Liposuction is a popular plastic surgery procedure that can target stubborn deposits of fat almost anywhere on the face or body, transforming troublesome bulges into smooth, lean contours.
Men and women who are at a healthy weight but have diet and exercise resistant pockets of fat often pursue liposuction to fine-tune their figures.
But liposuction doesn’t just improve your appearance. This body contouring procedure has the power to improve your physical and emotional wellbeing.
1. Reduction in Harmful Fat
Research has found that liposuction may help to lower the level of triglycerides, or “bad” fats, in the blood system. Triglycerides are implicated in heart disease, so decreasing their levels can help to protect heart health. In one study, patients who had an elevated triglyceride level before liposuction experienced a 43 percent reduction in triglycerides. Although these findings are promising, it’s worth noting that the best thing you can do to keep your heart healthy is to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and eat a nutritious diet.
2. Increased Motivation to Lead a Healthy Life
It’s no secret that when you look good, you feel good. Liposuction becomes part of a positive feedback loop, and men and women who’ve had liposuction not only celebrate their sleeker contours, they’re invested in preserving their improved shape through regular exercise and healthy eating.
3. Confidence Boost
One of the key ingredients to confidence is feeling good in your own skin. Liposuction can tackle stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise are powerless to improve, helping to smooth and sculpt your contours and boost your self-image. This newfound confidence can carry over into all aspects of your life for an overall improvement in the quality of life.
