Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S., according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, with well over a quarter million procedures performed each year. If you’ve been considering liposuction to help you look and feel your best, NeoSculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center can help. Here are five reasons why liposuction could be a great choice for you.
You'll feel more confident — and more attractive
Stubborn fat — even in isolated areas — can completely alter the way your body looks, as well as the way you feel about your appearance. And if you’ve just lost a lot of weight, those deposits of resistant fat can be a painful reminder of your past struggles, not to mention a discouraging way to finish a successful weight-loss program. Fortunately, liposuction is designed to target specific areas of fatty tissue, and since treatment is fast, you can see results quickly. With just a single treatment, liposuction can reveal slimmer, sleeker contours that help you feel more confident and more attractive. No wonder liposuction is associated with such high levels of patient satisfaction.
You can eliminate stubborn, exercise-resistant fat deposits
Liposuction isn’t meant as a substitute for diet and exercise, but it can be a great way to get rid of fatty deposits that don’t respond to those methods of losing weight. Plus, liposuction can enhance your own weight-loss efforts by sculpting areas of your body so your sleeker contours are revealed and enhanced. At NeoSculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Patel performs liposuction on multiple areas of the body, including your belly, hips, flanks, back, arms, legs, buttocks — even under your chin.
You’ll get rid of fat for good
Liposuction doesn’t shrink fat cells or shift them around. It uses special techniques to gently break apart fat cells and suction them out, which means when your treatment is over, those fat cells are gone for good. Since there are fewer fat cells in the treated part of your body, it’s a lot easier to maintain your new contours. It’s still important to eat right and get plenty of exercise since the cells that do remain can still “swell up” if you overeat. But as for the cells that are removed during your procedure, once they’re gone, they’re gone for good — they can’t “regrow.”
You'll look better in clothes
Bathing suit season is just around the corner, and if you've got stubborn fat pockets, you know how frustrating it can be to find swimwear and other clothing that fits and flatters. In fact, if you've got bulges and flab, buying a new outfit can be downright depressing. Many patients find it surprising the difference liposuction makes in how they feel in skimpier clothing as well as more tailored options like business attire. And looking better in what you're wearing can help you feel more confident, too.
You might actually improve your health
Certainly, getting rid of excess fat — even a small amount — can decrease the stress and strain on your feet, your knees and other joints, and your back (depending on where you have liposuction performed). Even a modest amount of fat reduction can help you feel more comfortable and more energized. But beyond that, recent medical research shows there may be other health benefits of liposuction as well. These studies show that by removing fat, liposuction may actually reduce your levels of triglycerides, a type of fat that’s stored in your fat cells. While some triglycerides are important for providing your body with necessary energy in between meals, too many triglycerides are associated with increased risks of heart disease and metabolic syndrome. Researchers have found that by permanently removing fat through liposuction, patients may benefit from lower levels of triglycerides and the medical problems they can cause.
