Overindulging throughout the holidays and winter months is extremely common, which is most likely why the vast majority of New Year’s resolutions focus on being healthier and losing weight. Despite great efforts of eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet and exercising on a regular basis, however, many individuals notice that certain areas of the body remain resistant to change. Thankfully, these localized pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat can often be successfully treated with liposuction, helping to achieve a slimmer, more toned contour in the targeted region. Some of the most common areas that can be addressed with liposuction include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, buttocks, and back, as well as isolated fat accumulations in the neck, chin, and face.
To be considered an ideal candidate for liposuction, you need to be at or close to your desired weight and in relatively good overall health. In some instances, performing tummy tuck surgery or other complementary procedures in conjunction with liposuction may be recommended to attain an optimal outcome. Following treatment, it is critical that you continue to eat a well-rounded diet and get regular exercise, as any future weight gain may negatively affect your results.
Ultimately, liposuction should not be considered a weight loss treatment on its own, but when used to accentuate the efforts of a healthy diet and regular exercise, the fat reduction procedure may be able to help you achieve the figure you desire.
