Title: Changes in metabolic syndrome parameters after liposuction
Author: J.Payer Jr, P. Ziak, J. Fedeles Jr, K. Brazdilova, J. Fedeles

Abstract: Liposuction – one of the most frequent procedures in cosmetic surgery – is the surgical aspiration of fat from the subcutaneous layer leaving a more desirable body contour and leaving a smooth transition between the suctioned and nonsuctioned areas. Metabolic syndrome is epidemiologically important medical condition that includes insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, central obesity, hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes mellitus, and high rates of atherosclerotic disease. According to the latest findings, liposuction reduces the amount of subcutaneous fat, which changes the abdominal – superficial adipose tissue ratio and thus might affect the potential of metabolic syndrome by the means of its separate parameters and clinical manifestations. Results that can be found in the published literature remain controversial and often contradictory, thus leaving enough space for further investigations regarding the relation of these two clinical entities (Ref. 33).

Keywords: liposuction, metabolic syndrome, adipose tissue.
