Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to remove stubborn pockets of body fat and give you the tight, toned look you want. But this isn’t the only way to get rid of stubborn fat in Oklahoma City. If you are struggling with your physique and are wondering if liposuction may be able to help you, consider CoolSculpting®, a truly amazing, non-surgical alternative.
Understanding Body Fat
While the diet industry would have you believe that body fat is evil, it is actually an essential nutrient. Fat is necessary for cardiovascular health, brain function and temperature regulation, just to name a few vital functions dependent upon it. How much body fat we have is a direct result of our diet and exercise habits. Where we store our body fat, however, is genetic. If your mother had a big backside, you may store a lot of your body fat there as well. You can try to whittle it away with diet and exercise, but your body may instead give up body fat you want, such as the fat in your face, thighs or breasts.
While liposuction takes away the fat deposits you do not want, it does so in a harsh, surgical way. Most people in Oklahoma City would like to see results, but they don’t want to go through surgery. Thankfully, CoolSculpting® can provide significant, natural-looking results all while allowing you to hold onto essential fat and maintain a healthy weight.
A Closer Look at CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® works on small fat deposits, so you want to be as fit and lean as possible before the treatment and also be at a stable weight and physique. If you have more than a few pounds to lose, neither liposuction nor CoolSculpting® is not your best option. Focus on doing as much as you can with diet and exercise first.
If you have done all you can with diet and exercise and still have stubborn fat deposits, liposuction may be the first thought that comes to mind. But think again. CoolSculpting® is an effective option, and it may be perfect for you! Make an appointment with us at Longevity in Oklahoma City to see if this body contouring procedure can work for you.
