Liposuction does more than just sucking fat. It improves your health, too, in certain ways.
We’re all familiar with the term liposuction, but how many of us actually understand what it’s all about?
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that literally means sucking (suction) fat (lipo), and it targets excess fat tissues resistant to dieting and exercise. It can reduce the number of fat cells in the isolated area and even treat a range of conditions such as lymphedema, gynecomastia, lipodystrophy syndrome and lipomas.
This procedure is not a weight loss tool, but it can reshape your figure by reducing fat in areas that wouldn’t budge no matter how hard you diet or exercise. These include the arms, waist, hips, stomach, butt and thighs.
How liposuction works
Modern liposuction technique uses tiny cannulas, which are small and thin tubes with blunted tips. This process requires only small incisions to be made. As a result, scarring is minimal and will improve with time. Small, blunt-tipped tube (cannula) is inserted through tiny skin incisions in the patient’s skin, and the cannula is being moved around under the skin to target certain fat deposits under the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned through the tubes.
VASER Lipo (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) is an improved form of liposuction that eliminates unwanted fat like traditional liposuction, except it does so in a gentler manner. By using patented ultrasonic sound wave energy to liquefy fat cells, VASER Lipo targets the areas with unwanted fat, leaving the surrounding connective tissues, blood vessels largely undisturbed. There is minimal disruption to your daily activities, apart from refraining from water activities until the stitches are removed. Post-procedure, you will gradually notice a more contoured and defined body in three to six months.
Health benefits of liposuction
More than just zapping away excess body fat, liposuction also improves your health in certain ways.
1. It reduces fat in the blood
A high level of fat in the blood (i.e. triglyceride level) can increase the risk of heart disease, so it’s crucial to always maintain a triglyceride level of less than 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Because liposuction suctions out fat stored in parts of the body, it helps to reduce total body fat as well as fat in the blood.
2. It lowers the risk of diabetes
Research partially funded by the National Institutes of Health has shown that liposuction may also reduce insulin resistance, which means it might benefit those in the earliest stages of diabetes and possibly even prevent diabetes from developing.
3. It reduces inflammation
Chronic inflammation can lead to several diseases and health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, certain cancers and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that six months post-liposuction, patients saw a significant reduction in inflammatory markers and a significant increase in anti-inflammatory markers.
Another study also suggested that liposuction can also reduce vascular inflammation in the patient, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
4. It increases metabolism
Adipose tissue is metabolically active tissue that stores energy in the form of fat. It also helps to cushion and insulate the body. According to a clinical paper published online at the US National Library of Medicine, the combination of liposuction and exercise is a safe and effective strategy for the treatment of metabolic disorders.
Liposuction can help to treat lipodystrophy syndrome, a condition of fat metabolism disturbance in which there is excessive fat in certain parts of the body, but none in others.

Genetics dictate the parts of our body where our circulation is at its weakest. Women for example, tend to have poor circulation around the stomach, hips, bottom and thighs. The body cannot metabolise fat efficiently in areas where circulation is poor. That’s why many people find it difficult to lose weight from those problem areas.
While VASER Liposuction reduces targeted body fat permanently, it cannot be treated as a weight loss solution. For long-term weight and body maintenance, you’ll need to take a holistic approach.
