Hi! I am Dr M Szalay and today I am going to talk about reasons why women opt for liposuction.
Many people wonder why women want to undergo liposuction. There are actually several very good reasons why a woman might want to consider liposuction.
Popular Reasons Why Women Undertake Liposuction
Some of the common reasons why women have liposuction include:
- To treat metabolism problems. Some women have metabolism related conditions such as lipohypertrophy that make weight loss difficult and in some cases impossible. Lipohypertrophy is a lump under the skin that does not go away; it is sometimes caused by underlying conditions such as diabetes.¹ In some cases, liposuction is the only way to get rid of such a lump. Many people develop lipohypertrophy as a side effect of insulin and other therapies used to treat diabetes.
- To counter metabolism changes that can make it hard to get rid of fat even with diet and exercise. Age, surgery, pregnancy, and some health problems can make it hard or even impossible for some women to get rid of fat no matter how hard they exercise or diet. Liposuction can remove such fat, particularly when it accumulates around the stomach, waists and breasts.
- To contour or shape the body. A lot of women dislike the way they look. Some women undergo liposuction in order to change features such as breasts, chins, etc., that they feel are too large.
- As part of a fat transfer procedure. Fat which is removed from one part of the body can be used to provide a plumper, more youthful look to another part of the body which may appear sunken. Fat transfer is particularly helpful for the face, where the cheeks often benefit from a fuller appearance.
Liposuction is a highly effective procedure that can be used to treat a wide variety of situations.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
