It can be a challenge to hit the gym regularly—or at all. As anyone who’s ever tried to get in shape knows, just getting in your workout clothes and out of the house can be the biggest obstacle to fitness and weight loss.

However, many of us are inactive, and struggle with excess fat and health problems caused by this sedentary lifestyle. Fortunately, thanks to advances in medical technology, we now have some tools to help with fat accumulation, including laser liposuction.

Fat removal techniques like SmartlipoTM are not a good tool for actual weight loss—but they can be a great motivation to helping you achieve that goal.

Good Candidates for Liposuction

Liposuction is ideal for resolving unwanted isolated pockets of fat in many areas of the body. The most common areas for these “problem areas” occur in the stomach, hips, and thighs.

New, gentle techniques can now be used to treat specific areas like the knees, bra strap area, ankles, arm, calves, and even the face.

Good candidates for this procedure are healthy adults at a stable weight with stubborn fat in one or more areas of the body. Proper skin elasticity helps enhance the contour and appearance of the treated areas after surgery.

Those who smoke should not consider this procedure, as the use of nicotine products breaks down elastin in the skin, causing a loss of elasticity. Quit smoking for at least 4-6 weeks before coming in for your first consultation with a plastic surgeon.

Using Leverage

If you’d like a sculpted, beautiful beach body for next summer, then use that desire to get yourself to the gym on a regular basis. Work on the diet and exercise aspects of weight loss and body contour, and treat yourself with Smartlipo laser lipo to take care of the rest.

Permanent fat removal with lipo is also an excellent motivator to stay in shape after the surgery as well. This is because post-operative weight gain can compromise the results of surgery, and maintenance is required in order to preserve the contour originally achieved.
