Body-contouring procedures, whether surgical or minimally invasive, are rapidly changing in the cosmetic surgery industry. Newer techniques are introduced each year to help men and women alike in restoring their natural body contours. Despite the popularity of body-contouring treatments such as liposuction and the tummy tuck, there are persistent myths about the procedures.
- Body-contouring treatments will help you lose weight. There is no truth to this. In fact, body-contouring procedures such as liposuction will yield greater outcomes when the patient is at or close to his or her ideal body weight. Generally, individuals who are looking into having body-contouring treatments are encouraged to lose excess weight first before scheduling the procedure.
- Body-contouring procedures like liposuction will avoid future weight gains. Fat does not return to the treated areas in liposuction, but non-treated areas can store fat leading to weight gain just as before. With that in mind, your surgery should be accompanied by healthy changes in lifestyle and diet for the long haul.
- Non-surgical body-contouring procedures are not effective at all. Although there may be variations in the way a procedure is done, this doesn’t necessarily mean that non-surgical treatments are ineffective. A certain procedure, whether surgical or not, has to undergo years of study before it gets approved by the FDA for public use.
