Few of us maintain perfect figures, especially as we enter our 30s, 40s and beyond. Childbirth, working at a desk, and long hours at the office take their toll.
If you were in the shape of your life in your early 20s, there's a good chance that by the time you reach your 40s, you'll have a harder time getting your body to respond to diet and exercise like it used to.
When you were 20, dropping 10 pounds was probably a cinch. If you are a woman in her late 30s, dropping 10 pounds can be a painstaking process, or require a lot more discipline than it used to!
We're not leaving men out, they just tend to have an easier time losing weight due to the fact that they have more muscle mass than women, which is like a furnace that burns calories and fat.
When we discuss stubborn fat, we can't help but mention the surgical solution: liposuction. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that eliminates unwanted fat that's failed to respond to diet and exercise.
Liposuction: One of the Most Popular Procedure in 2014
There are a lot of people struggling with stubborn fat, and that is supported by the fact that liposuction was one of the most popular surgical procedure in 2014 with a total of 211,000 procedures performed, up 5% from 2013, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
As a Board-Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky performs liposuction with the goal of taking a patient's body, and creating an aesthetically balanced contour by eliminating unwanted fat stores.
Dr. Gorodisky looks at the patient's overall contour. With an artist's eye, he looks to see if one area needs more attention. Sometimes he will fill a spot by removing fat from a different area, thereby creating an ideal balance in the patient's form.
One appealing aspect about liposuction is that it's been around for many years, and it's proven to deliver remarkable results.
The techniques and devices for liposuction have improved over the years; with the cannulas being smaller, Dr. Gorodisky does a lot more sculpting in addition to removing excess fat.
As a Board-Certified plastic surgeon by the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery who takes pride in his work, Dr. Gorodisky sculpts and defines areas that bother patients to yield the desired results, thereby creating a dramatic effect.
While there are many surgical tools and instruments that help us perform liposuction, the most important factor is the plastic surgeon's aesthetic abilities, and how he or she appreciates the human form and uses their knowledge and skills to produce the ideal result. That is the "art" of liposuction.
