- Today I’d like to tell you about a study by Dr. Ahmet Karacalar, a plastic surgeon in Turkey who performs liposuction on patients with lipedema.

- He wrote this book during the lockdowns in 2020 and was published in May 2023.

- The title of his book is Lipoedema: An Evolutionary Mismatch.

- He presents archaeological evidence that lipedema is an “evolutionary mismatch” that dates back to the agricultural revolution.

- He then goes on to share with readers how a modern adaptation of the hunter-gatherer lifestyle may be the best treatment option for lipoedema.
