Should I Get Liposuction?

When it comes to confidence and self-esteem, few things have a bigger impact than your body. Like it or not, other people’s first impression of you is going to involve your weight. Sorry, but it’s true.

Alternatives to Diet and Exercise

Sometimes, exercise just isn’t enough. There are stubborn fat deposits that resist being worked off by conventional exercise. You can try every diet possible, but the outcome is still the same. Your “spare tire” or “love handles” are no laughing matter. Bulging fat deposits will make you look out of shape and fat.

Liposuction, though, should not be taken lightly. It’s a serious invasive surgery with lots of medical risk.

Lipo can be done in some surprising areas. Most people think of the legs, buttocks, stomach and arms but lipo is much more diverse that that. Chin lipo is a good option for someone in the unfortunate situation of experiencing excessive fat storage in their chin area. Chin liposuction instantly makes the entire face look fit and healthy again; nothing makes a face look fatter than a bloated chin and neck.

What About Infection?

Lipo removes fat cells from an area. Once the cells are gone, that area won’t be able to store fat.Because of this, someone who has undergone lipo must maintain a healthy body weight in order to look proportionate.

Obviously, a healthy diet and exercise are preferable to surgery. Liposuction is another option. But it has serious risks.

Consider, for example, the risk of post-operation infection. People with compromised immune systems have a high risk of developing complications after liposuction.

How Much Does it Cost?

How much does it cost? That depends on the kind or type of procedure. For example, laser liposuction costs less than an invasive procedure. And sometimes, the more areas you treat, the bigger the discount.

In general, though, I’d recommend going to the best surgeon, not the cheapest. It’s your health we’re talking about.

After lipo, you’ll be required to wear tight body shapewear during the recovery period. The skin is still accustomed to having the layer of fat, and the compression of the garments forces the skin to bond with the new shape of the body. The compression also helps with post op discomfort.

If diet and exercise don’t work, liposuction may be an alternative. Just think about it carefully, and understand the risks.
