If you got your fitness on during quarantine and reached a major weight loss milestone, congratulations! Having the time to work on your goals and become a healthier, happier you have been a welcome bright spot during the pandemic.
Now, you might be wondering what’s next. Often, men and women are left with stubborn pockets of fat in areas like the abdomen, hips, and thighs that don’t seem to budge, despite a healthy diet and exercise program.
Fortunately, there are plenty of body contouring options to fine-tune your workout results and get the flat belly or smooth contours that you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Take a look at three of the best body contouring options to help you decide which could be right for you.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring option that works by freezing targeted fat cells, essentially disabling and destroying them. Those fat cells are then removed through your body’s natural waste removal process, revealing a slimmer and more toned physique that develops over the next weeks and months. Because it is nonsurgical, there is little to no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.
Liposuction requires small incisions through which a hollow tube called a cannula can be inserted. Excess fat is removed via suction through this tube, eliminating stubborn fat cells and creating a slimmer and more toned contour.
Liposuction can be performed in virtually all areas, including your stomach, hips, waist, thighs, and upper arms. Most people are able to return to work in 1 to 2 weeks after getting liposuction.
Also called abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck addresses excess or loose skin in the abdominal area that often results after massive weight loss, pregnancy or the natural aging process. A tummy tuck is often combined with liposuction for enhanced body slimming results.
