Some areas of the body can be resistant to healthy dieting and exercise, and toning or tightening those areas through a healthier lifestyle alone can be challenging, if not impossible. Where stubborn fat is concerned, liposuction can shape, sculpt and define in spots where many people have trouble.
Why Doesn’t It Look Like I’m Losing Weight?
Saying a dessert or entree will go to your thighs, hips or waist isn’t just a figure of speech. The body uses these areas to store excess fat that’s meant to be used later when necessary, which is why many men and women see fat form in certain areas first as they pack on the pounds. While you may be building muscle underneath from exercise, you may not see the results on the surface because your body still has these fat reserves hanging around.
How Liposuction Can Help
Liposuction can help streamline your figure by eliminating isolated pockets of fat that don’t respond to traditional weight loss methods. By permanently removing fat cells in the subcutaneous layer directly under the skin, lipo can slim down problem areas that result from your body’s natural tendency to store more fat than it needs.
Lipo can be used to eliminate fatty deposits from virtually anywhere on the body. That said, some of the most common parts of the body that can be resistant to tightening up after weight loss are the male chest, stomach, thighs and love handles, making these a few of the top target spots for liposuction.
