Should You Consider Liposuction When You Reach Your Fitness Limits?
You have gone as far as diet and exercise can take you. But dang it, it’s not far enough!
The problem with most fitness goals is that most people are entering this world for the first time. They actually don’t know where a reasonable place to set that bar is. Ten pounds? Twenty pounds? Three inches? Two dress sizes?
If you have gone as far as diet and exercise can reasonably take you, it could be time to get a liposuction procedure to take you the rest of the way. Many consider the cost of liposuction negligible compared to the emotional toll that months of frustration can take.
Because You Have Actually Reached Your Goal
As we mentioned earlier, the main thing that keeps people from reaching their diet and exercise goals is setting unrealistic goals.
Someone trying to do this for the first time has no idea whether or not they can actually lose 20 pounds in 6 months. They work with someone who did it, so they should be able to do it too, right? Wrong.
There are far too many variables hidden within each individual person (height, age, genes, occupation, etc.) to reasonably set steadfast fitness goals, and the tendency is to overshoot ambitiously.
Goals are great, and they are also somewhat required for this journey. However, the important part is not being completely defeated and discouraged if you fall short of the goal. It’s not The Current-You’s fault for not working hard enough. It was The Old You’s fault for not really knowing how to set a fitness goal.
Because it Targets the Most Stubborn Parts of Your Body
Fitness goals literally come in all shapes and sizes. But most of them involve trimming the waist in some capacity. You may want to lose 3 inches to fit into an old pair of jeans.
Liposuction has remained one of the Top 5 most popular plastic surgeries in North America for the last decade or so for one reason: It works. It works really well. It succeeds by targeting and removing the fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to touch.
The average liposuction patient will only lose between 5-7 pounds. However, those are most often the stubborn pounds that are keeping you from fully realizing your goals, or fitting into those old jeans.
Because Attitudes are Changing
A few years ago, liposuction and most other forms of plastic surgery were a bit stigmatized. The average person wasn’t really interested. Now, however, the average person appears to be open to the idea.
The COVID-19 lockdown has been a big factor in this. A record-high number of people are now looking into facelifts because they hate how they look on Zoom calls, while thousands more are looking into liposuction to help them lose the so-called Quarantine 15.
In fact, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) conducted a survey during the pandemic and their data reveals that 49% of respondentswere in favour of getting their first-ever plastic surgery. So, if you’re considering lipo right now, you are far from alone.
