Want to shape up quickly and wonder whether getting liposuction for weight loss is a good idea? Well, the quick answer is yes... and NO. Read on to find out why.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a real surgical operation, not just a procedure. It can have rare but life-threatening complications that should never be overlooked. It is not appropriate to expose an overweight person to these risks trying to lose weight this way. Liposuction should be better used for contouring after weight loss has occurred.
Liposuction removes excess fat from the body surgically. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, liposuction can be performed on the following areas of the body: buttocks, breasts, neck, back, stomach, face, calves, upper arms, knees, thighs, back and love handles. To maintain fat loss from surgery, the patient must maintain a healthy diet along with an exercise regime. The procedure poses serious potential side effects.
Is it a Weight Loss Procedure?
One of the common misconceptions about liposuction is that it is a weight loss procedure. However, the fact is that liposuction is not designed as a weight loss procedure, but it is meant to reduce excess fats in specific pockets of the body. It enhances contours and body balance and proportion, but may not reduce weight in any significant way. A plastic surgeon may recommend other surgeries that are specifically designed for weight loss, while liposuction may be used as an add-on surgery in such cases later on to improve contours.
Liposuction for Weight Loss is a NO-NO
Plus, they’ll tell you that as a good candidate for liposuction you must:
- not have more than 20-40 pounds over your ideal weight
- be physically active and eat healthy
- be in good health
In fact, if you have a medical condition (e.g. cardiovascular disorder, diabetes, kidney, liver or autoimmune disorder, and others) you shouldn’t consider liposuction at all. No plastic surgeon will do lipo on you.
Why? Because the risks are huge.
Actually, you must go through a comprehensive medical evaluation to make sure you’re a good candidate for liposuction before being given the OK to go through this risky procedure.
Even a body sculpting specialist performing the much simpler lipo without surgery in a spa will ask you to disclose your medical history and sign a form stating that you are in good health, not suffering from any significant disorder.
Lastly, you must be aware of the serious risks of liposuction:
- Horrible side effects (allergy, blood pressure problems, etc.) from the anesthetic or medication
- Sagging skin from having too much fat suctioned
- Having your muscle tissue or even vital organs perforated (the risk is higher if the surgeon is not properly trained and well-experienced)
- Post-liposuction infection or blood clots, which could circulate through your body causing major complications
- Permanent lumps, unsightly scarring, or even disfigurement
Why Green Coffee is Safe?
Green coffee refers coffee beans that haven’t been roasted yet. On being roasted, the coffee beans lose chlorogenic acid that is present it. Chlorogenic acid helps the body in handling blood sugar and metabolism. Green coffee beans are not roasted and that is why have much higher levels of chlorogenic acid that helps burn fat and lowers blood pressure. You can either brew the coffee and drink it up or take it in the form of a capsule.
According to studies consuming green coffee, every day can help the body in losing lots of weight in a period of 12 weeks.
- Green coffee works as a catalyst in the oxidation of fat.
- It helps the release of fatty acids.
- It improves metabolism.
- It stimulates the absorption of fat in the liver.
