Losing weight is a great way to improve your figure, but there are some downsides to it. Whether you're already at a perfect weight for your health or carrying a little extra, there's no way to lose fat just from the areas of your body that you want. This is a problem for people who like having a little extra carried in their buttocks, for example, or for women, their breasts. However, that doesn't mean that it's impossible to clear away fat from places like your midsection without impacting the rest of your body. Here's how it can be done.
Liposuction is a classic for changing the shape of the body without impacting the areas that you want to retain their fat. Liposuction requires surgery but provides excellent results. A surgeon will open up the area that needs to be worked on and will insert a small tube that acts like a vacuum. This tube breaks up the fat cells and sucks them out, instantly changing the appearance of the body. People have appreciated liposuction for years for its ability to dramatically change the appearance of the body without needing to lose weight or diet, so it's one possible option for you.
A newer treatment to join the market of body contouring is called Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting is a special technique that uses extreme cold to freeze fat cells, killing them. The cold isn't enough to damage your skin or muscle tissue but will annihilate fat in the treated areas that you want to be targeted.
The biggest difference between Coolsculpting and liposuction is that Coolsculpting doesn't require surgery. It's a procedure that can be performed while you're conscious and doesn't even call for anesthesia. You'll feel the cold, but you shouldn't experience any pain.
Which to Pick
Trying to decide between these two can be difficult. They both have their pros and cons, so you should weigh them to determine which is right for you.
For example, liposuction offers immediate results, but you'll have downtime from having a surgical procedure. In addition, some swelling in the area will occur because you've had surgery, so it may not look like there's a huge improvement until the swelling fully comes down.
Coolsculpting, on the other hand, takes time for its results. Once the fat cells have died, it's up to the body to remove them, which can take weeks or even months. Although it's a less traumatic procedure, if you want results sooner, liposuction might be the better choice for you.
Regardless of which you pick, both of these options can help you to get the body you've been dreaming of.
