Liposuction May Reduce Triglycerides

Did you see this latest news from The Los Angeles Times posted today? The “Booster Shots” blog reports that liposuction “may…reduce harmful fat circulating in the blood,” according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Investigators measured “triglyceride levels in” nearly 230 individuals undergoing the procedure. The researchers found that “in people with normal triglyceride levels, cosmetic surgery made no difference.” However, “among people who started out with high triglycerides, blood tests taken three months after surgery showed a 43% reduction in triglycerides.”

There’s another post from HealthDay as well that reports, “Levels of white blood cells also dipped after liposuction and in patients who had both procedures.” However, “levels of cholesterol and blood sugar didn’t change significantly.”

Triglycerides are a type of lipid found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly “easy” calories like carbohydrates and fats, you may have high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia). Having a high level of triglycerides, a type of fat (lipid) in your blood, can increase your risk of heart disease.

I’ve you have questions about how Liposuction and Liposculpture can help you, please call us at the Scripps Ranch Dermatology and Cosmetic Center or the Dr. Tess Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in La Jolla.
