Liposuction and obesity

Liposuction and obesityLiposuction is a surgical procedure that is used to remove excess fat in the body. Although it can help contour the body, not all types of fat can be removed. The excess fat deposits that are located in the stomach, hips, and thighs are mostly targeted. This type of fat is called subcutaneous fat.

Subcutaneous fat is found underneath the skin. You can pinch the fat to have a better idea of what is targeted during the procedure. Whatever stubborn subcutaneous fat can’t be removed by diet and exercise, liposuction can.

On the other hand, fat that is found surrounding internal organs is called visceral fat. Those who suffer from obesity have an abundance of visceral fat, which makes them more prone to heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other medical condition.

Liposuction is generally not recommended for patients who are obese. Diet, exercise, and certain prescribed medications are first advised to eliminate excess fat before the patient can be cleared to undergo the procedure. Apart from liposuction, other procedures such as bariatric surgery are also recommended for patients who have a body mass index of 30 and above.

Liposuction is not a treatment procedure that can correct obesity. It helps change the contour and shape of the body, but it cannot be a substitute for weight loss. Proper diet and exercise is still vital to maintain a healthy body, especially in eliminating the visceral fat that is not seen by the naked eye.

Liposuction should be seen as more of an aid than a solution. Healthy eating and exercise will remain the best methods to remove fat, but liposuction can help accentuate the body to make it look better. Weight loss can be challenging to overcome, but with determination, proper help from health experts, and the support of loved ones, obesity can be conquered. Surgery isn’t always the answer, but it can help improve your appearance.
