The Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team Offers Advice to Fat Transfer New York Patients:

If you had to say what fat actually does, what would you say?

It’s hard to initially come up with too many good things to say about fat because it is commonly associated with lumps, bumps, and being overweight. However, fat isn’t all bad! In fact, the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team reminds their fat transfer New York patients that we all need some fat on our bodies in order to be healthy. Obviously, too much of any good thing can become bad.


The important thing to know is that there are two kinds of fat: subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat, which is right beneath the skin, is the type that can be removed with liposuction.

At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we provide both tumescent liposuction and SmartLipo to help our fat transfer New York patients rid themselves of subcutaneous fat.

Dangers of Visceral Fat

Visceral fat is the fat that is deeper and dangerous when there is too much on the body. Living in the abdominal cavity, it is associated with diabetes, cardiac disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, and many other health issues. Your genes and the amount of bad habits you have will determine how much visceral fat you hold.

Contact Dr. Emmanuel Asare About our Fat Transfer New York Centers.Unfortunately cosmetic surgery has yet to create a way of getting rid of this type of fat. Aside from a few medical procedures meant only for patients who are morbidly obese and several medications that can cut down on appetite or fat absorption, the only way of nixing visceral fat is with good old fashioned diet and exercise.

However, the people who need to do these the most are sometimes in such poor health or physical pain that they may not know where to begin.

Interestingly enough, new studies show that people who don’t appear obese can have higher contents of visceral fat over subcutaneous fat.

Meaning, everybody should attempt to eat healthy and exercise a little bit daily. This what we advise our fat transfer New York patients to follow as a regular part of their everyday lives.
