Liposuction: When Diet and Exercise Doesn’t Work On Those Last 10 Pounds

Getting rid of the last 10 pounds can prove to be a huge challenge. The last ten pounds of fat is something we consider as “Vanity Fat” as it tends to come and go seasonally, during the holidays, and when our diet and exercise routine requires some intense manipulation.

While liposuction may not be for everyone, this procedure proves to be a benefit when shedding those last few pounds. At Rice Cosmetic Surgery, we provide several different types of liposuction procedures, including AquaShape, which is becoming well known for its long-term results.

How does AquaShape Work?

AquaShape is a water-jet assisted liposuction that provides superior body contouring and permanently removes fat cells in the treated areas. The most appealing part of this procedure is that it is a minimally invasive technique that requires no general anaesthesia, which reduces the medical risk and minimizes patient downtime.

During the procedure, the body-jet® liposuction device gently flushes the fat from your body. The fat is removed by a pulsating spray of water that dislodges and loosens the fat cells. The water and fat cells are simultaneously suctioned back out together and the cells remain intact. For most patients, the procedure can be done in the office in just 30 to 45 minutes.

Liposuction Fat as Natural Filler

The advantageous part of the AquaShape process is that the fat can be immediately re-injected into the face, hands, breasts or buttocks to restore youthful contours.

Considering Liposuction for Those Last 10 Pounds

Aquashape can be a huge benefit to those wishing to rid of stubborn fat. Keep in mind that liposuction is not a method for weight loss, as diet and exercise are always recommended to maintain that svelte new look you want to acquire. Aquashape is a great option to get to that final body shape you’re looking for that just doesn’t seem to happen.

However, if you have religiously stuck to your diet and exercise regime, there may be stubborn areas of fat that don’t want to seem to go away. For men, this tends to be the love handles and for women the inner and outer thighs.

The answer to final body contouring for looking great may be with liposuction. At Rice Cosmetic Surgery, we provide several different types of liposuction procedures, including AquaShape, which is becoming well known for its long-term results.
