Happy New Year! With the start of 2024 comes a renewed chance to take control of your life and improve your happiness! Whether you’re resolving to read more, pay off debt, buy your first home, or improve your appearance, the new year is a fresh page in your life story! How exciting, a new chance to reach new goals. But for some people, some resolutions are more challenging to achieve than others. Especially when you’re fighting gravity- or your genetics. After all, you can work out and eat a healthy, balanced diet and still not lose weight or have the body you desire.
Thankfully, there are solutions to getting the body of your dreams that don’t require futile exercise and restrictive diets, and Dr. Jack Peterson can help!
Picture it. You eat well, exercise, and even do targeted exercises like situps and crunches, you’ve even reached your weight loss goals, but you still can’t seem to lose that stubborn fat deposit on your abdomen. Or maybe you did lose that fat deposit, but you now have loose skin covering what should be a completely flat stomach. What can you do?
There are several permanent solutions for getting a flat stomach to consider. Here’s what you need to know about your options.
Liposuction is a popular procedure that uses a thin needle called a cannula to vacuum fat out of a designated area. Liposuction can be performed on areas with stubborn fat deposits and can remove up to 15 pounds of fat with one treatment. Did you know that liposuction is a permanent solution to fat loss? It’s true! Fat removed via liposuction from a designated area of the body will not grow back, eliminating the need for diets and target training and helping you achieve a streamlined, svelte body without excess effort that may or may not work.
An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck removes excess fat deposits from the abdomen by not just using liposuction but also removing excess skin that covers the abdomen. This skin can be loose from weight loss, age, genetics, or from the liposuction itself. No matter how it got there, a tummy tuck can remove it and help sculpt a smooth, flat stomach!
For those looking for permanent solutions without the commitment of recovery time of both liposuction and abdominoplasty, Dr. Jack Peterson offers the BodyTite system.
BodyTite is a revolutionary treatment that works similarly to abdominoplasty and liposuction but without smaller incisions and a lot less downtime than is required for either of these popular procedures. BodyTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). This procedure melts body fat and provides unparalleled contraction of the skin’s dermis layer and the underlying connective tissue. Complete the vision of your body when you’ve met your goals.
Lower Body Lift
Suppose you’ve already done the hard work of losing weight from your lower body but are still struggling with sagging or excess skin anywhere on your lower body. You may be an excellent candidate for a lower body lift in that case.
A lower body lift can target any area in the lower body that needs a little boost, including the abdomen, buttocks, and even thighs.
As we age, much like any other area of our bodies, the buttocks can sag, droop, or lose volume. For some, the buttocks are not an area that ever had volume, which can cause individuals to be insecure or feel as though their body is off-balance or disproportionate. A traditional buttock lift can help lift the derriere and create a more balanced-looking figure.
For those looking who’s goals include increasing the volume of the buttocks, a procedure that has gained much popularity in recent years is the Brazilian butt lift or BBL. A Brazilian butt lift uses your body fat (removed from elsewhere on the body via liposuction) to fill out the buttocks and create a larger, rounder derriere.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, for those who have goals to reduce the size of their buttocks, liposuction procedures can be customized to remove fat and reshape the derriere.
