  2. 2. The Facts <ul><li>The U.S. obesity prevalence increased from 13% to 32% between the 1960s and 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>66% of U.S. adults were overweight or obese in 2003-2004 </li></ul><ul><li>Abdominal obesity as measured by waist circumference and waist hip ratio (WHR) is an independent predictor of mortality. </li></ul><ul><li>Marginally increased waist circumference is strongly associated with prevalent hypertension in normal-weight and overweight adults. </li></ul><ul><li>Although maintaining a healthy weight should continue to be a cornerstone in the prevention of chronic diseases and premature death, maintaining a healthy waist size should also be an important goal . </li></ul>
  3. 3. Metabolic Syndrome Any Three Risk Factors <ul><li>RISK FACTOR </li></ul><ul><li>Abdominal obesity </li></ul><ul><li>Triglycerides </li></ul><ul><li>HDL cholesterol </li></ul><ul><li>Blood Pressure </li></ul><ul><li>FBS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DEFINING LEVEL </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Female >88 cm (>35”) </li></ul><ul><li>Men: >102 cm.(>40”) </li></ul><ul><li>≥ 150 ml/dl </li></ul><ul><li>Men < 40mg/dl </li></ul><ul><li>Women < 50 mg/dl </li></ul><ul><li>≥ 130/ ≥85 mm Hg </li></ul><ul><li>≥ 110 mg/dl </li></ul>Associated With Insulin Resistance and Increased risk of CHD
  4. 4. The Goal <ul><li>Achieve an improvement in the waist to hip ratios (WHR) of moderately obese patients with liposuction. </li></ul><ul><li>Document any improved metabolic status and BP of treated patients concurrent with improvement in the WHR. </li></ul><ul><li>Document the safety and reliability of twin cannula assisted liposuction (TCAL) for waistline reduction. </li></ul><ul><li>Measure patient satisfaction and evaluate the degree of skin contracture with TCAL. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Method <ul><li>Perform baseline BP, PE, waist and hip circumference measurements, total lipid profile, FBS, HbA1, and photos. </li></ul><ul><li>Perform TCAL liposuction on the abdomen and flanks sufficient to impact the waist hip ratios significantly (>10% waist reduction). </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat BP and WHR ratio measurements at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat photos at 6 months post-surgery </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat labs at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate patient satisfaction, and skin contraction at 1,3,6, and 12 months postop. </li></ul><ul><li>Correlate data with change of WHR and evaluate metabolic significance. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Twin Cannula Liposuction (TCAL) <ul><li>Only the inner cannula moves, its aspirating hole aligned with a stationary outer cannula slot. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates the battering ram effect of reciprocating cannula on the patient </li></ul><ul><li>More precise, labor-free control of fat removal and pannus thinning. </li></ul><ul><li>Cannulas don’t get hot. </li></ul><ul><li>Removes fat cells as well as fat. </li></ul>
