Mechanisms Defending Fat Mass in Humans After Lipectomy

2014-08-27 03:18:45 | BioPortfolio


Liposuction surgery is common, yet animal and limited human data suggest that fat returns when removed. We undertook a 1-year randomized-controlled trial of suction lipectomy versus no intervention to determine if adipose tissue is defended, and if so to determine the anatomic pattern of redistribution.


Specific Aims:

1. To determine if suction lipectomy fails to modify regional and/or total body fat over three years.

2. To determine if the expression of candidate genes predicts and/or relates to subcutaneous adipose tissue growth or depletion in subcutaneous adipose tissue after suction lipectomy.

3. To examine adipose tissue before and after suction lipectomy to uncover novel genes where expression predicts and/or relates to subcutaneous adipose tissue growth or depletion after subcutaneous suction lipectomy.
