Does Liposuction in Princeton Come with Legitimate Health Benefits?
Generally speaking, any mention of liposuction in Princeton brings to mind one thing: a better looking body with less fat. Of course, this is why most patients go in, but doctors continue to caution patients about what they can expect going in.
Liposuction is not a magical way to lose weight, nor is it a treatment for coronary heart disease or type 2 diabetes. For years, doctors and experts have been repeating themselves and trying to educate consumers about the myths surrounding liposuction.
However, the idea that liposuction has no health benefits at all may actually be one of those myths.
Liposuction in Princeton Might Reduce the Fat Floating Around in Your Bloodstream
A new study has recently been presented to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Denver in which researchers measured the triglyceride levels of 229 people before and after liposuction. Those who had normal triglyceride levels (the ideal patient) saw no changes. However, patients who had high triglyceride levels before Princeton liposuction saw a drop in a blood test taken 3 months later. More specifically, they saw a 43% reduction in triglycerides.
This was not likely to be a coincidence. When people take cholesterol-lowering drugs, they typically see about half that reduction in triglyceride levels. Patients also did not see any other changes in other measurements of cholesterol or glucose levels.
In addition, study author Dr. Eric Swanson found that white blood cell count fell by 11% after liposuction. White blood cells can be healthy, but they also cause inflammation, which puts patients at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.
Princeton Liposuction Seems to Follow the Same Rules as Any Other Treatment Plan
Just like many other diets, medications, and treatment plans for high cholesterol, Princeton liposuction seems to have little to no effect on those who are already healthy. However, for those who do have high triglyceride levels, it may trigger something that will help patients to achieve healthier results.
Some speculate that the positive results are at least partly due to changes in diet and exercise. A smart surgeon will alway counsel patients on ways to maintain results, all of which are centered around a patient’s lifestyle choices. However, the results are too consistent and too significant to be attributed solely to diet and exercise.
Subcutaneous Fat May Have a Larger Impact on Your Health Than Experts Once Thought
For years, experts have believed that the visceral fat that surrounds your vital organs is harmful while the visceral fat you may still find in your belly is not consequential to your health. Doctors have never discovered a way to use liposuction to remove visceral fat. But yet, we see this distinct improvement in triglycerides for some patients following liposuction.
The belly is easily one of the most popular areas targeted with liposuction in Princeton. Judging by these early results, subcutaneous fat may be far more consequential than we have been taught to believe. This study currently provides more support for other studies that indicate that subcutaneous fat may be just as metabolically consequential to your health.
Could Princeton Liposuction Eventually Fight Heart Disease?
It would be great if liposuction in Princeton could be used to strategically fight heart disease, but that is not likely to happen. Doctors have not yet developed a way to effectively target visceral fat, and more importantly we are limited by your body to removing only a small amount of fat at any given time.
So especially for patients who are overweight or obese, we cannot necessarily remove enough fat to address serious problems. In addition, the only measure that seems to improve is triglyceride levels.
Liposuction was never meant to be a substitute for diet and exercise, and that means that it will not substitute for a lack of proper care for your heart either. Liposuction will never be a treatment for heart disease, and patients will have to make certain lifestyle choices if they want to maintain the lower triglyceride levels and fat loss achieved with liposuction.
This study just suggests that if you have done the necessary work without being able to achieve the results you want due to a genetic predisposition, liposuction might provide a few unexpected surprises.
