Liposuction in Honolulu Can Benefit Your Health Randy Wong, MD on 14 Sep 2016


Dr. Wong provides cosmetic surgery and liposuction in Honolulu at Honolulu Plastic Surgery Center. Liposuction, the surgical procedure in which excess fatty tissue is removed from the body, has been a popular cosmetic surgery for some time now. However, recent studies show that in addition to enhancing appearance, liposuction may also provide health benefits to patients.

The location of the body where an individual carries the majority of their fatty tissue can be dangerous. Too much fatty tissue in certain areas, such as the abdomen and stomach regions, can be harmful to one’s overall heart health and can domino into more health problems in the future. Cardiovascular health is commonly affected by excess weight and fatty tissue in the body. Removing some of this fatty tissue through a liposuction procedure can help prevent future health problems correlated with excess fat in the body.

In addition, a study that measures triglycerides in the body found an interesting benefiting component to liposuction surgery. Researchers found that in participants who had a high baseline triglyceride level, liposuction surgery actually lowered their count by 43% as displayed in a 3 month post surgery follow-up assessment. Triglycerides make up most of the fatty parts of our bodies, so these results are noteworthy and health-promoting. Another researcher also found that white blood cell counts dropped by 11% after surgery. This was a significant finding because white blood cells have been linked to inflammation within the body and are correlated with cardiovascular disease. If removing some fatty tissue through liposuction can aid in decreasing swelling and bloating in the body, then there are likely implications for more health benefits as well.

Liposuction in Honolulu provides patients with both cosmetic and physical health benefits. Clients can walk away feeling better about their bodies from the inside out. In addition to liposuction, Dr. Wong can also do your tummy tuck in Honolulu and breast augmentation in Honolulu. Because both of these surgeries require some removal of fatty tissue, similar benefits may be seen in those with high triglyceride levels.

Additionally, women with large breasts may experience health problems, such as back and shoulder pain caused by the heavy weight of their breasts. This form of excess weight can put a lot of strain on the body, making it painful and difficult to simply walk around day to day. It also makes it more difficult to do cardio exercise for long periods of time. Breast augmentation surgery can help to reduce pain associated with breast size and make everyday activities less painful, all while promoting the client’s health.

Liposuction, a surgery previously glorified for its ability to give individuals the slim and sleek physical appearance they want, can now be considered as a health benefiting procedure as well. Your plastic surgeon in Honolulu will be happy to help you decide which surgery is right for you. Promote your body, internally and externally, by opting for a liposuction in Honolulu!

The origins of my desire to become a doctor are quite comical when you stop to think about. When I was a child I had to get a shot and due to the amount of squirming and shaking I did to avoid the needle, it broke off in my skin.
