Liposuction - How Safe And Effective Is It?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Have you been thinking of having liposuction surgery to remove unwanted fat from various places on your body? Are you certain you’re a candidate for this type of surgery? Many people who decide they want to have liposuction will unfortunately not be candidates due to body type or health conditions, but for those who are candidates the procedure can be a very effective weapon against fat, and when done correctly most patients find they are extremely satisfied with the results.

In liposuction, qualified surgeons remove and reshape fat in the body to give the patient a leaner and firmer appearance. Generally, liposuction is performed on areas where fat tends to accumulate en-masse, including the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Although many claim that liposuction surgery has been around since the 1920s, the procedure wasn’t officially invented and given the name liposuction until the early 1970s. The first surgery of this type was performed in Rome.

Liposuction is a very popular surgery. In fact, just last year the surgical procedure named liposuction was the most common type of surgery performed in the United States. Women are twice as likely to have liposuction as men, and the area most targeted is the upper legs and abdomen. While liposuction is very popular, it must be mentioned that this is a major medical procedure and not something that should be taken lightly. Not everyone is a candidate for liposuction and the procedure has enough risk potential to warrant mention.

Because liposuction is officially a cosmetic and elective surgery, it is often viewed as a very minor type of procedure, when in fact it is a major medical decision with many possible risks. These risks come in three basic types: surgical risk, risk from anesthesia, and post-operative risk. Choosing qualified personnel who comb through your medical history to determine your candidacy is the best way to lower your risk of complications from liposuction surgery. In addition, your ability to be honest about your general health before the procedure and your ability to follow post-operative instructions will reduce the risk of problems.

Before you even consider undergoing liposuction surgery it is recommended that you meet with a doctor to discuss all of your options. Liposuction is not for everyone, and because of the risks involved with the procedure, it should definitely be a decision you weigh very carefully.

Have You Got Zumba Fever?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

I have been hearing a lot of buzz about Zumba and how it is the most effective way to burn up to 1000 calories in one hour. I have never tried Zumba but as a personal trainer, I have my doubts about the 1000 calorie per hour theory. I am not the only personal trainer to express this opinion I know but I do believe there is a bigger picture than just Zumba in isolation.
