Don’t Get the Wrong Idea about Liposuction Being the Lazy Way Out

Many articles that discuss liposuction say things like “if diet and exercise haven’t worked for you, try liposuction!” This sounds like an infomercial. While there are many benefits to having liposuction, one must understand what this procedure can and cannot do. Liposuction isn’t about weight loss. If you want to lose weight, diet and exercise are the healthiest habits to achieve your goal. On the other hand, if you’ve implemented healthy habits or are naturally near your goal weight, you also shouldn’t buy into the idea that liposuction is for those who are too lazy to dedicate themselves to their health and fitness. Here, we discuss what liposuction can do to bolster the outcome of your healthy lifestyle.

Let Liposuction Motivate You

It’s easy to think that, once you have liposuction, you won’t be motivated to work out and eat well anymore. This is not what we’ve witnessed in our patients. The majority of people who get liposuction are in good physical health and are committed to an active lifestyle that suits them. Most people who get liposuction aren’t completely sedentary and unable to control their cravings. Getting liposuction can be motivating in two ways:

  • When you’re new to a workout routine, you may feel self-conscious wearing the tight-fitting clothing that is common in gyms, yoga studios, and other fitness centers. It is this type of clothing, however, that is most physically comfortable for working out. Getting liposuction can put you in the right frame of mind to jump into a new fitness program already feeling comfortable with your body.
  • If you’ve been working out for a while and there is an area of the body that is just being stubborn, you may get frustrated and feel a little hopeless. Liposuction can reduce the excess fat in the problem area and give you renewed dedication to maintaining your results with a good diet and regular exercise.

You CAN Spot-Reduce

We’ve heard so many times that we can’t spot-reduce fat that we believe as complete truth. It’s only true if we rely solely on diet and exercise. Some areas of the body, like a double-chin, may linger even when you’ve lost weight. Your hips or thighs may be smaller and firmer but may still be heavier than you’d like. This is when liposuction is advantageous.
