Losing weight is something many of us have on our minds. The only question is, what is the best way to do it? The answer is simple enough: diet and exercise. Without consistent exercise and proper eating habits, there is simply no way to healthily loose weight. For some people, though, diet and exercise in itself is not enough. For a variety of reasons (environment, genetics, etc.), people that exercise and diet don’t see the results they want. And even those who do may have stubborn fat deposits or flaps of skin that are infuriating to get rid of.
There is no substitute for diet and exercise; weight loss and a healthy lifestyle depend on it. There are, however, supplemental options you can take to get the body you want — and deserve. To better illustrate how to go about this, here are three medical weight loss solutions to consider:
- Liposuction: Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a medical procedure in which fat deposits are physically evacuated from the body. Liposuction is performed under general, regional, or local anesthesia, and new technology even permits the use of non-invasive laser treatment that requires no anesthesia (lipotherme laser liposuction). It is a popular supplementary weight loss solution.
- hCG Diet: The hCG hormone is known to suppress hunger and increase your body’s burning of fat cells. Under the hCG diet, patients are restricted to 500 calories a day as they ingest the hormone via injections or serum drops. Under the supervision of a doctor, hCG dieters can stand to see rapid weight loss in a matter of days.
- Skin Tightening: Skin tightening cellulite reduction is a procedure that taps into your skin’s natural collagen and elastin fibers to contract loose or stretched skin. Skin tightening isn’t a weight loss procedure per se. It is meant for people who have lost weight but have leftover flaps of skin that haven’t fully contracted.
It should be noted that none of these weight loss and management programs can replace proper diet and exercise. However, medically supervised weight loss programs in addition to them can get you the healthy and trimmed body you want and deserve.
