Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that has long been used to remove stubborn, unwanted fat from areas. The procedure can help target various areas, such as the abdomen, neck, arms, back, and thighs.
Commonly, liposuction is thought to be a procedure done for cosmetic benefits. While liposuction does help many individuals reach aesthetic goals, such as contouring the body and slimming the areas that are performed upon, the procedure can have many more benefits.
Help You Move More
Excess fat in areas of the body can affect physical movement, not only discouraging you but making activities such as exercise more difficult.
Though liposuction helps permanently remove the fat cells in target areas such as the abdomen, the procedure by itself is not a weight loss tool. In fact, good candidates for
liposuction are already near their target weight. The process of getting liposuction ready will generally see individuals adopt healthier habits, from diet to physical activity.
Getting ready for liposuction and the procedure itself can help you engage in a healthier, more active lifestyle by making moving around easier. Making a more active lifestyle easier and more enjoyable can help you maintain it for the long term.
Potential Improvements To Overall Health
While liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, deposits of fat increase the metabolic symptoms of obesity. Removing fat deposits may theoretically improve the metabolic risk factors associated with abdominal obesity, such as risks of cardiovascular events, decreased immune system activity, and more.
A study looking at individuals after liposuction found improvements with reduced levels of harmful triglycerides and white blood cells. The presence of white blood cells can be an indication of inflammation in the body. A reduction in white blood cells is generally seen as beneficial.
While liposuction is typically a cosmetic procedure only, there is a chance of experiencing health benefits both from the procedure and from the habits and lifestyle changes needed to get liposuction ready. To know if you may benefit, speak with a trusted and capable surgeon.
