Liposuction has been around for decades. Long used by Hollywood starlets and trophy wives to keep their bodies slim and trim, its use declined slightly between 2011 and 2012. However, at the same time that people are gradually moving away form liposuction, there is a massive movement towards body sculpting.
Weight loss plans can help you lose weight but they can’t do anything with the skin that is left behind. As weight is gained, the skin stretches to accommodate it. Over the years, skin loses its elasticity. When the weight is lost through stringent dieting or surgeries such as lap-band surgery, that excessive skin simply hangs there. An unattractive reminder of what was lost through so much hard work, many people are choosing body sculpting to have these excessive folds cut away and removed.
In one year the number of people had lower body lifts decreased by 6% from 7,615 to 7,163. However, In 2000 less than 210 people had these procedures done. Men and women who have lower body lifts performed are seeking to have loose skin in their thighs and buttocks removed. The hanging skin typically results from losing a large amount of weight. Once the loose skin is removed, the remaining skin is pulled upward for a tighter and firmer appearance.
Thigh lifts have also gained in popularity since 2000 with the number of procedures at 5,303 vs 8,894 in 2012. However, it decreased from 2011 when 9,761 procedures. Thigh lifts also reshape the lower body by removing excessive amounts of loose skin as well as cleaning away small amounts of fat. A more shapely figure from the waist down results when a thigh lift is done.
The lower body is not the only area that can become riddled with loose skin and unattractive folds that hang and taunt you. The upper arms are another area that benefits greatly from sculpting. Practically unknown procedures in 2000, only 338 of these surgeries were performed nationwide that year. 2012 saw a huge rise in popularity with nearly 15,500 women having this procedure done, a 3% increase from 2011.
The positive and attractive results of body sculpting can be clearly seen on famous celebrities such as Cher, Beyonce, Cameron Diaz and Queen Latifa. Many more celebrities have had these surgeries done, and you can take advantage of this procedure as well.
