5 Signs It's Time for Liposuction By on April 23, 2016

A woman's midriffLiposuction is a form of cosmetic fat reduction surgery. While it's not intended for weight loss, liposuction is ideal for extracting unwanted pockets of body fat, especially in problem areas such as the love handles, the lower abdominal area, the thighs, the upper arms, and the buttocks. Thanks to liposuction, you can have a much slimmer, trimmer, and more athletic frame.

There are countless reasons to undergoing liposuction, but these five are pretty common with Dr. Gregory T. Mesna's patients. He's helped countless people in and around Minneapolis with advanced fat reduction and body sculpting procedures.

Sign #1: You Have Unwanted Body Fat

Many people have just a handful of flab or body fat that they wish they could get rid of. Liposuction allows you to target that specific part of the body that's been giving you trouble without any hassle.

Sign #2: Exercise Isn't Burning That Last Bit of Fat

Sometimes that last bit of body fat just won't respond to exercise. You can do all the cardio and core training and crunches you want, but the fat won't go away. Here's the thing: spot reduction just does not work. While you may be in stellar health, that last bit of fat may just stay put. That's when liposuction is your best option.

Sign #3: A Healthy Diet Isn't Working Either

We mentioned how spot reduction doesn't work, and that can apply to your diet as well. Even if you eat lean and focus on fruits and vegetables, there is a chance that the last bit of fat you're trying to lose just won't go away. Many genetic and metabolic factors are at play, so it can be frustrating to eat right but still have some unwanted fat. Again, liposuction might be your ideal solution in these cases.

Sign #4: You Want to Boost Your Self-Confidence

Having a slimmer body frame can do a lot for your self-esteem. If you have a few pounds that you simply cannot shed, it may be helpful to your self-confidence to undergo liposuction. Even just a little bit of liposuction in targeted areas can make a major cosmetic difference, which translates into greater confidence.

Sign #5: You Want to Dress to Impress

Sometimes you've got an old wardrobe you want to wear again, or you're rather shed a size or two to purchase a whole new set of clothes. When exercise and a healthy diet aren't helping you out in the fat reduction department, liposuction might be your way of getting a better overall appearance.
