Surgical or non-surgical?
We are so lucky to live in a world where almost anything is possible – particularly when it comes to our bodies and appearance. Advancements in science mean we know more about our bodies than ever before and with that comes the power to enhance, fix and change them. The cosmetics industry is full of possibilities and there’s more procedures and treatments available today than we could count.
Why Do we want to Change the Way we look?
You may be thinking – why are we all constantly striving to change the way we look? We’ve all seen examples of celebrities who have gone too far with surgery. But what about non-surgical, non-invasive treatments with a natural approach designed to improve your body and make you feel more confident? Let’s take for example fat loss treatments. One size does not fit all and there is no singular approach to losing inches and reducing body fat that works for absolutely everyone. Whilst it should always be a priority and the first point of call, diet and exercise may only take you so far until you feel like you are hitting a wall.
If you are looking to turn to the next option when it comes to fat loss treatments, you may be wondering whether you should go down the surgical or non-surgical route. There are definitely benefits for each and again, it depends on the individual, their lifestyle and the kind of results they desire. If you’re not sure which way to turn, Nu You Aesthetics have created this interactive fat loss map, which explains the surgical and non-surgical options available for each target area, helping people to become aware of the non-invasive alternatives to surgery.
Non Surgical Options
You may not have considered many of the non-surgical options – you may not have even heard of half of them! They are generally much less painful, involve little to no downtime and are of course, much cheaper. They are designed to accelerate and enhance natural fat loss processes within the body to leave subtly contoured, healthy results.
For instance, when you think of fat loss surgery you may think of liposuction. It is a popular option for a quick fix, however it’s expensive, often takes around two weeks to completely recover and leaves quite dramatic results that may result in excess skin. For someone looking for extreme results, this could be ideal.
Compare that to fat freezing – natural and holistic, no recovery time and takes a speedy 45 minutes. With treatments such as this, the body will be naturally working to get rid of dead fat cells for up to 12 weeks after so your body may continue to change as time goes on. It is also worth noting that it may take more than one fat freezing treatment in order to experience the full potential. It may take longer to reach your desired shape than it would with something like liposuction, however it is so important that removing fat is done gradually to avoid loose skin and any complications.
For most treatments, particularly non-surgical and the more minor surgical options, the ideal candidate is someone in good health who is close to their ideal weight but struggling with stubborn fat and looking for subtle body contouring. Fat loss treatments should not be a quick fix or alternative to exercising and maintaining a good diet.
If you are finding it hard to lose weight due to age, the menopause, post-pregnancy or an injury or illness, a fat loss treatment could be perfect for you. Whether you opt for surgery or non-surgery will be personal preference, however Nu You Aesthetics’ fat loss map can help you make the right decision.
