There are many reasons as to why a person would want to undergo liposuction surgery. Many people want the look and body shape they have always desired. For some, everyday, traditional weight loss methods such as diet and exercise may be unsuccessful. Others may experience stubborn fat deposits due to a genetic pre-disposition. Everyone is unique in their very own way and so is their decision to have the procedure done. Learn the most common reasons why liposuction is performed.
Unsuccessful Traditional Weight Loss Methods
Sometimes, diet and exercise does not rid the body of unwanted fat. Despite traditional weight loss methods, a person may still have fat deposits. In many cases, these fat deposits are directly related to family genetics. It is not necessarily the result from lack of physical fitness or overeating. A person may feel disappointed and defeated when diet and exercise do not remove the unsightly contours.
A person who is unsatisfied with their natural body contours and proportions may rely on SmartLipo to give them the look and contours they desire. Gender also plays a role in how your body distributes fat. For men, it is very common for them to have the android body type. This particular body type has thin legs and hips. A majority of the fat deposits are found in the waist area. You may also know this body type as the “apple” shape.
Women generally have gynoid shapes or the “pear” shape. This body type carries excess weight on the thighs and hips. This is especially true for women who have had a child. Saddlebags are another reason why a woman may choose to undergo SmartLipo.
Another reason men and women choose to have SmartLipo is for cosmetic purposes. Perhaps they want to have a better self image of themselves or improve their appearance. Others may want to fit in their pre-pregnancy clothing or feel attractive in a bathing suit. SmartLipo can not only improve the way you see yourself, but boost your confidence as well. With that in mind, there are some factors to consider before undergoing liposuction surgery. It is important to have realistic expectations. Liposuction cannot change your life nor can it change the way people treat you on a day to day basis. It cannot improve skin quality and is not recommended to treat obesity.
Liposuction in Atlanta can be a positive experience for many and can give you the body proportions and contours you have always wanted. It is important to schedule a consultation with the surgeon of your choice prior to undergoing surgery. This will allow you to have realistic expectations from the beginning. Talk with your surgeon regarding any questions and concerns you may have and speak with him about the reasons as to why you have made a decision to have liposuction.
Ultherapy is really one of the latest innovations in energy-based devices. We’ve seen a history of radio frequency and laser devices and people had talked about the depth of penetration with the lasers and they go down about a millimeter and for RF devices 3 millimeters. Ultherapy will actually go down deeper. In terms of really the mechanism of action, when Ultherapy is applied to the skin, the ultra sound technology is penetrating very deep, (deeper than RF) and not involving the skin, passing through the skin, and reaching a temperature of about 60 degrees Celsius and it’s there at that temperature with the denaturization of collagen that the mechanism of action really plays out.
In our practice, the best candidates for Ultherapy Atlanta are people who have mild to moderate elasticity; people who are interested in a non-surgical face lift. There are definitely patients out there who don’t want a face lift and they’re not expecting face lift type of results but yet they still want to see improvement. In addition, there’s people who have already had a face lift and it may be several years down the road and they just feel like they’re not maintaining results. That’s actually a nice position for Ultherapy in our practice as well.
One of the things that really helped us make our decision to purchase Ultherapy for our practice was the fact that the company has supported a lot of rigorous, scientific, and clinical studies. Over twenty of those have been published in respected journals at this point. So when we’re talking to a patient and we’re showing them before and after photos, we’re able to show them that this is a representative of patients and the type of improvement that we’re hoping to see. Ultherapy is supporting a lot of clinical research at this point into other areas and I think over the next few years down the radar, we’re going to see other applications become approved as well. This is very exciting to be able to offer to people non-surgical modalities for rejuvenation of other areas.
For the last twenty years I have been lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful woman in the whole wide world. She has been my best friend and my biggest supporter. To celebrate something as big and important as twenty years together I want to do something really special. While I wanted to be more original, the one thing that I think would be very special is to repurpose to her, to ask her for another beautiful twenty years. I am still trying to figure out all of the details as far as place and what I am going to say. Boy is that a big decision. It is almost all I am thinking about right now.
The one thing I know is that I want to buy her a new beautiful gold necklace for men. When we got married we were quite young and quite broke. I had saved everything I could to buy that ring but even with all I could manage to save the ring was fairly minimal. Now that we are a little older and have more steady income I can finally buy her the ring she deserved twenty years ago. I have been visiting jewelers around Salt Lake City trying to figure out exactly what to get for her. Thankfully Utah has quite a few jewelry stores so I have been able to visit a lot of different stores and come across a good selection of different options in different price ranges. I am so excited for our anniversary, I know it will be the best one we have had so far, especially when she agrees to spend another twenty years with me.
