Torso Liposuction and Resolutions

What does liposuction have to do with the New Year?

At the beginning of 2013, the Toronto Star reported that just more than half of Canadians who make New Year’s resolutions keep them for only a month. About 15 percent make it a whole week. And a shade less than 20 percent hold out for just 24 hours.

Here, at the start of 2014, resolutions are being made again from Mississauga to Mississippi, and if history is any indicator, slimming down is chief among them.

Losing weight has previously topped the list of goals here and afar. While exercise and diet are the most obvious and effective ways to improve your figure, changes to your body shape may be hampered by pockets of excess fat that don’t respond well to morning jogging sessions and kale smoothies.

Liposuction is one option for eliminating such holdouts, as it surgically removes fat, allowing for greater definition of body contours.

Remember, this is an aesthetic procedure, so you’ll need to stick it out with any health-specific resolutions you might have made—such as quitting smoking (No. 2 on the list), exercising more (No. 7), and eating better (No. 9), all of which also increase the likelihood of achieving the best results possible in advance of any liposuction of the torso.

The ideal liposuction candidates are healthy, and they hit average numbers on the bathroom scale for their height and age. A personal consultation will help us to chart the proper course and select the best procedure based on your unique body and personal history.

For some reason, flossing more wasn’t on the Star’s list, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t add that one to your set of goals, too. You’ll want a winning smile to go with your sleek figure.
