Internal Adiposity and Liposuction


Internal Adiposity and Liposuction

Can liposuction solve the problem of internal adiposity? What is the difference between internal fat and subcutaneous fat?

When we evaluate many consultation forms, pictures and videos that come from you to Clinic Health Beauty doctors, we realize that patients confuse some information or do not have clear information about the subject. It is especially important for them to know who liposuction is suitable for. For this reason, we regret to tell many patients that they are not suitable candidates for liposuction due to internal fat.

Note! Internal Fat is not solved by Liposuction

Visceral adiposity is an increase in fatty tissue around organs inside the body. This fat accumulates around the liver, intestines and other internal organs. Visceral adiposity has been associated with obesity and may increase the risk of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other health problems. Therefore, internal fat accumulates around the internal organs and not under the skin.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which excess fat tissue is removed from the body using a vacuum. However, liposuction is not an effective method to solve the problem of internal adiposity. Liposuction only targets subcutaneous fat tissue and does not reduce the amount of fat inside the body. Therefore, liposuction is not performed to combat internal adiposity.

In patients with internal fat, the belly can often be more taut and bulging. You may not feel excess skin just below the skin of the belly. This is because the fat has accumulated around the organs in the taut abdomen.

My Body Mass Index is 30 but I have internal fat

Not everyone with internal fat does not mean that they are obese. Among the features we look for for liposuction is that the patient’s BMI values should be 30 and below 30. Patients with internal adiposity may have a BMI of 30 or below 30. This does not mean that they are suitable for liposuction. This is because liposuction cannulas pull the fat under the skin. It cannot touch the inner part, that is, the parts with internal fat.

We would like to point out that it is very important to consult with specialist doctors in the field to have smooth body contours and to get rid of the problem of regional adiposity. We would like to state that the success rate of liposuction results of patients with internal adiposity problems will be very low.

It is generally possible to reduce internal fat by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, avoiding processed foods and reducing stress can help reduce the level of internal fat. However, it is important to seek professional advice from a health professional to address a serious health issue such as internal fat.

Internal Fat and Stomach Reduction Surgery

Internal adiposity (visceral adiposity) and stomach reduction surgery (usually procedures such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass) are different concepts, but they can be used together to manage obesity and promote weight loss.

Internal Adiposity

Internal adiposity is fatty tissue that accumulates around the body’s internal organs. This type of adiposity can increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease and other serious health problems. Internal adiposity is usually measured around the waist, and an increase in waist circumference is considered an indicator of internal adiposity.

Stomach Reduction Surgery

Stomach reduction surgery is the surgical method used to treat obesity and promote weight loss. These methods include various techniques such as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass. These surgeries promote weight loss by reducing the volume of the stomach and, in some cases, also changing the absorption of the intestines. There is a link between these two concepts because internal fat is often associated with obesity and gastric reduction surgeries are used to treat obesity. Stomach reduction surgeries can be an effective way to manage obesity-related health problems and reduce levels of internal adiposity. However, it should be noted that stomach reduction surgeries do not directly target internal adiposity. Reducing internal adiposity is usually possible by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet and reducing stress can help reduce internal fat.
