Staying fit is important to a lot of people, and probably should be important to a whole lot more. It is about more than just looking good. Being fit helps you feel good, gives you more energy, and boosts your body to better levels of general health. But for some people, a proper diet and exercise just aren’t quite enough. Some people opt to target problem areas with laser liposuction.
What all does laser liposuction entail?
Laser liposuction is relatively new in the world of body enhancement, with the procedure approved by the Food and Drug Administration as recently as 2006. Before that, in popular procedures such as traditional abdominal liposuction, in extreme cases after the fat is removed from the stomach area, the patient is left with folds or layers of excess skin. Researchers have said that the addition of lasers to the liposuction process can possibly affect the process of helping loose skin to tighten after the removal of excessive fat. And if you’ve seen the traditional liposuction before and after pictures of someone who doesn’t have the best skin elasticity, you’ll know that the ability for the skin to tighten is ideal. Laser cellulite removal is also quite popular, which may not be surprising, as cellulite can be found in right around 98% of women.
Popularity in body enhancement
There was a 12% increase from 2012 to 2013 in the number of cosmetic procedures performed, both surgical and nonsurgical. The number jumped to over 11 million procedures, which were performed by board-certified dermatologists, plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists — or ear, throat and nose specialists. However people do need to realize that getting such a procedure does not fix all of your health issues or give you free reign to live any way you choose with no regard to your health. National statistics do say that patients who have undergone liposuction are three times more likely to experience weight gain if they fail to start a healthy diet, and they are four times more likely to gain unwanted weight if they do not implement a regular exercise routine. Sometimes liposuction in a necessary step in the process of recovering a healthy body. But it is not the end result or ultimate solution. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to maintain a good health and fitness level.
Laser liposuction can be a step in the right direction. In order to become truly healthy, patients need to be aware of everything that goes into a healthy lifestyle. Everyone has to learn how to care for their bodies, and healthy diet and exercise are the most crucial components.
