EXERCISING IS SYNERGISTIC WITH SLIMLIPO
According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and Rueters, a new study has revealed the importance of exercise following SlimLipo or other Liposuction procedures. The Brazilian study followed 36 women over a four month period after a liposuction procedure. According to the study, all of the women still had flat bellies, but the ones that did not exercise had an increase of visceral (abdominal cavity) fat. Fat does not automatically accumulate elsewhere after liposuction but if weight gain occurs due to poor life style habits, the fat tends to accumulate in other or deeper locations.
Visceral fat is the fat that "exists deep within the abdominal cavity. It has been linked to metabolic disturbances and an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. In women, it is also associated with breast cancer and the need for gallbladder surgery," according to ASAPS. What is significantly different about SlimLipo versus other techniques of liposuction is that skin tightening continues for up to 12 months. Therefore, loss of visceral fat through weight loss is synergistic with SlimLipo. However, weight loss after traditional liposuction or a “tummy tuck” may result in looser skin.
Because of this prolonged skin tightening phenomenon after SlimLipo,Dr. Lewis Obi always recommends that a healthy diet and exercise routine be followed within one week after his technique of Laser Lipolysis.
Although SlimLipo is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can be immensely beneficial for individuals in good health that seek to remove unwanted fat and sculpt problematic body areas. SlimLipo is a cutting-edge alternative to traditional liposuction and can be performed without general anesthesia and offers more skin tightening than traditional liposuction techniques. Dr. Lewis Obi was the first plastic surgeon in North Florida to offer this innovative procedure and has operated on over 430 patients in 3000 anatomic zones with SlimLipo.
