Diet and Exercise or Liposuction?

You have been working your butt off trying to lose weight. You have reached your goal weight, but there is that one area where the fat just won’t disappear. Is liposuction a good idea?

First of all liposuction is a cosmetic procedure. It also falls under the name “suction-assisted lipectomy” or even “lipoplasty”. If you are thinking about it as an option, you should understand that liposuction is not a form of weight loss. It is only design to remove stubborn fat areas that just won’t respond to exercising and dieting. In other words, it is to be treated as the ultimate last resort if you are really intent on removing the fat areas.

Some of the most common areas targeted for the liposuction procedure are:

  • Inner Thighs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Love Handles
  • Abdominals

Liposuction is a great option for those who want to remove just a small amount of fat tissue in a certain area. It can be a real confidence booster for many people who are self-conscious about those problem areas. It is not an option for those looking to lose a large amount of fat. The procedure itself is time tested and safety has improved dramatically over time, but just like any other such procedure, it is surgery and there are risks involved. If you choose this route, be sure you get n authorized and well qualified surgeon. For example, if you are looking for liposuction Michigan, perform the search online and look for reviews and customer before/after pictures from each surgeon before making a decision.

Choosing a surgeon based on the lowest price might end up being the most costly choice. There is such thing as a good surgeon at a lower price, but when shopping around, just be sure you don’t put your body on the sale rack.

Some of the unsatisfactory outcomes include:

  • Incomplete lipo where it is difficult to tell if there was even anything done
  • Excessive lipo which leaves an unnatural look for body proportions.
  • Asymmetrical or uneven results
  • Abrasions in the skin
  • Huge scars

So just be careful when choosing a surgeon if you decide to take the surgical route.
