Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Choosing the Right Procedures

Is Smart Lipo Right for You?

by Michelle Austin

Whether you have a few stubborn pounds to lose, you're in overall good shape but you have a bit of loose skin or a tiny bit of fat you don't like, or you want to get more permanent results to complement your recent weight loss but you don't want to work out as much as you've been doing, you may have been considering getting liposuction. Is liposuction in general right for you? This procedure does involve using a small surgical treatment to remove fat from the body and give you a new silhouette you can appreciate, however, the procedure is somewhat invasive and can be costly.

An alternative to traditional liposuction is a procedure called Smart Lipo. This treatment uses a small tool that helps to freeze or melt away fat cells, giving you the smoother, more youthful skin you desire without having to go under the knife. Is this type of liposuction right for you? Use this guide to help you.

You have realistic expectations

Getting liposuction of any kind won't suddenly transform your body from a larger size to a more slim silhouette. Rather, liposuction is designed to target stubborn fat around the midsection, buttocks, thighs, arms, and other areas to help you achieve a healthier-looking body and help you feel better about yourself. If your expectations are realistic, you'll be able to undergo Smart Lipo, which offers positive results if you get enough treatments and get work done by a skilled professional.

You have small problem areas

Alternative liposuction treatments are designed to work best with smaller problem areas, such as small pooches in the belly, slight bulges in the arms, or mild love handles. In other words, if you don't have a lot of fat to lose or you are already basically toned, this type of liposuction is likely to work for you. You'll want to undergo a few treatments at least to see results, and you'll have to wait a while to see the more permanent results that you can achieve.

You have a relatively healthy lifestyle

You can't get any type of liposuction and expect long-lasting results if you don't have a workout routine or a healthy diet. Lipo is not designed to replace your currently healthy lifestyle. Smart Lipo will likely work for you if you are already in the process of taking care of your body and are willing to keep doing things to keep your health in check.
