Making diet and exercise resolutions (and sticking to them) is highly commendable. There can be a dark side to all that healthy living, though. Stubborn fat can stick around certain areas no matter how many spinning classes you take or how much kale you eat. None of us want to hear it, but the sad truth is that it gets harder to lose weight and eliminate fat as we get older. The good news is that liposuction may be able to rescue those New Year’s resolutions.

Consider Combining Lipo with a Tummy Tuck
If you’re dealing with excess skin too, talk to your plastic surgeon about how you might benefit from a tummy tuck combined with liposuction.* Once skin loses laxity and becomes stretched out, as is often the case after weight loss or pregnancy, no amount of exercise or good eating can bring it back. For sagging abdominal skin, surgical body contouring like a tummy tuck is the only effective treatment.*
Liposuction Is Only Part of the Answer
Liposuction is not a way to lose weight, but can target isolated fatty deposits like the love handles or a muffin top.* Yet while liposuction does remove fat cells from the treated areas,* it can’t prevent future weight gain that could compromise your results. Use your liposuction as inspiration to live a healthier lifestyle and keep those resolutions going strong all year.
