We live in a vain society. We are also a growing society — in girth that is. More than two-thirds of all Americans over age 20 are overweight or obese. More than one-third are obese. This isn’t just a vanity issue, it’s a health issue. Being overweight causes many medical problems, it’s why Diabetes is on the rise.
So, we hit the gym and starve ourselves. The former is decent but isn’t always enough. The latter is really horrible because it puts our bodies into starvation mode. We simply did not evolve to be good at weight loss. Think about it, our ancestors didn’t have a Wendy’s down the block, weight loss meant death. We are the beneficiaries of those genes.
That’s why we turn in huge numbers to liposuction and laser liposuction. In 2013, board certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists and otolaryngologists performed more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures. That was a jump of 12% from the year before. And it’s just getting more popular because it’s a service men can benefit from as well.
But it is women who get plastic surgery the most. In 2013, they had more than 10 million cosmetic procedures — that’s more than 90% of what was performed that year. And more and more are turning to laser liposuction and traditional liposuction. The number of procedures performed went up by 16.3% in 2013 from the year before. A recent poll reported in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed that more than 80% of the people who had this done were happy and more than 75% reported they would recommend it to the people they care bout. Surgeons are using these techniques and are reshaping bodies all over the globe.
So, what is laser liposuction? How does it differ from traditional liposuction?
Laser liposuction is a less invasive approach to the procedure. Physicians use light energy to encourage fat removal and skin tightening. It has been proven to be safe and effective. During the procedure, about 90% of what the lasers absorb is water.
You might wonder, do i qualify for laser liposculpture?
It is not right for all patients but those with mild or even moderate amounts of weight they want to lose, it can be perfect. As with traditional liposuction, patients should start (if they haven’t yet) a diet and exercise regimen that they have gotten approved b their doctor. This will decrease the likelihood of them gaining the weight back.
You might also be asking, how much does liposuction cost? Is it possible to get cosmetic procedure financing?
Go, and talk to a local center or office that provides laser liposuction and talk to them about it. When we feel we look our best, we feel our best. Whether you have one spot you want – well, gone or several, this is an effective weight loss technique.
