Are you generally content with the way you look but… that pad of fat on your belly makes you frown? Do you exercise, maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat healthy foods, but still there are areas of your body that won’t get rid of the fat deposits?
In recent years, liposuction received a lot of attention as an effective method of dealing with stubborn deposits of fat.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction and liposculpture are cosmetic surgeries that removes excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. It is a treatment that is recommended when you struggle with a specific area that contains pockets of fat which are difficult to remove by targeted exercise or diet.
This is a gentle but invasive procedure and should not be a substitute for a healthy lifestyle in which you pay attention to physical activity and diet. However, it can be an amazing support and an energy boost for your self-confidence.
Liposuction “gives [people] the impetus … to change their own perception of themselves,” says Dr. Michael Rich from Specialist Clinics of Australia in Sydney.
The procedure is not a substitute for controlled weight loss but it can be a good motivator when it comes to people choosing a healthy lifestyle and it can finally put years-long complexes behind you.
Which area of the body are appropriate for Liposuction?
“In general, you can have liposuction done on any area that has excessive fat,” says Dr. Rich. If you are unhappy with a particular section of your body, you can consider liposuction to help you fix the problem and gain confidence.
Areas for which you can consider for liposuction include:
- Upper arms
- Male & female breasts
- Outer thigh
- Inner thigh
Liposuction is challenging when there is not enough fat in the area to be treated, and it is not recommended in such a case. However, as long as you have fat deposits in the areas of concern, the specialised doctors can use liposuction to reshape your body.
How does the procedure influence people’s lives?
“This procedure is not about making you slim per se and approaching liposuction with this in mind creates false expectations. However, it will definitely elevate your self-esteem,” says Dr. Rich.
Liposuction is a chance to get you an additional step further in achieving the looks you desire and this is the most rewarding thing about the procedure. You’re spending your time exercising, you’ve invested in a healthy diet and you’re taking care of a healthy lifestyle in general – liposuction is that little extra help from the outside.
