We all want to look our best, but especially as we get older, we may find that diet and exercise just aren’t enough to get the results we strive for. For many, the solution has been to undergo procedures such as liposuction to remove fat from stubborn problem areas, only to discover the results were not exactly what was expected.

What most people are not aware of is that liposuction is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Different procedures may produce better results in some people than others, and in some parts of the body more than others. After all, the way a person stores and carries fat will vary from person to person. The way our body is shaped and chooses to store fat is largely based upon genetics, though lifestyle is also an important factor to take into consideration. For instance, a woman whose mother has large hips is also likely to store excess fat around the hips and buttocks, regardless of her level of physical fitness. However, a lack of exercise is likely to enhance the problem.

The procedure that will produce the best results is largely dependent on what result a person is aiming for. For instance, a bikini tummy tuck is the perfect solution for those with excess fat around the abdominal area, as it removes the fat and stretches the abdominal skin with minimal surgical marking, located below the bikini line. For those who are unhappy with the shape of their buttocks, the Brazilian Butt Lift is design to lift and enhance, giving the derriere a fuller, more rounded shape. Liposculpture removes excess fat and improves the overall shape of the figure, perfect for those who may have just a little extra unwanted fat in a few different places.

For those who are looking for a more traditional lipo experience, SmartLipo and Body Jet Lipo are beneficial options. SmartLipo melts away excess fat and tightens skin using laser technology, for optimal results. Body Jet Lipo is what most people think of when they think of liposuction procedures, where the patient undergoes fat suctioning, either to improve a person’s shape, or for fat grafting and injection into other parts of the body.

For many patients, a change in diet and lifestyle is needed to keep the results of these procedures over the long term. With so many options available, there’s no reason not to take a step closer to being the person you want to be; a happier, healthier, slimmer you.
