For some of us who may not know what liposuction is, it is a new generation surgery used to remove fats from parts of the body, by sucking the fats out with surgical instruments.
In the procedure, the surgeons makes a small incision on the part of the body where the unwanted fat removed is, then they insert suction instruments into the body through this incision and right before your eyes, the fat that is making you self-conscious disappears without much ado.
The result is quite dramatic and almost painless, and that is why a lot of people go in for liposuction. In a matter of hours, you can remove pounds and pounds of fat; this makes you look good and feel good. Or doesn’t it?
You may have what you asked for in the beginning, but after about twelve months, you will see you are storing fats in the most unlikely parts of your body. I bet you did not see that coming.
Why Does Fat Return to the Body?
The body produces fats used as energy, but when these fats are not used, the body stores them in fat cells.
After liposuction, not only is the excess fat removed but the fat cells that store these fats are also removed. This procedure also stops new fat cells from being created in place of the destroyed cells.
So, to store new fats, the body makes new fats cells in places that have not been disturbed by the liposuction. A study observed some women from Colorado, United States, who had once taken the surgery, they complained of fats in their waists, upper arms, shoulder and back.
The Director of Nutrition at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine, Dr. Samuel Klein says that liposuction destroys the structure that houses the fat cells in the skin.
Since the body stores unused fats, you can expect to see fat accumulate in the strangest part of your body.
More Reasons to avoid Liposuction.
The University of São Paulo published a report in July 2012 and made us understand that liposuction may pose more health risk than initially feared.
A research conducted in Colorado showed that liposuction increases the rate at which the body stores ‘Visceral’ fat.
Visceral fat is a form of fat which the body store on the vital organs within the body. Though it is not certain why this happens, but scientist assume that since liposuction does not let the body store fats in the proper places it should, the body compensates for this by storing fat on internal body organs close to the site of liposuction. This can lead to real health complications.
So How Do We Save Ourselves from Fats?
The only escape route from complications caused by visceral fat is exercise. If you exercise well, visceral fats will not store up in your body.
Moreover, a New York research body observed that most people who take the liposuction surgery do not exercise at all; they basically depend on the surgery to help them keep fats away. If they increase their body exercise rate, they have a very big chance of freedom from complication caused by liposuction and visceral fats.
After all of this, do you think that liposuction is really worth it? Like I always say, nothing like the natural approach to seeking health; and exercise is one of the most important natural aid to good health. Exercise yourself properly and you wouldn’t have to bother yourself with liposuction, fats or complications that may arise from the both of them. Stay healthy.
