Even though summer comes at the same time every year, it often takes many people by surprise. Suddenly, the weather is warmer, the days are longer, and bathing suit season has officially begun. The debut of short shorts and sleeveless tops reminds so many of us of a nugget of wisdom we should have taken to heart a few months ago: “Summer bodies are made in the winter.”
Getting rid of excess flab or toning up to see a noticeable difference does indeed take time. It also takes determination, planning, and consistency with healthy eating and exercise. Unfortunately, even those who reach their goal weight may still have deposits of fat in the areas that the summer sun seems to highlight: the arms, back, abdomen, and thighs. When it comes to getting rid of flab in these trouble zones for long-term, lifestyle-friendly results, liposuction is the best option.
Benefits of Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because it is so versatile. In about two hours, you can have fat suctioned away from multiple areas of your body. The incisions for the suctioning tool are less than one inch in length, and any resulting scars are difficult to notice. Recovery time is about two weeks, and results are apparent immediately. In a matter of weeks, once any swelling subsides, your body will be completely ready for summer.
Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, nor is it a procedure for weight loss. However, it can sculpt and define the areas of the body that no longer “bounce back” from the effects of aging, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy. For many men and women, this procedure greatly impacts their self-esteem as they can fit into smaller sizes, wear tighter styles, and show off their new body with confidence all summer long.
