It's already far into the new year and if you are like most people and set some serious weight loss goals like eating right and exercising a lot, then hopefully you are starting to see real results. If, however, your results are still nowhere to be found or if they are not as good as you would have hoped, then you may want to consider a body contouring procedure. But what kinds of body contouring procedures are there? This article will take a closer look. Read on to learn a little bit more.
The most popular form of body contouring for you to consider getting done is called liposuction. Liposuction is designed to help patients like you lose stubborn fat that isn't responsive to diet and exercise alone. During liposuction, you will usually be under anesthesia. Then, your doctor will make a small incision and scrape off the fat cells from the body. Once the fat has been scraped off, your surgeon will then remove it from your body with a device called a cannula, which is basically a vacuum.
If you want to lose weight but don't want the scarring, then Smart Lipo may be the perfect procedure for you. Rather than scraping off excess fat from the body, smart lipo uses a laser to heat up the fat which causes it to liquefy. Once it has been liquefied, then your surgeon will suction all of the fat out of your body with a smaller cannula, which means that you will have a smaller incision and less scarring in the process.
If you want to lose weight but don't want to have to go under the knife to do so, then Cool sculpting is worth considering. During this noninvasive procedure, your doctor will use a cooling technology to cool your fat cells and freeze them. Once your fat cells have been frozen, they will fall off a few months later and then your body will naturally excrete them through your urine.
As you can see, you have several weight loss options to choose from. If you want to learn more about these options and which ones will give you the best results possible, then contact a cosmetic surgeon near you today and schedule a consultation. During your consultation, they will go over all of these procedures and help you pick the one that is best for you.
