Liposuction as a weight loss possibility

One of the major frustrations a person has to endure in life is being fat and the endeavours in the losing of this weight. Anyone on a diet can confirm this and an added frustration is the way some fat remains on parts of the body while in other areas it simply seems to fall off or melt away.

Exercise and diet work well together and exercise is easy on areas such as the arms, legs and stomach and the results are soon noticed. Some parts of the body like the chin, bottom and hips unfortunately, are more difficult to get back into shape. When all has failed the dieter may wish to consider liposuction.

Liposuction is a relatively safe and sure way of removing fat from certain parts of the body and has been around for some time now. Although it is unsafe to eradicate all the fat from a specific area, it is certainly safe enough and a fairly common procedure to eliminate the excess fat. There is some debate as to whether the fat will return after liposuction but combining a healthy diet with exercise should help prevent the return.

There are several methods used in the liposuction procedure of which the combination of suction and laser is the most common. The surgeon makes a very small incision into the area and inserts a small tube which is equipped with a laser on its tip. The laser melts the fat and this is then sucked out through the tube, leaving the affected area free of fat.

After a while the body will take on a smooth and slender look but not before the after effects of the liposuction procedure have worn off. Just as in any procedure the body will be bruised and swollen and these will take a little while to heal. Depending on the area treated it may be difficult to walk or even stand straight up for a few days.

Liposuction is not the ultimate answer to all fat problems. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise are vital in maintaining the new look. Some body areas may require a more intense exercise programme. As with all drastic measures it is always best to speak to a doctor or plastic surgeon before opting for liposuction. They will be able to give the best advice taking all health aspects into consideration.
