Obesity is a considerable problem around the world. Some countries, such as the United States, have even more obese people than ever before. The reason for this is a combination of poor diet choices, and a lack of exercise. With technology being as advanced as it is today, there are many people who sit behind desks all day working on computers, therefore contributing significantly to the obesity epidemic.
It may be hard to believe but their are body contouring treatments out there now which are meant to remove excess body fat in specific areas, such as Smart Lipo, Theramacool, and Cool Lipo, to name just a few. Of recent, there has been an influx of body contouring options on the market which tout being able to remove unwanted fat in areas such as the abs, hips, thighs, backs of the arms, chin areas, and more. The effectiveness rates for these procedures varies for each patient and certain depends on the individual’s propensity to gain weight and keep it on in specific areas. Genetics are to thank for this. However, for people who only have a few extra pounds to lose, there are various cosmetic procedures that are available. Prior to treatment, it is important to have a basic understanding of how fat accumulates to know if Smart Lipo will work for you.
People who eat foods that are high in fat end up allowing the fat molecules that do not end up being digested to migrate to other areas of the body. Some people have a genetic predisposition as to where they store fat. However, for both men and women, a common fat storing area is the torso. Once the fat is stored in these areas, it can be very hard to get rid of. Fitness and diet changes can really help and an active attention to nutrition is key to maintaining a healthy body. However, over time patients may become impatient and in cases where repeated weight loss attempts prove extra challenging, a little nudge in the right direction is something that some individuals feel comfortable pursuing. Genetics and your body’s unique nature should be understood to get an idea of how and where fat deposits on your body.
Smart Lipo is a procedure that involves removing fat layers with a special machine which melts down fat with laser technology. Once the fat has been liquefied in that area, the area is smoothed out and contoured for life unless excess weight gain occurs in the future. People who are significantly overweight will not be considered good candidates for Smart Lipo. Rather, it will be suggested that the prospective patient take a year to eat healthy and exercise. Obesity is not solved by using body contouring tools and is best discussed with a physician who specializes in treating obese individuals and getting them back toward a healthier body weight.
