men. With lipedema, there are pains, swelling, bumps on the skin and cellulite.
At the fourth stage of lipedema, patients may even find themselves in a wheelchair due to the inability to move independently. In the world, about 370 million people suffer from this condition, and in One in nine women in Britain. Doctors often misdiagnose patients, mistaking lipedema for obesity or lymphedema.
For the first time, Iona noticed that her legs had increased in size as a teenager, when she lived in Romania. The girl was mocked at school, and she had to hide her wide calves and hips under dark clothes.
In 2014, she moved to London and started working in the financial sector. Jonah trained hard in the gym and posted photos of her body transformation on the Internet to inspire herself and other women. Despite the fact that her stomach had shrunk and her abs had become firm, her legs and buttocks remained disproportionately large.
Over time, the girl gained popularity in social networks — more than a million users subscribed to her Instagram page, and she became an influencer.
Jonah says some people thought she'd had plastic surgery. She often had to convince them. The girl was always sure that she was suffering from excess weight, because her relatives on her father's side are mostly quite large. When she accidentally found out about lipedema and read about it on the Internet, she realized that this was her problem.The first doctor to whom Iona turned could not make a diagnosis and referred her to specialists at St. George's Hospital in Los Angeles. There her guesses were confirmed. It was hard for the girl to accept that she would remain like this forever, since lipedema is a chronic condition of the body.
Surgeon David Amron, who practices at St. George's Hospital, has developed the latest method of liposuction and body contouring, in which it is possible to correct most cases of lipedema and radically reduce weight. He read Jonah's story in The Sun Online newspaper and immediately offered to help her.
The girl went to Los Angeles last October and they discussed treatment. A doctor from Beverly Hills claims that after applying his method, lipedema rarely returns if patients continue to lead a healthy lifestyle.
On Dr. Amron's website there are many photos of women who have been radically transformed with his help. Treatment costs a lot: from 3,000 to 16,000 pounds (from 247,000 to 1.3 million rubles), depending on the stage of lipedema.
Jonah is already in the third stage of the disease. The doctor advises surgery because there is a high risk that the disease will progress. He says that after surgery, 98% of patients have abnormal fat deposits that do not return if they eat right and lead an active lifestyle.
The girl continues to train 5-6 times a week and sits on a strict diet, and thanks to this, the pain does not bother her. She is considering whether to go under the surgeon's knife, because this is a very serious decision. After the operation, she will have to change her lifestyle and for some time she will be forced to stop training. In addition, there will be extra skin, with which you will also need to do something.The most important thing for Jonah is to be happy in her body and not think that it is necessary to be skinny. But at the same time, the girl wants to share with other women information about the treatment of lipedema so that they know where to look for help.
