Got Holiday Fat? Trim Up for the New Year!

Posted January 11, 2022 in Body Contouring, Liposuction

2 Minute Read: 

The holidays only occur once per year, and it’s not uncommon to find people going overboard during the merriment season. 

As you eat your favorite treats during the holidays, chances are you may accumulate a bit of unwanted fat. 

If this happens, getting rid of the fat may not be as easy as it sounds. For example, some people can exercise regularly but find that eliminating excess fat feels insurmountable. 

You may wonder, what’s the solution? Well, for some, plastic surgery can help.

Plastic surgery helps sculpt the body; these procedures are not an alternative to a healthy lifestyle, a cure for obesity, or weight-loss treatments.

Liposuction Is Effective in Eliminating Fat in Troublesome Areas

Have you been struggling with stubborn fat in specific areas? If so, you may want to consider liposuction. Body contouring with liposuction is a great way to see significant body sculpting results.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) data shows over 200,000 women and men had liposuction in 2020.

Liposuction effectively reduces fat in troublesome areas, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, hips, upper and lower back, upper arms, and neck.

Many women and men in the United States turn to liposuction when looking to contour a particular body part or reduce unwanted fat that has proven resistant to diet and exercise.

Fat Transfer Can Help Enhance Volume in Desired Areas

Fat transfer (fat injection or fat grafting) involves transferring fat from one body area to another.

Fat transfer can be an effective way to increase volume in a particular part of the body without artificial fillers. 

Fat transfer aims at reducing unwanted fat in a specific body part (through gentle liposuction) to augment or improve another area. 

If you’re looking to enhance the buttocks, hips, breasts, and face, you may want to try the fat transfer procedure.

Tummy Tuck Surgery Can Help Transform Your Midsection

An individual with an average body proportion and weight can still develop a sagging, loose and protruding belly. 

Reasons for this may include:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Prior surgery
  • Pregnancy
  • Heredity
  • Aging

If you’ve been struggling with excess fat and skin on your belly, you may want to consider tummy tuck surgery. Apart from eliminating excess fat, it can also get rid of stretch marks (if the marks are located on the removed skin) and tighten the abdominal muscles.
