Diet and exercise are important to help keep us fit and trim. But despite our best efforts, exercise may not be able to help us achieve our ultimate goals. In many cases, exercise is ineffective in treating the problem – while plastic surgery can help us to address it.
Plastic surgery can do things that diet and exercise simply can’t achieve. Here are a few examples of body contouring procedures that can achieve the results exercise can’t.
Liposuction – For Targeted Areas of Stubborn Fat
Exercise can help keep you fit, but sometimes it is ineffective in addressing certain targeted areas of stubborn fat. For instance, stubborn fat in the abdomen, thighs or buttocks may not respond to your best exercise efforts, but liposuction can permanently remove fat cells from these areas of the body. These fat cells are removed via a suctioning technique performed with the use of a very thin tube known as a cannula.
Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise and it is not a weight loss technique. If you are going through a weight loss journey, it is important to wait until your weight stabilizes before getting any cosmetic procedures. Liposuction is a safe and effective way to refine and sculpt the body in certain problem areas, providing a more toned appearance.
Benefits of the Tummy Tuck
The abdomen is one of the most difficult areas of the body to firm and tone. And if you have sagging skin as the result of pregnancy or extreme weight loss, no amount of exercise can address that sagging skin. It can only be tightened and removed by a tummy tuck surgery.
Also referred to as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in which excess fat and skin in the abdominal area is trimmed and tightened, resulting in a flatter midsection. The procedure may also restore abdominal muscles that have weakened or separated over time.
For some people, a tummy tuck is the only way to achieve the flat abs they desire. If you have had little success tightening your abdominals through exercise, you may want to consider the procedure.
Breast Enhancement Surgery
Many women are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts, but exercise alone cannot solve many of these problems. If you want larger breasts, smaller breasts, or breasts that do not sag, only breast enhancement surgery can give you the results you desire.
