The events of the past two years have resulted in many adults putting on a few pounds they never intended to. Stress can do that to a person. So can a sedentary lifestyle, which some leaned toward out of an abundance of caution but without full awareness of the consequences. As we get back into the swing of things, many people are looking for a jump start back to their best bodies. Liposuction may be the perfect launching pad. If you’re considering this body contouring procedure, there are a few things you should know.
Liposuction is the Gold Standard in Body Contouring
While a healthy lifestyle offers many significant benefits, it may not get you the shape you want. We call excess fatty tissue on the abdomen, thighs, and other areas stubborn for a reason. It simply doesn’t resolve sometimes. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that has been performed for many years, helping millions of people achieve their ideal contours. A single procedure can beautifully sculpt large areas, small areas, and even multiple areas in one surgery, achieving consistent, predictable results.
Liposuction is Body Contouring, Not Weight Loss
There are a few reasons people set weight loss goals. One is because they want to be healthier in general and reduce their risks for various diseases. Another is that they want to love the way they look. Liposuction can help somewhat with both of these goals. What it will not accomplish is achieving a certain weight. You could have liposuction and see no difference on the scale or very little difference. Where you will notice a change is in your curves and also possibly in the size of clothing you wear.
Liposuction Permanently Removes Fat
It is interesting that liposuction does not result in weight loss because it does permanently remove a certain amount of fat cells. After surgery, the body does not grow new fatty tissue, so the results of this procedure can endure for m any years. That said, it does require consistency in your healthy lifestyle habits. To maintain your body sculpting results, find a way of eating that meets your body’s needs for fuel, not fun. When it comes to fun, find workouts that you look forward to. These are simple steps to prolong the benefits of your liposuction procedure.
