The challenges of providing effective treatment for patients with lymphoedema-related disorders have never been more prominent. Conservative management of lymphoedema remains of central importance, however, there is increasing evidence that other therapies, such as surgical approaches, may have an important part to play in the arena of treatment. 

The findings from these proceedings highlight the potential role that surgical approaches, including liposuction, can have in transforming the lives of patients. Conservative approaches, while effective in many patients, do not provide a solution for some of the complex issues patients face, nor do they always provide sustained results even after periods of expensive, intensive treatment.
