    Liposuction, better with exercise

    31 Aug

    Liposuction is the most widely used cosmetic surgical procedure to remove fat from beneath the skin. However, several studies question its effectiveness and usefulness. The biggest problem is that patients quickly replace the fat removed, but not always at the site from where it was removed.

     

    According to recent studies, subcutaneous fat removed by liposuction is recovered in many cases as visceral fat, which cannot be easily removed. But it has also been demonstrated that 40 minutes of medium intensity exercise three times a week for four months after liposuction ensures proper redistribution of body fat and avoids negative side effects.
