How Can You Get Rid of Fat Permanently? 11 Top Reasons to Choose Liposuction
1. You Will Feel Better About Yourself
If you’ve struggled all your life with feeling self-conscious about your shape, getting rid of fat in stubborn areas can be transformative. Some people have always had bulges and rolls they dislike, while others developed them after their teen years. They can destroy self-confidence, and once you feel good about your shape again, you’ll be surprised at the difference it makes to your everyday life.
Whether you’re working up the courage to ask your high school crush to attend the T.C.U. game with you or you’re trying to land your first professional job, people can tell when you’re confident. Nothing builds confidence like being satisfied with the way you look.
2. Your Clothes Will Fit Better
There are many reasons to consider liposuction. One of the most popular is being able to find clothes that fit. If you have a fairly small waist and a fair amount of excess fat on your hips, for example, it can be hard to find pants that are small enough in the waist and yet still large enough in the hips.
Use fat removal to trim your hips down. Then you’ll be able to walk into any store and find cute jeans that look great and feel even better. Whether you prefer jeans that flare at the bottom to go over your cowgirl boots or a slimmer fit that hugs your ankles and fits seamlessly into your boots, finding clothes that fit is easier when you are better proportioned. That’s precisely what this fat removal treatment is all about: creating a pleasing proportion to your silhouette.
3. Sex Will Be Better
Have you ever felt too self-conscious about your body and shape to really enjoy sex? It doesn’t matter if you’re with someone for the first time or starting to wonder if a trusted, long-standing partner is dissatisfied with your shape. Sex can’t be fully enjoyable and exciting if you’re worried about how you look. Don’t turn out the lights so your partner can’t see you. Instead, get rid of the pockets of stubborn fat that are bothering you in the first place.
4. You Have Better Job Prospects
Feeling comfortable in your professional clothes will give you the self-confidence to ask for, and get, raises. If you find your employer isn’t a good fit for you, self-confidence can help you land a job with an employer who more strongly aligns with your values and goals.
Unfortunately, self-conscious people are usually so shy that they hate interviews. Their lack of confidence prevents them from seeking an opportunity in their field with their dream employer. Your dream employer may receive hundreds of applications for a single role. If you are confident in your experience, education, and looks, your personality will shine brighter than that of other candidates’.
5. You Will Feel More Comfortable During the Summer
If you’re a DFW transplant, you may not be accustomed to the Texas heat. If you’ve been here less than a year, we can assure you, there is no reprieve during the winter, and even people born and raised here can find it much too hot. When it’s too hot to wear jeans, you need the confidence to rock a pair of comfy shorts. With fat removal and a thigh lift, you can feel comfortable and confident in any weather.
The best thing to pair with your cowgirl boots, boot cut jeans, and Stetson is a white tank top. We sometimes even see beautiful women wearing long-sleeved shirts in sweltering weather because they’re self-conscious about excess arm fat or skin. With a Mommy Makeover that includes an arm lift, you can rock your toned arms with confidence.
6. You Will Have More Fun During the Summer
Whether you want to relax by the pool at your apartment complex or go down to Lake Worth Beach, you need to feel confident in a bathing suit. You may think you feel comfortable in a baggy t-shirt and track pants, but you will notice people looking at you for wearing pants in the sweltering heat.
Noticing these looks will prevent you from having as much fun as possible over the summer. You will also feel uncomfortably hot in the clothes you chose to cover yourself up with. That is not a recipe for fun, either. If you remove excess fat from areas you’re self-conscious about, you will feel confident in swimwear and be able to enjoy every second of summer.
7. You Deserve to Feel Self-Confident
Most of our clients tell us that they want to undergo a fat removal procedure so they fit into their clothes better. However, we think the most important reason to consider this procedure is simply that you deserve to feel comfortable and confident! We only get one opportunity to enjoy life to its fullest.
How can you enjoy all life has to offer if you think you can’t wear that dress in the window because you have fat beneath your bra line? You are amazing and beautiful, and you deserve to feel confident in every situation.
8. The Results Are Permanent
There are aesthetic treatments that make you look smaller temporarily, but who wants to go in for a treatment before every important event? What if you run into your crush after the effects of treatment have worn off? What if you get invited on a spontaneous trip? What if you want to feel self-confident all the time?
Another important reason to consider this fat removal procedure is that the results are permanent. Flushing out excess water to lose a quick five pounds is great, but it is the fat cells that are really holding you back in terms of your aesthetic and self-confidence. This procedure sections out excess fat cells, and then they are gone for good. You can’t grow replacement fat cells.
9. Recovery Is Easy
Many women are wary of body contouring procedures because they are worried about the recovery process. Whether you’re seeking a full Mommy Makeover or just fat removal, recovery is easy. After your procedure or procedures, your job for a week or two will be taking it easy. Your focus will be resting, relaxing, and going on leisurely walks. And who doesn’t deserve a good excuse for some “me” time?
Everyone recovers from liposuction differently, but recovery timelines are pretty much universal. For the first 24 hours post-op, you will drift gently in and out of sleep due to the general anesthesia or sedation. You will drink plenty of water, eat healthy foods, and feel great. You will feel no pain or discomfort thanks to analgesics and natural supplements.
10. Recovery Is Short
Another reason to consider this procedure is that the recovery period is short. Most of our clients only need to take five days off of work. If you schedule your procedure for 3 o’clock Friday afternoon, for example, you can return to an office job Thursday morning and not miss a full week of work.
Unlike other procedures that require an overnight hospital stay, you are free to walk out shortly after your procedure. You can’t drive within 24 hours post-op, but if you don’t take your prescribed analgesics, you are free to go driving again a full day after your procedure. You should avoid strenuous exercise for six weeks post-op, but you can enjoy moderate cardio within a week post-op.
11. It Will Help You Maintain a Healthy Weight
Once you’ve sculpted your ideal body, your life will change forever. You will be happier, more self-confident, go on more adventures, and feel like living life to the fullest. Reveling in the way you feel will motivate you to make healthier diet and exercise choices and help you maintain your body composition. You may even be motivated to tone or build muscle mass.
Once you’ve gotten rid of those fat cells, they can’t ever come back. And while it’s true that you could gain weight as other fat cells expand, in our experience, there’s nothing like the freeing confidence of this body sculpting treatment to inspire people to take charge of their lives and keep the weight off for good.
How Does It Work?
The procedure itself is simple to understand. We use S.A.F.E. Lipo, which goes a step beyond traditional lipo for a faster, more effective experience. The first step is injecting a solution that helps to break up your fat cells. We then use a special handpiece with power assistance. This allows us to concentrate on getting you the perfect shape rather than on the physical process of moving the piece around.
With this process, we can provide extremely precise fat removal, which means you’ll never come away with an odd shape or contours that don’t look natural. Once the fat is broken up, the device sucks it away and disposes of it. Since the human body doesn’t typically grow new fat cells after puberty, you’ll never see that fat again!
Who Is a Candidate?
This is the perfect procedure for anyone who has stubborn areas of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. It’s important that you have healthy skin so it can tighten once the fat is gone, and you also need to be in generally good health overall.
It’s also important to note that this isn’t a weight-loss treatment, though you will lose some weight afterward! Weight loss is best accomplished primarily through changes to diet and exercise, but if you are within about 30 pounds of your goal weight, this procedure is for you! Most people who are interested in lipo are good candidates for this tried-and-true treatment.
