Can diet/exercise be an alternative to liposuction surgery?
A common misconception about liposuction is that the same results could be achieved through traditional weight loss methods of diet and exercise. Another notion that prevails is that one need not follow their diet and exercise routines once undergone a Liposuction. Moreover, people undergoing Liposuction and body contouring surgeries are bullied and termed as "lazy" in society.
But is this the case?
Scientifically, No. The goals of body contouring procedures, Tummy tuck, and procedures like liposuction are entirely different than the traditional weight loss methods as well as diet.
Exercise and Diet routines
Exercise and a healthy diet will help you achieve a "healthy" body. Protein, carbohydrates, fats, and other nutrients present in our foods help our body function efficiently. However, uncontrollable amounts of fat in our body is considered unhealthy. It may get reflected in the form of bulges, generally, in the upper arms, chin, lower abdomen, etc. Eating healthy and sticking to exercises are both excellent methods of burning visceral fat, which is most commonly associated with serious health problems.
The other type of fat, subcutaneous fat, is resistant to diet and exercise. Love handles, stomach rolls, and bulges are common examples. To start with, Liposuction is meant to help to get rid of stubborn fat deposits on the upper arm, chin, neck, hips and torso. Liposuction helps in removing fat from unpleasing bulges by slimming them down. Hence, it is not a weight-loss technique but is used to provide a final contour to your already healthy body. Liposuction is a good choice for all those people who are healthy and fit but struggle with some unpleasing bulges that resist going away. Liposuction is not a way to get fit and healthy.
To conclude, exercise and liposuction fulfill entirely two different goals. Diet and exercise hold their value and Liposuction is just meant to complement that. Liposuction is meant to enhance the already healthy and fit body.
