If you have stubborn fat that is keeping you from reaching your goals, there is an effective way to get rid of it that doesn’t involve the gym or a restrictive diet. Sometimes a healthy diet and a consistent workout routine just don’t cut it: you need something more, and we have just the thing. At Northstate Plastic Surgery Associates in Chico, CA, we can help you reach all of your body goals and get rid of stubborn body fat with liposuction.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Contrary to popular opinion, liposuction is not a way to lose weight. It is a body contouring method that removes fat from the body for those who are near their goal weight but just need a little extra help. This body contouring method will help you get an edge on your fat loss goals and help you get to your goal body that much faster.
Good candidates have certain things in common:
You Are at or Near Your Goal Weight
Those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have finally reached their goals, but still have pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and fitness efforts, are good candidates for liposuction. This body contouring method will finally help you reach your ideal body image and get rid of the fat that’s been keeping you from looking and feeling your best.
Your Diet and Fitness Routine Aren’t Getting You Results
You don’t have to have recently lost a lot of weight to qualify as a candidate for this fat removal method. Some of the fittest people have sought out liposuction as a way to get rid of stubborn fat that’s been holding them back for years, despite being at near peak physical shape. Some of the fittest people that you have seen on social media or television have actually used this body contouring technique to look the way that they do.
Your Goal Is Fat Reduction, Not Skin Tightening
If your main goal is to reduce areas of fat on your body, you are most likely a candidate for this fat removal method. If you have excess skin due to significant weight loss, this method will only remove the excess fat. It will not improve the appearance of or tighten excess skin.
You will need to undergo a separate treatment to tighten your skin if skin tightening is one of your goals. Having realistic expectations of what this fat removal method is and what it isn’t will help you know exactly what to expect going into treatment.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the safest and most popular body contouring methods available. It is an effective way to get rid of the stubborn fat that is standing between you and your body goals, the same stubborn fat that just won’t seem to respond to any of your diet and fitness efforts.
What Areas of the Body Can It Improve?
Liposuction can get rid of stubborn fat in virtually any area of the body, but the most popular areas include the buttocks, inner and outer thighs, arms, hips, love handles, saddlebags, calves, male and female breasts, back, saddlebags, ankles, and the neck. These are the areas that typically hold onto stubborn fat in most patients, but if you have an area of fat not listed, you may still qualify for treatment.
Be sure to mention every area that you want to treat during your initial consultation. One of our experts will review your goals and examine your problem areas to determine if this treatment will help you reach those goals.
How Long Do Results Last?
The benefit of liposuction is that results are permanent. Once the fat is removed from the body, it can’t come back; it will be gone for good. However, you are responsible for maintaining your results. This method will remove fat cells present at the time of treatment but it will not prevent the development of new ones. The best way to maintain your body contouring results is to follow a healthy lifestyle that includes a clean diet and a consistent workout routine.
Movement is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. You don’t have to be a bodybuilder to maintain your body contouring results, but you do need to exercise regularly. Focus on performing at least 30 minutes of cardio daily to keep your cardiovascular health in check, and also add weight training to your fitness routine to build lean muscle mass.
The presence of lean muscle mass helps keep your metabolism running quickly and efficiently so that you can maintain a healthy weight and stay tight and toned.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Diet plays a highly underestimated role in the weight loss process and in maintaining a healthy BMI. You don’t have to adhere to a restrictive diet to maintain your results, but you do need to eat whole, clean, nutritious foods that nourish your body.
