When a person finally makes the decision that they’re going to start to lose weight, the first thing they need to do is evaluate their diet. In theory, losing weight should be as simple as taking the amount of calories that you burn every single day and comparing them to the amount of calories you eat every day. If the amount of calories you eat on a daily basis is less than the amount of calories you burn on a daily basis, you should start to lose weight.
The amount of weight you lose and how quickly you lose the weight is determined in part by the calorie deficit you create. There are other factors that come into play as well, such as your metabolism and the types of foods that you’re eating. However, something that every single person who has gone on a diet knows is that even if you eat well and exercise regularly, there are still going to be problem spots on your body where you cannot eliminate the fat.
For many people, these problem spots are on their abdomen, their knees and their thighs. People start to feel frustrated if they’re working out a lot and they don’t see the results that they want in these trouble areas.
One option that is available is SmartLipo™. This is a specialized liposuction that uses lasers to help individuals who are within their healthy BMI to lose weight from problem areas. This procedure is not designed to help individuals who want to look their best, but do not want to diet and exercise. It is a body sculpting procedure, not a weight loss procedure.
One of the benefits of SmartLipo™ is that it is minimally-invasive. And the results it produces can be permanent if an individual is able to do their part by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine. Lasers will destroy stubborn fat cells, and then these melted fat cells are sucked away from the problem areas.
A second benefit of using lasers in the liposuction procedure is that the heat produced by the lasers causes the body to create collagen. This, in turn, causes the tissue to tighten, making the skin tighter and producing a smoother outcome after surgery.
When compared to traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ is able to remove large pockets of fat in a less invasive way. Since the entire procedure is minimally-invasive, patients are able to recover and get back to their daily routines in a short amount of time.
The discomfort that patients feel during the procedure is minimal thanks to the use of local anesthetic. Within just a few days after the procedure, you should be able to go back to work. Within a few weeks, you should be able to return to your normal routine.
