Can you get siimilar results of liposuction through diet and exercise if you work hard enough?

Can you get siimilar results of liposuction through diet and exercise if you work hard enough?

Depends on the goal!: Liposuction is the only modality that can change shape. Diet and exercise only help with size. Now, if you like your shape, then weight loss will help you reach your goals. If you have isolated areas that you wish to reduce, then no exercise or diet can achieve "spot reduction" and liposuction is a better choice. Now is it best to be close to your target weight before lipo? Absolutely! ...Read more

I will be going to doctor he has weight loss program he has B12 and liposuction shot also diet exercise people have lost weight from him is it good?

I hope so: If he monitors your progress and counsels you on weight loss with exercise and proper diet as well, it sounds as though it is fine, as witnessed as people losing weight "weight clinics" such as this aren't always about the shots you get, but more about being motivated to lose and do as instructed, especially since your probably paying for it, you want to assure you are getting your monies worth. ...Read more

Is it possible for fat cells in our body to be resistant to diet and exercise or is this just a way of promoting liposuction?

Is it possible for fat cells in our body to be resistant to diet and exercise or is this just a way of promoting liposuction?

Fat cells: Ultimately, fat burning becomes universal in distribution. However, fat cell resistance is real. Fat tissues have less circulation than other tissues and so are less exposed to burning dynamics. Low insulin is essential for adipose burning. And glycogen burning, ie stored starch burning, is first in line. Adipose burning kicks in with low insulin AND depletion of glycogen stores. Difficult! ...Read more

Is body wrap treatment an effective alternative to liposuction? I plan on taking serious steps to lose weight. Exercise and diet have not done much for me. Before considering abdominal liposuction, I am thinking about the body wrap treatment. Is it worth

Body : Body wraps should not be considered a long term treatment of excessive fat. The wraps work by tightening and dehydrating the tissues, and the results are very limited and last less than a day. This result may be considered acceptable for fitting more smoothly into a dress for an evening, but body wrap is not comparable to the results that are achieved with liposuction. Liposuction can reduce the volume of fat deposited in focused areas quite significantly. The results of liposuction are considered permanent, as the removed fat will not grow back. Future weight gain, however, will change your final result, as the remaining fat cells do continue to increase in size with weight gain. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read more

Is tummy tuck or liposuction the only good way to flatten ab area or is it possible to achieve a good cosmetic result through diet and exercise alone?

Is tummy tuck or liposuction the only good way to flatten ab area or is it possible to achieve a good cosmetic result through diet and exercise alone?

Depends: If what you have is a little extra fat but no extra skin or separation in your muscles then diet and exercise is the best way to go. Liposuction is a good option if there are stubborn areas that do not seem to go away even when you are at your ideal body weight but your skin is tight. If your skin and muscles have stretched, a tummy tuck is the only way to repair them. ...Read more

I need help. I tried every diet but didn't work, now i want to choose between gastric band and liposuction. Which one is better and why (pro and cons)?

I need help. I tried every diet but didn't work, now i want to choose between gastric band and liposuction. Which one is better and why (pro and cons)?

Depending on the : amount of weight you want to lose will influence your choice. Liposuction is really designed for patients close to their ideal weight, but can't get off the fatty tissue after diet and exercise. If you have lipo and gain weight the fatty tissue will enlarge in other areas. gastric bypass is for patients with obesity that don't respond to diet and exercise. Hope that helps ...Read more

I had a abdominoplasty surgery(tummy tuck) and some liposuction recently. I would like to keep my shape , what would recommend for my daily diet?

Whole foods: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and 3-4 oz protein with each meal 5 hours apart. ...Read more
