For many women, achieving the coveted hourglass figure is the ultimate fitness goal. Unfortunately, however, getting rid of fat pockets in your midsection is often difficult, as this area is known to be particularly resistant to exercise.
The good news is that liposuction and other body contouring options can help you fine-tune your workout results, so you can finally achieve that hourglass shape. Read on to discover whether liposuction alone or in conjunction with another cosmetic treatment could be the best solution for you.
When Lipo Could Be Right for a Smaller Waist
If your goal is to eliminate a few isolated areas of fat here and there to help you achieve your desired body shape, liposuction could be an excellent option. Lipo works by removing stubborn fat cells that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise alone.
For many people, areas like the belly, hips and thighs are difficult to address through traditional weight loss methods alone. You’ll see the best liposuction results if you are already at or close to your target weight before your treatment.
When to Combine Liposuction with Other Options
Liposuction is frequently combined with abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, if you are looking to address excess skin and/or separated abdominal muscles in addition to stubborn fat. This combination treatment can also help you achieve that hourglass shape.
Some women may also want to include breast implants with their body contouring treatments to enhance their natural curves and even further highlight the coveted hourglass look.
