A finely sculpted figure can be achieved through plastic surgery. Utilizing body sculpting techniques such as liposuction, excess fat deposits can easily be removed, revealing underlying musculature and form to produce a toned and firm appearance throughout the treatment area.
Some body contouring options involve the removal of fat alone, but others will include the removal of excess skin as well. Skin may not shrink following weight loss. This can allow loose and sagging skin to obscure your actual form. The removal of excess skin through body lift or tummy tuck procedures can help improve range of motion, increase clothing options, and create a much more appealing frame.
Are Body Contouring Results Permanent?
Following fat removal with liposuction or body sculpting with a lift or tuck procedure, your body will be closer to the size and shape you desire. Fat and skin do not magically come back after removal, making your results permanent in a sense. However, plastic surgery does not make a person impervious to weight gain, which makes your choices the biggest determining factor in how long your results last.
You can help maintain your body sculpting results by choosing healthy foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, lean proteins, and nutrient dense whole foods. If you struggle with healthy eating, consider working with a nutritionist to develop a plan that works for you.
In addition to healthy eating, getting enough exercise is essential for maintaining a sculpted and toned body. Aim for at least three hours of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise every week and don’t forget weight training and range of motion exercises as well. As with diet, if exercise is not something you excel at, consider working with a professional who can customize a weekly routine for you.
