Shape Up Your Summer With Liposuction

Even though the rain never seems to stop this time of year in the Pacific Northwest, we know that a glorious summer is still just around the corner. Until then, these extended days of gray do provide some time to get your body in the shape that you want, and you can schedule liposuction.

Make This the Year

Remember last year when you spent all that extra time at the gym doing who-knows-how-many crunches and laps around the track only to be left with the same pockets of unwanted fat that still haven’t budged? Sometimes those few extra pounds can be next to impossible to tame even if you eat right and lead an active life. Instead of doing the same gym, yoga, or Pilates routines only to see little to no improvement, you can do something about the excess fat for good this year with liposuction.

What’s BMI Got to Do with It?

While liposuction is a very effective method of getting rid of stubborn fat, not everyone is a good candidate. Liposuction is only designed to contour and sculpt the body and to refine and highlight the definitions of each individual’s unique figure. By selectively targeting localized fat that’s become resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction is only appropriate for people who are already near their ideal weight. It is not an alternative for serious weight loss, or for leading a healthy lifestyle. Lipo treatments are typically only recommended for people who are at a stable weight and have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less.

Providing Permanent Results

One of the most frequently asked questions we get about fat reduction with liposuction is, “Is it permanent?” The answer is yes! Your body only has so many fat cells, and once they are removed or destroyed, they aren’t replaced by new ones. That means you’ll not only look your best this summer, but for many more to come.

Liposuction and a Tandem of Treatments

While liposuction alone is a great way to shape the body, it’s often combined with other procedures for the greatest benefit. Your highly qualified Northwest Face and Body surgeon may recommend liposuction in conjunction with a facelift, neck lift, tummy tuck, or breast reduction for the best outcome. By adding targeted fat elimination, liposuction can be the positive difference in your contouring procedure.

A Cool Alternative for Body Sculpting

Liposuction is a proven way to safely and permanently get rid of undesirable fat in a single treatment. However, when a less invasive approach is preferred, you can still get all of the fat-reducing benefits of lipo without having to go under the knife. Slim down with a series of non-invasive CoolSculpting treatments. Over time, this fat-freezer is perfect for those typical trouble spots, gradually shaping your figure.
