One of the biggest frustrations of many gym enthusiasts is that, despite a religious workout and strict diet, fat still refuses to disappear in many areas of their body – and that genetics is to blame. These parts usually include the midsection (torso and abdomen), the thighs and the hips. As such, they find it difficult to achieve the much-desired “six pack” abs, hourglass figure and firm thighs.
Thanks to modern medical science, fitness buffs in Chicago with genetic issues can now attain a perfectly-defined body through a liposuction alternative called Liposculpture.
What Is Liposculpture?
Liposculpture, sometimes referred to as body contouring, is similar to liposuction in that it removes fat cells between the muscle and skin, but it is less invasive and requires only local anesthesia. Unlike liposuction, which removes as much of the fat as possible from the target area, Liposculpture removes fat cells only in specific subsections of the target area, leaving some for aesthetics or body contouring. In some cases, fat cells may be eliminated from one area or subsection and transferred to another based on a pre-determined plan.
Is It for You?
Liposculpture is not prescribed for major fat-reduction needs that fall under the purview of the more aggressive and invasive procedures which require facilities and general anesthesia. Liposculpture is recommended for those who want to fine-tune their body definition and achieve hourglass figures or washboard abs. So, when unsure of the fat-reduction treatment that fits you, be sure to consult a dermatologist or related expert who will help you determine the proper treatment for your body type and goal.
The effects of liposculpture are permanent; the fat cells that were removed, for instance, cannot regenerate. However, maintaining a healthy and calorie-controlled diet, as well as regular exercise, is still important to keep the results achieved by the procedure. While fat cells do not regenerate, the ones that remained could stretch and widen, negating your gains from body contouring.
