Diet and exercise are a great way to stay healthy – but they can’t always give you the figure you desire. Many women who’ve lost weight or gotten into shape find that areas of fat or excess skin can’t be spot reduced. In addition, when you lose weight, you might lose the curves and volume you once enjoyed in your breasts or buttocks.
With all your hard work, you deserve a body that turns heads. And with today’s cosmetic surgery options, you can have one – with procedures designed to eliminate areas of fat, tighten skin, or add curves. Here are a few ways to optimize your figure and eliminate the problem areas that don’t respond to a healthy lifestyle:
- Liposuction. This is a tried-and-true procedure that removes excess fat from a specific area. It can be done on the lower body, including hips and thighs, as well as the abdomen and waist, and even the arms. Its versatility and ability to remove larger fat deposits makes it a popular option for many people. This surgery is typically outpatient, so you can go home the same day.
- Tummy tuck. As the name implies, a tummy tuck is specifically for the abdominal area and targets both excess fat, as well as loose muscle, tissue, and skin. Your surgeon may use liposuction to remove problem fat deposits and may then tighten muscles and/or remove any excess tissue and skin to give you back a more youthful, smooth, and toned abdomen. This is especially effective for people who have lost a large amount of weight or women who have experienced abdominal stretching from pregnancy.
- Buttocks fat transfer. After weight loss, many women lose their once-curvy backside. This minimally invasive procedure will add your body’s own natural fat back into the buttocks with a series of injections. You get the advantage of no problematic buttock implants, a shorter recovery time, and fat reduction in another area of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs.
- Breast augmentation or breast fat transfer. Losing weight often means losing our desired volume in the breasts. At GLOW Surgical Arts, we offer patients the choice of a traditional breast augmentation with implants, as well as our state-of-the-art breast fat transfer. The implants offer a more dramatic increase in size, while the fat transfer is a more modest increase with less downtime. You and your surgeon can discuss which procedure is best for you.
With any of these options, it’s important that you use an experienced cosmetic surgeon. The safety and effectiveness of these procedures, as well as the end result, depend heavily upon the skill of your physician. A qualified surgeon should offer you a complimentary consultation, answer any questions you have, and not put pressure on you to book a procedure before you are ready.
