“Why am I not losing weight?”
Many of our patients who come in for a consultation often ask us this question. Their frustrations are evident by belly bulges, sagging buttocks, or flabby arms despite their healthy diet and strict fitness routines.
We often explain to them the common reasons they’re not seeing any results as expected. There are several factors that cause it, and, oftentimes, it’s due to poor habits. For instance, they’re starving themselves in the hope of not gaining weight. Others exercise too much without letting their body rest when they’re supposed to. Some people treat themselves with sugar-laden “rewards” every cheat day to compensate for their hard work.
Another factor that explains why many are not seeing results, despite working out and eating right, is that some fat cells are just too stubborn to burn easily, especially in the abdominal area.
The good news is that there are several ways to help you get rid of the stubborn fat. One of them is liposuction, which is a minimally invasive procedure that removes unwanted fat without undergoing general surgery. At Total Body, we use a laser-assisted liposuction technology called Lipotherme™, which is minimally invasive and involves minimal downtime – and generally requires just one session to remove unwanted fat permanently!
Why should you get liposuction?
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite
The bumpy appearance of cellulite can ruin a sexy look, especially if you wear tight-fitting clothes. Since cellulite is a subcutaneous fat that causes dimpling of the skin, liposuction can remove fat cells to give your skin a smooth appearance.
- Contours your body
It’s easier to achieve a svelte figure or ripped abs if there is no fat. If you want to have a sculpted body with curves in the all the right places, you certainly can benefit from this procedure.
- Improves health associated with fat loss
Fat, per se, isn’t ultimately bad, but when excess body fat is removed, your health will also improve.
- Treats certain conditions
Liposuction is used not only to contour the body but also to treat some health conditions. This includes gynecomastia, lipodystrophy syndrome, and lymphedema.
- Boosts self-confidence
As you begin to see positive changes in your body, you’ll also start feeling good about yourself. This will ultimately reflect in the way you carry yourself, and how others perceive you.
If you’re not seeing results despite working out, eating right, and following a healthy habit, stubborn fat is most likely to blame. If so, schedule an appointment with Dr. Dwayne L. Watkins at Total Body to discuss various ways to help you remove unwanted fat.
