Why You Still Might Need Liposuction

At the start of a new year, many of us make resolutions to exercise more and eat more healthful foods. But, even meeting your goal weight may not provide you with the shape you want. I often find that a procedure such as liposuction can provide the body contouring benefits my Atlanta patients are looking for.

Liposuction + Healthy Lifestyle = Results

It may seem counterintuitive, but liposuction is actually the perfect complement to an active lifestyle. Even people who eat right and who are in great shape struggle with a few bumps and bulges, no matter how much they exercise. Genetics can play a part in weight distribution and can influence which areas are most prone to weight gain. Aging can also make it harder to tone specific trouble zones, since our metabolism slows as we get older.
Liposuction is ideal for removing those small, isolated areas of fat that are difficult to reduce through diet. Some of the most common areas for liposuction include:

  • Waist/flanks (love handles)
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Central abdomen (muffin top or spare tire)
  • Arms

Staying Slim for Life

After liposuction, it is very important to maintain your healthy lifestyle in order to prolong your results. After surgery, many patients actually feel more motivated to exercise and eat a low-fat diet so that they can enjoy their new body contours for as long as possible.
