where to start with cosmetic procedures

Cosmetic procedures come in many forms. You can have some procedures done to shape your body or others to remove the damage of time to your face and neck. So, how do you decide which cosmetic procedures you want to have done? This is something that I struggled with for several years before I took the first step of improving my appearance through cosmetic surgery and procedures. I created this blog with the sole purpose of helping others struggling with the decisions that come with having cosmetic procedures performed find the solutions that will best suit their personal needs and desires.

Medical Spa Treatments That Shape And Sculpt Your Body After Weight Loss

If you're trying to get your body back in shape after losing weight, you may need more aggressive treatments than you can get at a beauty spa or through exercise at the gym. While exercise and skin treatments are helpful, you may need medical spa services when you have sagging skin or pockets of fat that won't go away. Here's how medical spa treatments can help sculpt your body and reduce sagging skin after weight loss. 

Remove Fat Pockets

If you have fat that won't go away on your hips or abdomen, your cosmetic doctor might recommend liposuction. Liposuction is still a popular method of spot fat removal that can reshape your body. Your doctor might use traditional liposuction or laser-assisted liposuction.

When using the laser, the doctor inserts the laser under your skin and targets fat cells with heat. The cell walls rupture and the liquid fat is suctioned out. This results in an immediate change in your appearance, and you'll also experience gradual changes since the heat from the laser tightens skin to give you a sculpted look.

Heat can also be applied to fat pockets during a radiofrequency (RF) treatment. The heat destroys fat without harming any other tissues. RF treatments can also cause tightening of the skin so you're not left with loose skin after the fat removal.

Another fat removal treatment you can get at a medical spa is treatments that cool or freeze your fat. These treatments are applied through your skin, and the temperatures are cold enough to destroy fat cells, but not cold enough to harm other types of tissue. The results from this type of fat removal come gradually as your body removes the dead fat cells.

Tighten Loose Skin

Your doctor evaluates your skin to determine how badly it's sagging and how much loose skin there is. You may have skin hanging under your arms, on your belly, and from your legs. If the sagging isn't too bad, the doctor might try heat treatments that heat up the tissues to contract skin and trigger collagen to tighten your skin over time.

When you have a lot of sagging skin, the solution may be surgery instead. Your doctor might do an arm lift, tummy tuck, or leg lift depending on where you have the most sagging skin. Surgery is the quick way to eliminate excess skin that affects your body shape and that causes you constant discomfort.

A medical spa can provide a number of different services that help you feel better about your appearance so you can feel comfortable about showing off your new body after weight loss.
