The biochemistry and development of adipose tissue and the pathophysiology of obesity as it relates to liposuction surgery.

Abstract

It is clear that central obesity is a strong predictor of multiple health risks. It appears likely that much of the influence for the preferential deposition of fat in these various stores is related to sex hormones, although other factors clearly play a role, including genetic, environmental, nutritional, and other factors. Whereas a great deal has been discovered about these relationships in the past 10 years, further study is necessary to clarify them and determine what role dietary and surgical interventions may play in the prevention and reversal of those risk factors.
