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.

Body Contouring Treatments That Can Remove Fat And Tighten Skin

If you want your body to be shapely, but it won't cooperate no matter how much you diet or work out, talk to a cosmetic physician about body contouring. Contouring your body is a combination of removing fat pockets and tightening your skin. There are surgical and non-surgical options to consider. Here's a look at procedures you may want to discuss with your doctor.

Fat Removal Procedures 

The right treatment for fat removal may depend on how much fat you need to have removed. Liposuction is a good option for removing fat around your hips, thighs, abdomen, and back. One nice perk of liposuction is your doctor might use some of the fat removed to give you curves elsewhere on your body by doing a fat transfer.

Another fat removal procedure is laser lipolysis. This procedure doesn't involve surgery. Instead, the procedure heats up fat cells to destroy them. You don't get instant results with this procedure. Instead, the cells die slowly and are absorbed by your body. As a plus, the laser treatment helps tighten skin so it won't be loose once the fat is gone.

Laser-assisted liposuction is another body contouring treatment to consider. This involves having an incision to insert a small laser under your skin. The heat from the laser liquefies fat cells so they can be suctioned out. This gives quicker results than laser lipolysis, and it is much easier to recover from than traditional liposuction.

Cold treatments can also remove body fat in localized areas. This is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. The full results take time to see since the fat cells are absorbed by your body over time. These treatments are easy to undergo and there is no recovery time needed.

Skin-Tightening Procedures

If you have a lot of loose skin, your doctor might recommend surgical removal. However, radiofrequency treatments might help if you have mild to moderate loose or saggy skin. These treatments apply heat to deeper layers under your skin to cause collagen to contract and multiply. This causes skin tightening in the area that gets tighter as time goes by.

You may need multiple radiofrequency treatments. Your doctor might even recommend ultrasound treatments instead for body contouring. Ultrasound also works by heating up the tissues under your skin.

Your doctor evaluates your skin and determines what treatment will work best for you. Plus, they'll consider your weight. Your doctor will probably want you to be close to an ideal weight range so you'll get the best results from whatever treatment you decide to take.
