Liposuction exposed: The fat comes back, but in different places

(NaturalNews) Are you looking for a quick way to reduce body fat and your waistline? Don't try liposuction; you may very well wind up regretting that decision.

A report in Britain's Daily Mail newspaper said U.S. researchers Teri Hernandez and Robert Eckel, both of the University of Colorado, have found that having liposuction only makes the fat come back in different, and altogether unexpected, places.

While fat doesn't return to the same areas - usually liposuction is targeted at the hips and thighs - it does return, manifesting itself around the shoulders, arms and upper abdomen and even your neck, according to the study, which examined 32 non-obese women who had an average weight and were in their mid-30s.

Rudolph Leibel, an obesity researcher at New York's Columbia University, said after analyzing the Colorado study's results found that the reason why fat doesn't return to the same areas of the body is because the liposuction process destroys the structure underneath the skin, making the body compensate by allowing fat to congregate in new regions.

While liposuction surgery may indeed damage structures under the skin, the notion that your body decides where to allow fat to congregate isn't new. What also isn't new is that liposuction doesn't do anything for you long term except cost you time and money that improving your lifestyle would do for you without it.

Liposuction has increased in popularity over the years as greater acceptance of plastic surgery has evolved. But the complications and side effects haven't.

According to medical professionals, liposuction is supposedly safe if it's performed a certain way. But aggressive liposuction - removing large volumes of fat at once - can cause a rapid re-growth of fat. And aggressive liposuction can also cause long-lasting tissue and nerve damage as well.

Living a better lifestyle - eating more fruits and vegetables while avoiding too much meat, getting regular exercise and plenty of sleep, as well as skipping excessive alcohol and processed food consumption - can all do for you naturally what liposuction does artificially. The results will last far longer - a lifetime, even - with far less risk and a much less chance of having that fat return.

Liposuction isn't an alternative to better living and dieting. What it is, however, is a $15-$16 billion a year business.
