Components of blood fat levels are reduced after undergoing liposuction aretriglycerides, which are widely associated with the risk of heart disease. Within 3 months after liposuction, triglyceride levels decreased significantly the average of 43percent.
“It makes sense if there is some fat is removed, the triglycerides will go down. But wedid not expect to be reduced so much,” said Dr. Eric Swanson, a plastic surgeon from Kansas, as quoted by MSNBC.
Decrease in triglyceride levels is so great an impact on heart health and blood vessels.Dr. Swanson said this reduction will reduce the risk of blockages in blood vessels, so the risk of stroke and heart attack will also be reduced.
In his presentation in the arena of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr.Swanson said he was surprised by the results of this study. Especially in the observation of 322 patients undergoing liposuction in the abdomen, 78 percent had normal weight tooverweight and only 22 percent are obese.
Typically, only liposuction will give a significant effect if done in people who have a body mass index categorized obesity. Therefore, if it could make an impact on people withnormal weight, then it is considered shocking.
In addition to lowering levels of triglycerides, liposuction also decrease the number ofcirculating white blood cells in blood vessels. This means that liposuction also reduceinflammation, which is one risk factor for heart problems.
