With our larger patients, they get the biggest, most dramatic results since we are able to remove larger volumes of fat.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States, per the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). In 2014 it was reported that there were 363,912 liposuction procedures performed, which was a 16.3% increase from the previous report.

MyShape Lipo is a liposuction specialty clinic located in Las Vegas, NV, who focuses specifically on liposuction. Their owner, Trevor Schmidt PA-C, has performed over 15,000 liposuction procedures on all shapes and sizes of patients. Nearly 70% of their patients fly in from out of state to take advantage of their extensive experience and affordable rates.

Research and Markets is the world’s largest market research store, and provides over 1.5 million research sources to help businesses make more informed decisions. Their recent study titled "Global Liposuction Markets 2016-2020" predicts that the liposuction markets will rise by 8.45% per year, over the next 4 years.

“According to the report, a key driver in the liposuction market is the growing number of obese and overweight people worldwide. These health conditions are attributed to overeating, genetics, physical inactivity, and psychological factors. If obesity is not treated at the early stages, it may lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, and gout. Liposuction is the most preferred method for body fat reduction in overweight and obese people,” per the study.

In essence, there are more people that are facing serious health issues and they are seeking liposuction to help reduce their risks. In 2011, there was a study presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons titled, “Cosmetic Procedures May Help Reduce Risk of Heart Disease, Stroke, Diabetes.

This study found that on average, individuals were able to reduce their levels of triglycerides (aka “Bad Cholesterol”) by 43%. This happens to be nearly twice the effect achieved with a drug commonly prescribed to reduce triglycerides. Reducing this cholesterol will reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

“We regularly get patients who are more concerned about their overall health than the cosmetic results,” says Schmidt PA-C. “When you remove large volumes of fat, not only does they benefit from a health perspective, but it’s also a functional benefit as they are able to do more with less fat getting in the way."

MyShape Lipo tends to cater to the larger patients, many of which have been turned down by their plastic surgeon competitors. These patients are usually trying to avoid a tummy tuck as most find the large scars unacceptable. With the increasing trends of obesity, liposuction appears to be the preferred means to permanently remove their fat.

“With our larger patients, they get the biggest, most dramatic results since we are able to remove larger volumes of fat,” says Trevor Schmidt PA-C. “These patients also seem to be the happiest with their results as their benefits go far beyond the cosmetic appearance. Many say the removal of fat makes it easier to breath, makes movements like bending forward easier and it reduces their risks for diabetes, heart disease and stroke.”

With studies from multiple sources as well as the experience of a busy liposuction clinic, it’s clear that there will be a substantial increase in individuals taking advantage of liposuction in the coming years. For those that are struggling with obesity and would like a serious option to significantly reduce the amount of fat, then liposuction may be the best choice.
