Effects of Liposuction Surgery or Conventional Diet and Exercise on Visceral Fat Deposits

A study published last month in the New England Journal of Medicine lent support to the notion that visceral fat is more of a threat than fat under the skin.

Visceral Fat Reduction

Doctors found that liposuction, which removes only subcutaneous fat, had no effect whatsoever on health, even when surgeons sucked out 20 pounds of subcutaneous abdominal fat. But a person who lost that much weight through dieting and exercise would almost certainly see significant changes in blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin resistance.

Fat Cells Remain After Liposuction

Besides leaving visceral fat untouched, liposuction may fail to improve health for another reason, said the first author of the study, Dr. Samuel Klein, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the School of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis. He said that while liposuction removes billions of fat cells it does not shrink the many more it left behind. Obese people have huge fat cells, with 50 percent to 75 percent more mass than fat cells in lean people, Dr. Klein said. Large fat cells are not a good thing to have because research has found that they are more active metabolically than small ones, and more likely to churn out harmful substances.

Best Way to Reduce Visceral (Intra-Abdominal) Fat

The best way to get rid of visceral fat and shrink fat cells all at once is diet and exercise. Even a small amount of weight loss, about 7 percent of total body weight, helps. Researchers do not fully understand why, but there is something about burning more calories than you eat, creating a state of negative energy balance, that quickly begins melting away the mass of visceral fat and slimming down bloated fat cells. Indeed, most dieters find that belly fat comes off first and that weight in the hips and thighs is much harder to lose. Unfortunately, diet and exercise have high failure rates. Even those who do manage to lose weight often regain it.

Laparoscopic or open bariatric surgery, such as gastric banding or bypass is not an easy solution to morbid obesity and weight loss. It is a serious surgical procedure, involving health risks. To produce lasting weight loss it requires a long-term patient commitment to eating a healthy diet and following a regular program of physical exercise. Life-long use of nutritional supplements may also be necessary. So, before deciding, discuss your options fully with your doctor. © 2003-2017 Bariatric-Surgery.Info - Terms - Contact - Information - Resources
