The Health Benefits of Liposuction

The Health Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a known and trusted surgical procedure that is mostly recognized for its cosmetic applications. And although it’s not common knowledge, this fact remains true: Liposuction provides a host of positive health advantages to patients.

There are many benefits to decreasing your body’s ratio of fat. The immediate and permanent removal of fat cells through liposuction can also impart some of these benefits as well. This article will cover 4 important health benefits to lowered body fat as well as three additional improvements you can expect when Liposuction is combined with a minor or full abdominal surgery (aka abdominoplasty). Let’s dive in…

Health Benefit #1: Improved Overall Health. Obesity is linked to many serious diseases and health concerns, so once you lose the weight your body will experience the benefits. The desire to reduce body fat and become healthy is a journey. For some people, no matter how much they lose and how hard they work, there are pockets of fat that remain. For patients seeking a body transformation, weight loss, exercise, and healthy eating are the first steps. Weight loss can be linked to lowered risk of cardiovascular disease, reduced inflammation in the body and improved mood and self esteem. Liposuction is a great way to target those areas that dieting and exercise cannot affect. Liposuction can help your body and mind feel great.

Health Benefit #2: Increased Mobility. The pockets of fat that would be targeted by liposuction may have previously limited a patient’s mobility. In addition to a positive effect on joints, patients may experience enhanced mobility after choosing liposuction. Increased mobility is connected to a more active lifestyle and the health benefits of moving freely are numerous.

Health Benefit #3: Lowered Blood Fat Levels. There have been studies linking liposuction to a reduction of triglycerides in patients with high blood fat levels pre-surgery. Lowering your triglycerides improves your heart health.

Health Benefit #4: Feeling Good. For many people, the struggle to lose weight and keep it off has been a battle spanning many years, even decades. The challenge of always chasing weight loss and never achieving your desired results can take a toll on the way you feel about yourself. Feeling good about the way your body looks can encourage you to adopt healthier habits, work out a little longer, enter social situations with confidence. Do not underestimate the power of improved self-esteem and confidence to enhance your quality of life

Bonus Health Benefits of Liposuction and Abdominoplasty. Although abdominal surgery is not the same surgical technique as Liposuction, some patients choose to undergo both procedures together. Besides the obvious benefit of requiring only one anaesthetic and recovery, combining these two sculpting procedures can provide these additional benefits:

  1. Muscle restoration in the abdomen after pregnancy and weight gain/loss
  2. Smooth and toned appearance throughout the midsection
  3. Removal of excess skin flaps that can cause rashes and infections
