The two categories of surgical intervention that are currently available
lymphatic reconstruction and excisional surgeries
Lymph node transplant is surgery in which lymph nodes are moved from one part of the body (usually the abdomen) to the lymphedema
affected area. The transplanted lymph node theoretically stimulates the growth of new lymph channels into and out of the transplanted node.
Anastamotic reconstruction attempts to restore lymph flow through a surgical re-joining of the damaged lymph channel either to another lymphatic vessel
or to a vein.
Debulking is surgery that involves the surgical removal of excess tissue that hangs in folds.
is an excisional operation during which a tube is inserted under the skin. Through this tube a high-pressure vacuum is applied break up and "suck out" excess fat cells. This procedure often leaves excess skin hanging loose.
