Facts About Liposuction You Should Know CandyLipz October 17, 2014 Lifestyle Blog By CandyLipz.com Are you thinking about getting liposuction? If you are, read this article first before you do it. We are all born with a fixed number of fat cells in our bodies. The number of fat cells is determined in your childhood and adolescent years. Researchers discovered that fat people have more fat cells than thin people and that the number of fat cells stays the same throughout your adult life. When you get fat, you think you grow more fat cells, right? Well, that is not the case. The number of fat cells remains the same but each of your cells just get much fatter! They can double in size! When you become thinner, all your fat cells shrink! Fat cells do not simply die and loss their number as you age. Every year, 10% of your sickly decrepit old fat cells are replaced with healthy new-born ones. Each fat cell has an average life span of 10 years. So roughly every ten years, most of your fat cells are new again. The death and birth rates of fat cells are tightly control by your body- meaning the body maintains your fixed fat cell population until the end of your life. Fat is an organ just like your heart, lungs, or your kidneys. Fat is not just a backup battery for you to recharge your energy when you run low. Recently, scientists discovered that fat has an astounding therapeutic wound healing and tissue regeneration properties. It was found that human fat contains hidden stem cells- not as potent as embryonic stem cells- but they are able to build and regenerate blood vessels, nourish, and accelerate the regeneration of cells. Scientists were able to regenerate new bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, nerve, heart, and blood-vessel cells by using liposuction aspirate. If fat is crucial for the body healing process, could this be why you cannot get rid of your fat? People who had liposuction reported that they got humps and bulges in their arms, back, neck, legs, buttocks, and thighs where they did not have them before. Currently, scientists cannot confirm if the fat cells store more fat in these individuals or the number of fat cells they were born with got redistributed and populated in different parts of the body. The verdict is still out. You be the judge. Trivia: The death rates for liposuction procedures are very high. If you are in the age range of 45 to 75, the death rates are pretty much the same as the death rates of breast cancer! They are 12 to 35 deaths per 100,000! Scientists were shocked when they discovered that liposuction deaths are higher than car crash fatalities. Food for thoughts: In the case of liposuction, if your healing system is under attack or being destroyed, how do you heal? Is this why the death rate for liposuction procedures is so high? Is being fat good? Some fat people are quite healthy. Still, it is not good to be overweight or obese. You limit your body’s ability to move. Even if fat has a protective healing property, it will need a healthy exchange of oxygen and nutrients to do its job. Other Concerns: It is well documented that people frequently get lumpy lips using fat transfer procedures from their own liposuction aspirate.
