Liposuction is a popular, minimally-invasive surgery that has helped millions of people reduce unwanted fat from one or more areas of their bodies. Because liposuction is known as a fat-reduction procedure, there is a misconception that it is a “quick fix” that lets people get a dream body without the work of diet and exercise. This is not an accurate account of what liposuction does. Here, we discuss the role that liposuction can play in long-term appearance and fitness and why the two are not exclusive.
Liposuction Provides a Boost of Motivation
Contrary to what an “easy fix” portrays, liposuction often gives people a boost of motivation to continue their fitness goals. It is incredibly frustrating to work out and eat well and see no end in sight. It isn’t easy to achieve visible muscle definition, especially in the midsection. Why? Because this is precisely where stubborn subcutaneous fat hangs around the most. If you’ve been working on muscle tone, liposuction could be the path to seeing the fruits of your labor. Once you see more muscle tone or, if you’re not aiming for that, a slimmer figure, chances are you’ll be even more committed to keeping up the hard work of health and fitness.
Improved Comfort to Start a Workout Routine
There are a few ways that excess fat can diminish your desire to start a new workout regimen. One is that you may feel self-conscious wearing workout clothes because of pockets of fat somewhere on your body. Undergoing liposuction isn’t a bypass to exercise; it can be an exciting starting point! In addition to feeling happier with your appearance, you may feel much more confident in the tight-fitting workout clothes that are popular and comfortable for sports, yoga, and other activities.
Address the Most Stubborn Places
What many people learn the hard way is that dedication to fitness and health doesn’t always lead to the desired cosmetic outcome. Many of us are predisposed to carrying a little extra fat here or there (where is up to your genes). Some parts of the body, including the abdomen, hips, and chin, are prone to holding on to extra fat. When talking only about diet and exercise, that old saying “you can’t spot reduce fat” rings true. When talking about liposuction, this limitation is removed.
