Losing belly fat is not as simple as just exercising or getting a liposuction procedure. There are types of fat that cannot be removed with liposuction as fat composition is extremely complex and intricate. Within your various fat deposits there are different types of fat in the body that are treated differently when it comes to fat loss. Subcutaneous is probably the most common type of fat that is found just beneath the skin. This fat is the fat that feels ‘flabby’, and if you squeeze it, it should be somewhat moveable. This jelly-like fat is actually a lot better for you than its counterpart which is visceral fat. Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney utilises the liposuction procedure to remove subcutaneous fat from the body and enhance your slender physique.
Visceral fat is fat that encases and laces the organs. This fat is dangerous as it has been attributed as cause for type 2 diabetes, thus increasing risk of heart disease. Visceral fat is virtually impossible to remove with liposuction as it can only be removed with diet and exercise. This doesn’t mean that subcutaneous fat is harmless or benign, it is still potentially harmful to health as fat and obesity is commonly associated with high blood pressure and other complex conditions.
Liposuction is used to remove subcutaneous fat from the body in a variety of different areas. Liposuction can be used to remove flabby fat from areas of the body that are commonly affected. For women areas that are commonly affected by the presence of subcutaneous fats (due to fat deposits) include the thighs, buttocks and abdomen. Another common area of self-consciousness is the arms which can be difficult to cover, especially in the Australian summer. If you suffer from fat deposits on your arms Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney should be able to help make your arm appear more slender and toned through liposuction.
One of the most common misconceptions is that liposuction can solve obesity. It’s important that the liposuction procedure is only performed on individuals who are at near-peak physical condition. In order to determine this one of our doctors will consult with you about your medical history and current condition during your initial consultation.
