Liposuction has grown increasingly popular over the past decade. Millions of people have undergone lipoplasty for a number of different reasons. Determining whether liposuction is the right option for you can sometimes be tricky. For your consideration, here’s a list of five good reasons to get liposuction.
1. Improve your body-image and self-confidence.
Being pleased with your appearance is sometimes easier said than done. Dissatisfaction with one’s appearance can lead to depression and decreased self-confidence. Being confident in your appearance is something that others will notice. And while liposuction will not help someone lose large amounts of unwanted weight overnight, it can help you get rid of 5-10 lbs. of unwanted fat in those stubborn areas.
2. Lack of results from diet and exercise.
Both diet and exercise are important facets of any healthy lifestyle, but they don’t always give us those perfectly chiseled figures we might want. There are many factors that can affect weight loss even in the face of healthy diet and exercise. Liposuction can help those who have already adopted a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, to shape areas of the body that have not seen improvement after a healthy fitness regimen. Liposuction can help you banish that stubborn belly fat once and for all.
3. Long-term solution to weight-loss.
Studies have show that liposuction is a great way to permanently reduce fat cells in both treated and untreated areas of the body. Any fat removed from the body during the liposuction procedure is almost always gone forever. Only in rare cases of extreme and rapid weight gain—this would require you to stop exercising and to adopt a very unhealthy diet—will fat return. The great long-term results of liposuction stem from the nature of the procedure itself. Traditional weight loss methods simply shrink fat cells while liposuction removes them entirely.
4. Stubborn baby weight.
Regaining your pre-baby figure is often hard to do. Even with diet and exercise, the physical changes a mother’s body endures during pregnancy can make it difficult to lose unwanted baby weight. Liposuction in conjunction with a tummy tuck can help mothers repair some of the unwanted physical remnants of pregnancy and restore confidence in their appearance.
5. It’s very safe.
Liposuction is a very safe cosmetic procedure. Scarring is generally very minimal and people can typically get back to light activity within a 3-5 days of their procedure. Furthermore, losing weight had great cardiovascular benefits and less strain on the body.
