Is Excess Fat Making You Want to Hibernate This Holiday Season?
It's that time of year when the whole world mingles with family, friends, and co-workers. For some, the holiday season may be the only time certain people will see each other throughout the year. This means that men and women alike want to feel and look their best.
Right now, many gyms are offering promotions regarding new memberships, which can be motivating for those who want to shed both pre- and post-holiday weight, including those pesky "love handles." While this is a great way to stay healthy all year long, many of those who sign up tend to forget that they need to maintain a healthy diet too. One without the other may not help to produce a person's desired results, which can lead to hibernation all winter. So how else can an individual achieve his or her goals?
For many, the most common problem areas are the arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs. Even with crunches, squats, and jogging, attempting to slim these areas can be difficult. Therefore, many of those who are frustrated with their shape turn to Plastic Surgery more specifically liposuction. Medically termed "lipoplasty," this procedure is designed to remove stubborn fat deposits from certain target areas. With the advanced techniques available today, such as VASER ® lipoplasty, cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons can perform this surgery with greater ease. Using ultrasound technology to break down fat cells, the doctor has the ability to easily glide through and remove the excess fatty deposits. In turn, patients will experience less bleeding, bruising, swelling, and pain as compared to traditional liposuction. They may also return to their normal activities in a shorter amount of time. Patients may be ready to show off their new figure in a matter of four to six weeks.
More recently, a new body sculpting procedure to help shed those extra inches has entered the scene Zerona (tm). This non-invasive treatment offers patients zero pain, zero surgery, and zero downtime. Using the latest in laser technology, ZERONA liquefies fat cells that are then absorbed by the lymphatic system. Passing through the body's natural detoxification process, the unwanted fat is eliminated, resulting in a slimmer figure. Patients are able to return to their daily routines immediately following this treatment. Many who have undergone this procedure often feel motivated to upkeep their new look and continue to do so with regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Tummy Tuck surgery, or "abdominoplasty" can help men and women eliminate excess, sagging skin from the stomach area. At the same time, the surgeon can tighten abdominal muscles that have been stretched-out as a result of multiple pregnancies, major weight fluctuations, and/or aging. With the help of a Tummy Tuck procedure, patients may be on their way to a flatter, slimmer midsection in just a few weeks. To achieve an even better-sculpted midsection, the surgeon may recommend combining liposuction with tummy tuck surgery. After careful examination, a personalized surgical plan can be implemented to provide the best results.
Regardless of the procedure that one decides upon, it is important to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen in order to maintain long-lasting results. Those who are committed to preserving their new look will continue to see improvements over time by adhering to a healthier lifestyle.
