Young Adulthood: “A Neglected Period That Requires Attention” The worldwide prevalence of obesity is rising dramatically.It was 5% for men and 8% for women in 1980 and has increased to 11% for men and 15% for women in 2014. There is also an increase in obesity in young adults. This increases the risk of diabetes, hypertension, joint pains, infertility, hypercholesterolemia and also some cancers at a later age. A study was conducted on US women from the Nurses Health Study and US men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study to evaluate the association of weight gain from early to middle adulthood with health outcomes later in life. The cohorts analyzed in this study included 92, 837 US women in the Nurses' Health Study (1976-June 30, 2012) and 25, 303 US men in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1986-January 31, 2012). Participants recalled their weight at age 18 years (women) or age 21 years (men) and reported their current weight at age of 55 years. Mean weight gain was 12.6±12.3 kg over the course of 37 years in women and 9.7±9.7 kg over the course of 34 years in men. Participants were also followed from age 55 years for mortality and for development of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer, cholelithiasis, severe osteoarthritis, and cataracts.It was found that the strongest direct association of weight gain was with type 2 diabetes, followed by cholelithiasis and hypertension. Colorectal cancer was significantly associated with early adulthood obesity, with the greatest risk in men who were overweight during early adulthood and subsequently gained the most weight. Among women, but not in men, moderate weight gain was associated with cholelithiasis and severe osteoarthritis. Higher BMI in early adulthood and subsequent weight gain were independently associated with increased mortality later in life. The above study and its results make us realize that efforts are to be taken to prevent and control obesity in young adults and should be accorded a high priority.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removal of fat from your body. Though you can lose some weight this is not primarily intended at weight reduction and it is not a bariatric surgery. Patients with following problems are good candidates for this procedure. It helps to get rid of excess of fat from localized areas like abdomen, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, back, arms and neck. Liposuction is equally effective in both men and women. Improves the contours Can be done in post bariatric patients who want body contouring. Can be done in combination with abdominoplasty. The procedure can be done in OPD basis under local anesthesia for small areas, or else regional or general anesthesia where patient needs to get admitted on the day of the procedure and can be discharged on the same day evening or on the next day. Liposuction Technique: The basic technique of liposuction involves the removal of fat via a hollow metal tube (cannula) that is passed through the fatty tissue. One of the most common types of liposuction involves the aspiration of fat by attaching a pump that generates a vacuum. This is known as suction assisted lipoplasty (SAL). In addition, a motor may be used on the cannula that causes the cannula to vacillate back and forth thus performing much of the “work” of liposuction known as power assisted liposuction (PAL). In tumescent liposuction, local anesthetic and other medications are injected into the fatty layer before suctioning excess fat. Risks & Complications The subject of risks and potential complications of surgery is best discussed on a personal basis between you and your plastic surgeon. Some of the potential complications that may be discussed with you include bleeding, infection, changes in sensation, scarring, allergic reactions and damage to underlying structures.

Recently a study has been conducted to find out the relationship between knee problems and obesity. The study found that if a person’s body-mass index is slightly more than the healthy range, then that person is three times more likely to have a cartilage tear. It is found that the heavy men are 15 times more likely to have torn knee cartilage, and women in the same category are at 25 times more risk. Investigations that performed repeated x-rays over time also have found that being overweight significantly increases the risk of developing knee problems. Bariatric Surgery can help people suffering from this condition. Post bariatric surgery weight loss is rapid and can get you back on your feet and lead an active life again.
