3 Reasons for Liposuction
By Leslie Howard Stevens – Follow me on Google+
Here are three great reasons to have liposuction based on recent findings:
- Studies show that liposuction may lower your risk for heart disease – According to a report presented at a recent annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Denver, patients’ triglyceride levels had dropped an average of 43% within three months of having the slenderizing procedure. Triglycerides, fats in the blood, have been linked in other studies to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
- Liposuction can be used to treat lipomas (benign fatty tumors).
- For patients with problems with metabolism of fat in the body (lipodystrophy), liposuction is often a great solution.
Liposuction is only done in small areas of the body, and is not a treatment for obesity or long-term weight loss. It should not be used if the potential patient wants to get rid of stretch marks, cellulite, or other skin surface irregularities. Discuss your options with a certified plastic surgeon before booking your appointment. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Stevens, contact him here.
