Study: Liposuction May Lower Heart Disease Risk, Liposuction can have more than just cosmetic benefits, a new study has found that the procedure could improve cholesterol levels of the individual test. The results suggest that the procedure may have some value for patients who have dangerously high cholesterol levels.
For the study, researchers measured cholesterol levels of more than 300 patients who were about to undergo liposuction procedures. They found that triglyceride levels decreased after the procedure by 43 percent among those with unhealthy cholesterol.
“These findings suggest that patients who are considering liposuction at risk triglyceride levels can reduce their risk of developing these serious health problems, while correcting the imbalances of the body,” said Dr. Eric Swanson, who led the research. “Patients do not only look better, but it can be healthier too.”
He said the findings make sense, as high levels of visceral fat, the kind that accumulates in the abdomen and is removed by liposuction, has been linked to heart disease risk.
High triglyceride levels may be an important health problem. They have been associated with an increased risk of suffering a cardiovascular event like heart attack or stroke.
