Maybe you’ve been dieting, exercising, and taking good care of yourself. The weight is coming off…but it’s just too slow! Sometimes, we don’t have the luxury of shedding weight slowly in anticipation of a big date coming up such as a wedding or major event where we need to look our best. Whether you want to lose weight to kickstart your health journey or simply want to look and feel better, liposuction is for you!
Not Everyone is Physically Equal
While everyone can make strides towards a healthier diet and a healthier lifestyle, not everyone will get the same results out of their efforts. Thankfully, we live in a time where science has shown us that our biases are unfounded—especially in the cases of weight loss.
For starters, not everyone loses weight the same way. People have varying metabolisms, hormonal profiles, as well as fat storage methods. This means that one person’s stubborn areas may be the first place fat goes for another. However, in general, it is the case that people have a hard time losing fat in the mid-section and it is typically the last place fat will go.
The Starting Line is Different For Most People
When you gain additional fat, did you know that your body is actually creating more fat cells? This means that even if you lose the fat, those fat cells remain. The cells are essentially containers for fat, and the more containers you have, the more easily they are filled up. While the biology and mechanisms between metabolism and fat loss are very complex, the truth boils down to this: if you’ve been big before, it will be easier for your body to store that fat back exactly where you lost it.
What is Liposuction and How Does it Work?
Liposuction (lipoplasty) is an aesthetic procedure that can help shape the body by removing the actual fat—and the cells along with it! Liposuction can remove those additional fat cells from the abdominal area and create a much more ideal fat distribution should you gain any extra weight after the procedure.
While it is an aesthetic procedure, we strongly believe at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery that a big part of how you feel comes down to your self-image. We always strongly advocate that people eat a healthy diet and exercise as liposuction is not a panacea for a sedentary lifestyle and nutritional deficiencies.
Many people in the United States struggle with self-image regardless of how much they exercise and diet, and stubborn stomach fat is at the top of the list of insecurities. People walk around all day holding their stomachs tight, constricting their breathing, and creating stress in the body with that shallow breathing. They do this all to maintain an illusion of a flat-stomach, is that not crazy?
This is just one example of how liposuction can be worthwhile in fostering a greater sense of wellbeing and for many people, be the spark that kickstarts a healthier lifestyle.
