EXPERT Q&A

Q: What can I do when the weight just won’t come off despite my best efforts?

What our experts say:

It is reasonable to consider body contouring/liposuction/CoolSculpting if you are unable to achieve the shape you desire with diet and exercise.

Liposuction was invented for those stubborn figure flaws that are resistant to diet and exercise.  No doubt, if you change your entire life, have 100% compliance on what you eat, the exercise you do and the supplements you take, anyone can achieve a better body.  But virtually no one is willing to change everything.  We have to have jobs, commitments to kids and family take up our time.  There is no such thing as perfect compliance with healthy habits.  So Liposuction is a viable option to bridge that gap between concept and reality.

If you have problems with achieving a healthy weight, you may need to consult a physician who specializes in weight loss management to help you to address whatever is blocking you from the healthy body and weight that you are striving for.  Many weight loss programs are available to kick start your weight loss and support your progress. If you have a healthy (for you) weight and lifestyle and you still have figure problems with localized areas of fat that just won’t budge despite diet and exercise, you are an excellent candidate for body sculpting with liposuction to achieve a more balanced and smooth figure.  Many people look to liposuction as a weight loss technique, but is really best used as a sculpting technique to smooth disproportionate areas of fat that cause bulges or an uneven silhouette.   I always ask my patients what weight they would like to be at to be their personal best.  If that weight is really an attempt to get rid of that “last problem area” and my patient  is happy with all of her other body areas, then I will recommend liposuction for that last fat deposit and try to get the patient to stop stressing over her weight!
