Is plastic surgery the answer?
Whatever your opinion on plastic surgery, there is no denying that it is extremely popular and an ever growing industry. It is easy to understand the concerns that many might have about the never ending chase for a ‘perfect body’. Also, many might claim that plastic surgery sets out unrealistic expectations of a ‘perfect body’ which is potentially damaging for the younger generation. Despite this, there is also a strong opinion that plastic surgery is actually a perfectly acceptable method in helping those that are low in confidence achieve the body that they have always wanted. Those that are advocates for plastic surgery often claim that ‘it’s your body, you should be able to do to it what you want’.
Most people would say that they would be more comfortable with their appearance if they were able to lose a few pounds in weight. For some of these people, it might just be to do with looking more attractive but for many it is also a matter of health. As readers from the western world will know, obesity is a huge problem in many societies. Not only is it a huge influence on mental happiness – physical health suffers largely from being overweight too.
There are, of course, a plethora of choices when it comes to losing weight.
How to lose weight the natural way
The most natural option for losing weight is a healthy, active lifestyle and a restrictive diet that excludes many high fat, high sugar foods. The combination of a reduced calorie diet and a more active lifestyle is extremely successful in helping to shift pounds and even stones off of your weight. It is also the option that most medical practitioners would recommend. However, for many people, this is actually a very difficult option. Other health complaints may make physical activity painful. Issues with overeating may make diets counterproductive as restricting food one day may result in ‘bingeing’ another day. Apart from this, many people simply just lack the will-power to stick to a reduced calorie diet and high exercise regime.
There are many alternatives to reducing weight by conventional means via plastic surgery. Such procedures may involve liposuction, gastric bands and cryolipolysis. Liposuction, for example, is a process that physically removes fat from areas in the body by the use of an invasive needle and suction device. This technique is highly rated by many and can produce very rapid results. Many clinics offer a vast arrange of packages that might combine several weight reduction techniques. For example, LA Lipo UK, are able to advise on the benefits of using liposuction and other techniques such as gastric bands and cryolipolysis.
What is cryolipolysis?
The word ‘cryolipolysis’ literally means ‘fat freezing’ and that is essentially what this method of weight removal promises to do. In natural weight loss programmes, such as diets combined with active regimes, it is thought that fat cells shrink down in size (producing the weight loss) but the fat cells themselves actually still remain in the body. This can easily lead to a person putting weight back on at a later date as these cells are able to re-expand. Cryolipolysis, however, appears to be different. Many practitioners claim that cryolipolysis is able to target and remove fat cells themselves over several weeks of treatment. This reduces the chance of putting the weight back on.
Deciding the best way to lose weight is an extremely personal choice. Not only that, but each person should seriously consider the health implications of any such decision before taking definitive action. It is always recommended to seek the advice of a qualified health professional before starting any type of weight loss programme.
