  • The study, "Prospective Clinical Study Reveals Significant Reduction in Triglyceride Level and White Cell Count after Liposuction and Abdominoplasty and No Change in Cholesterol Levels," is being presented Sunday, September 25, 10:15 a.m., at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver
  • "Liposuction has long been considered a purely cosmetic procedure but this study has found that white blood cell counts decrease, on average, 11 percent after liposuction," said Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center and pioneer of SmartLipo.
  • "High white blood cell counts are associated with a raised level of inflammation within the body and have been linked to coronary heart disease, obesity, hypertension, and diabetes. 
  • "Not only does this new research offer positive side effects for those who undergo a liposuction procedure, but it also sheds some light on the fact that 'subcutaneous fat' that lies under the skin has more of an affect on cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk than we had originally thought," said Dr. Schaffner
