Facts and myths about liposuction

When it comes to ways and treatments to remove excess fat from the body, it is liposuction that is treated as one of the quickest and the easiest ways to do it. Although it is true that the procedure does help a great deal in removing excess body fat from various areas of the body, but you should not treat it as a quick fix to your obesity problem. There are not just one or two but quite a few myths surrounding liposuction that are floating around in the streets of Sydney and other places of the world these days. And it is these myths that lead to misunderstandings and confusions as many people find it hard to understand what this procedure is all about and what it can really do to get the results.

One of the facts that you must know about this fat removal procedure is that liposculpture is not suitable for every person. In a lot of cases, doctors find that a person intending to go for this procedure is not fit for it but might be sometime in the near future. They key here is to learn the facts and distinguish between facts and fiction as it will then help you determine whether the procedure is right for you or not.

When it comes to myths about liposuction, what can be called as the most prevalent one is that liposuction has been specifically designed as a weight loss treatment. The fact is that if you are going for the procedure with the belief that it will help you shed some kilos from your body, then you are heading for a big disappointment as this is not a weight loss tool. Liposuction can be at best treated as a body contouring or body reshaping procedure. The main objective of the procedure is to help a person get rid of those fatty patches from the body which he or she is finding hard to get rid of through workout or diet programs. However, if your main goal is to lose weight then you will have to go for bariatric surgery or a change in your diet and routine activities to get the desired results.

Another prevalent myths surrounding liposuction is that cellulite can be treated with liposuction. But the fact of the matter is that it does not remove cellulite. It can only make it less visible than what it was before the treatment.

Old Lasers vs Fraxel Lasers

The high tech lasers have long been used for the purpose of the treatment of a variety of skin related problems. And their usage is not new or recent. The laser assisted machines have quickly gone on to gain the reputation of being one of the most effective therapies to treat certain skin related complications, if not all. Although there was a time when laser based treatments proved to be not only painful but also time consuming. Moreover, the recovery period of such treatments was quite long. It was because of these reasons that not many people used to opt for it. However, the entire scenario changed after 2003 when fraxel lasers were introduced in the market for the very first time. And the highlighting feature of this treatment is the fact that it is one of the gentlest cosmetic laser treatments ever to be introduced in the history of human kind. These lasers are not only gentle and safe but prove to be the perfect solution for blemish free skin that requires almost zero downtime.

As far as the underlying principle of most of the skin resurfacing laser based treatments is concerned, there does not exist much of a difference. They work on the principle of causing intentional damage to the skin in order to trigger its natural healing mechanism so that one can get absolutely spotless and flawless skin, that too in the shortest possible time without facing any sort of pain or discomfort both during and after the treatment. 

One of the fundamental differences between older lasers and fraxel lasers is that older lasers tend to cause a significant damage to the skin in order to achieve the desired results. Older lasers used one solid laser beam which inflicted quite a bit of damage to the skin. The highly advanced fraxel lasers being used in certain skin care clinics in Sydney, on the other hand, utilize several microscopic laser beams which is hugely in contrast to the one solid laser beam of older laser machines. So instead of getting the feeling of being hit but a huge rod or something, fraxel lasers prove to be very gentle on the skin of the patients. The beams used in this high tech machine are so microscopic or ultrathin that the patient undergoing the treatment does not feel it at all. And the best part is that the results are similar to the ones that of older laser machines.

An advanced body shaping treatment called Cool Sculpting

Do you happen to one of those individuals who start their day by complaining how much fat they have become, on a regular basis? Although it is true that every single human craves for super glamorous looks and well toned body, not everyone is willing to put the same amount of efforts which are required to get the desired results. However, there are a lot of people who do invest quite a bit of time on workouts and follow a healthy diet chart, but sometimes even those things do not provide the desired results. It is for these people that an advanced treatment called cool sculpting is proving to be such a blessing in disguise. Of course, there are not any shortcuts to a well toned and healthy body, but these high tech machines can really help you boost up the entire process and assist you in achieving the results in quick time.

So what exactly is cool sculpting?

It is a recent and pretty unique treatment that follows a rather different approach to solve the excess fat related problem, which a lot of people face these days across the globe. In this treatment, a machine called chiller is used for the purpose of freezing of fat cells, which in turn results in their destruction on a permanent basis. The treatment is designed and developed in such a manner that it achieves the results by breaking down the fat cells without causing any sort of harm to the surrounding cells and organs. Unlike some of the other fat reduction treatment such as lipsuction, cool sculpting does not involve any sort of sucking of fat but instead the destruction of fat cells. These dead cells are then metabolized by the body in a safe and secure manner, without causing any sort of side effects which are associated with other fat reduction treatments on offer these days.

Cool sculpting is a very safe and painless procedure, and does not require the use of anesthesia or puncturing of the skin in any manner whatsoever. You will not be required to wear any of the so called pain management garments post the treatment either. Although it should not be treated as an alternate to liposuction, it can provide you with excellent results and help you get rid of the pooches that have gone on to become a cause of concern for you for quite some time.
