Surgery to Lose Weight
Many of us find that however hard we exercise, however good our diet, regardless of lifestyle, there are pockets of localised fat continue to be a cause for concern.
The body actually does this intentionally, holding on to some fat reserves that no diet seems to shift; even though we would rather it didn’t.
The fat can be found in different areas depending on the individual, but the problem is essentially the same. You can eat better, you can exercise, but the fat will likely stay in this one spot.
This problem affects even those who are very healthy, with a perfect body mass index, especially as we age.
The solution is often specialist surgery to remove the fat from the problem area or areas.
With leading surgeons, there actually is not just one treatment option, but what unites the options is that they can remove localised fat in a way that is safe and produces profound change.
Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
It should be noted that the weight loss surgery options provided by a cosmetic surgeon are not for medically needed weight loss, they are not a solution to severe obesity.
Rather than being bariatric surgery for the morbidly obese – medical procedures such as a gastric banding or gastric bypass surgery – these are cosmetic surgery procedures that are for those who are on or close to their ideal weight, but have pockets of hard-to-shift fat.
For these patients, their main motivation to lose weight is aesthetic.
The fat may be on the stomach, or the thighs, or the arms, or elsewhere. In all cases, it can be somewhat unsightly, certainly, appearance is improved with it gone.
Benefits can also extend to a person’s state of mind.
Confidence and Appearance
When we have concerns about our appearance, this can reduce our confidence, our self-esteem can be impacted.
Treatment can restore confidence, this impacting all areas of life – work, friendships, time spent with family, relationships.
This can be one of the truly wonderful things to see – a patient who was lacking confidence becoming the best version of themselves.
Motivation and Commitment
Addressing pockets of fat can also boost motivation.
It can be hard to stay motivated in life, to eat well and exercise, or to diet,Â when, however hard we try, this fat remains.
Once it is gone, it is easier to take the new life style steps that retain this improved, trimmer figure.
Areas for Weight Loss Treatment
Suitability for any weight loss treatment would always be discussed at a detailed consultation.
Broadly speaking, the following can be treated for most patients, though this list is not exhaustive.
- tummy / stomach / abdomen
- thighs (saddlebags)
- bra rolls
- chin (double chin)
- overly developed male breasts
Weight Loss Surgical Procedures
Your individual needs will be taken into account at an initial consultation, Anca Breahna also using the information from your full medical history to provide advice on the best treatments.
Liposuction, also known as lipo, is hugely popular.
With liposuction, a cannula is inserted into the skin through small cuts and a device is attached which then sucks out the fat.
This surgery is performed under general anaesthetic in hospital, and used on many areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks etc.
Liposuction will usually require an overnight stay in the wonderful Chester Nuffield Hospital, though for smaller treatment areas it can be performed as a hospital day case.
After liposuction, there is a recovery period, with the patient needing to take it easy for a while, including time off work. However, it is worth it to get that wonderful new figure.
The tummy tuck sees fat removed as well as skin tightened in the stomach/ abdominal region, the belly button is also often moved to ensure the final result is as desirable as possible.
With treatments such as tummy tucks, there are degrees to how much fat the surgery removes, how extensive the treatment is. This depends on the individual patient, a mini tummy tuck might just refine appearance post pregnancy.
An extended abdominoplasty is for when there is a significant amount of fat. With this option, the hips and lower back might also be enhanced through surgery, this having a truly profound impact on appearance.
The Mummy Makeover, so called because it is hugely popular among Mums who fairly recently gave birth, is a wonderful option that removes unwanted fat but then uses this to help augment the breasts.
Two concerns are treated at once – that there are pockets of fat post pregnancy and that the breasts have been negatively impacted.
The fat can be removed through a grafting procedure and then used to help redefine the breasts, often this with implants too.
One procedure, two issues rectified, a whole new you.
