I don't know the science or medical reason behind hit, but lymphoedema and I think especially if you have had cellulitis causes fatty tissue to congregate within the affected limb. My consultant has said that it is becoming common that when many surgeons (worldwide) perform lymph node transplants they will perform lyposuction as well to help reduce the size. There is a renowned consultant in Scotland (can't remember his name) who specialises in this treatment for lymphoedema sufferers.
I, too, have lymphedema in my right leg. I had to lose weight all over and joined WeightWatchers. I lost 40 pounds and my right leg also lost weight. It's still bigger than my left, but it also lost the body/fat weight. I hope that helps. And, yes, my hips, rear and stomach lost the weight, as well.
