3 Minute Read:
Since the start of COVID, many men and women have put on some extra pounds.
If you have been working hard to get back in shape but stubborn pockets of fat or loose skin remain, you have some excellent options to help you achieve the improved body contour you desire, just in time for the holidays!
The 5 Most Effective Ways to Improve Your Figure or Physique
Sculpt your body with liposuction to remove diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat almost anywhere. This procedure uses a powerful medical vacuum to suction away excess fat in these areas:
- Upper arms
- And more!
Liposuction is less invasive than other surgical cosmetic procedures but still involves a recovery that can be significant if a considerable amount of fat is removed or several areas are treated.
2. Upper Arm Lift
Flabby arms can soften the effect of an otherwise well-toned body. An arm lift can solve this problem permanently (unless you regain a significant amount of weight).
This procedure uses a combination of liposuction and traditional excision surgery to remove excess fat and skin for slimmer, more attractive arms.
3. Thigh Lift
If, like many others, you carry weight in your thighs (saddlebags) or have lost weight and are left with sagging skin in this area, a thigh lift can help.
Like an arm lift, this procedure combines liposuction with excision surgery to remove excess fat and skin, providing smoother contours and fitter-looking thighs.
4. Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery is the most effective way to decrease the size of your waist and remove excess skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy.
This surgery usually requires an incision along the bikini line from hip to hip so the plastic surgeon can remove stubborn fat, tighten abdominal muscles, and remove excess skin. A lengthy recovery may be involved, but this procedure can significantly improve the shape of your midsection.
5. Lower Body Lift
After considerable weight loss, you might need more than a tummy tuck. If your abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks have loose, unsightly skin that is causing skin irritation, consider a lower body lift to remove excess skin and fat around the circumference of your midsection.
This technique may include two or more of the following procedures:
- A tummy tuck
- A thigh lift
- A buttock lift
This combination of surgeries involves liposuction and excision surgery to re-contour the entire lower body and restore an abundance of confidence.
