A nutritious diet and adequate are essential for a long and healthy life. They can also go a long way to reducing body fat. For some people, however, diet and exercise are not enough, and stubborn body fat remains around the abdomen and other areas of the body.
While it is still essential to keep up with eating nutritious and low-fat foods and maintaining an active lifestyle, there are many treatment options to help your body boost reducing stubborn body fat, and help you get the shape you want.
Non-invasive treatments that use thermal energy or radio frequency waves can be quite successful at sculpting many areas of the body. Especially in smaller and more delicate areas, such as under the chin and neck, these are often the go-to to reducing body fat. However, they are limited in how much body fat they can remove and how deep below the skin they reach.
Liposuction might be the best option for those looking for a more permanent way to remove a more significant amount of body fat. Although slightly more invasive than other treatment options, it has been proven safe and effective. And after decades of use and advancements, modern equipment and techniques further reduce the likelihood of severe side effects or a long recovery.
Using a small cannula inserted below your skin, the body fat is either heated or dissolved before the suction removes it from your body. Unlike other treatments that destroy the cells and allow your body to remove the dead cells naturally, liposuction permanently removes all the fat cells targeted.
Since liposuction can remove a significant amount of fat from your body, there is an upper limit on how much can be removed at once. However, many patients report effective and permanent results from liposuction procedures by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced and nutritious diet.
