Like many cosmetic procedures, liposuction is a tool that can boost your beauty arsenal. Some people aren’t exactly certain of how liposuction should be used, though. You’ve probably heard many exaggerations or outright falsehoods over the years about what it can do to help shape and refine the human body.
The first thing you need to understand about liposuction is that it isn’t intended to remove large amounts of fat. It was never a replacement for weight loss. The larger the amount of body fat you have removed through liposuction, the greater the risks are.
This knowledge should not diminish the many benefits liposculpture has to offer. In fact, there are a few surprising benefits for those who decide to have liposculpture in Yonkers, NY and beyond, including these below.
Improves Heart Health
ABC News reports that a 2010 study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons determined that patients who had elevated levels of triglycerides before going through with their liposuction treatments showed significant reductions (43 percent) in triglyceride levels after surgery.
Treats other Medical Conditions
The benefits do not end with heart health. According to Medical News Today, liposculpture is also used to treat benign fatty tumors, called lipomas. It is additionally used to treat lipodystrophy syndrome, a condition that causes the body to store too much fat in some areas and not enough in other and gynecomastia – a condition in which men develop fatty breast tissue. In each of these cases the use of liposuction is still aesthetic, but it also helps to substantially improve confidence and mental health.
