The hot news right now is that liposuction may in fact have health benefits instead of just cosmetic benefits. This is huge,and is set to be presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons conference in Denver this Sunday.  Dr. O’Toole  is encouraged by this report, and it may help patients understand why having liposuction when stubborn areas become an issue right away rather than waiting, could have major benefits. Dr. O’Toole offers both traditional liposuction as well as Smartlipo.  Both methods are effective for the right candidates.Dr. O’Toole explains the liposuction will not work on intra-abdominal fat.  It is also not a weight loss procedure and for the best results patients should be at or near their ideal body weight. Some patients have the wrong impression that having the procedure performed in the office is a way to save money.  Dr. O’Toole makes the recommendation for which liposuction procedure is best for each patient based on several factors.  The most important factors being results and safety.  Whichever liposuction method Dr. O’Toole, and the patient choose Dr. O’Toole is committed to helping patients have the best surgical experience possible.  According to the Los Angeles Times  ”For years, it has been assumed that visceral fat surrounding the internal organs has greater metabolic importance and is more directly linked to cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk than ‘subcutaneous fat’ that lies under the skin,”  Dr. Eric Swanson, a plastic surgeon in Leawood, Kan said in a news release. “These new findings support recent studies suggesting subcutaneous fat, which can be reduced by liposuction, is just as metabolically important.”
