It May Be Time to Ditch the Shapewear

Shapewear has become a common way to manage unwanted bulges and bumps. These are frustrating problems that many people live with, which is exactly why we have various compression garments like Spanx® to help smooth and refine the silhouette. These items allow people to feel better in that little black dress or slim slacks. However, they can also become uncomfortable after a while. If you’ve been relying on shapewear and are ready for a change, now may be your ideal time for liposuction.

How to Know if You’re Ready for Liposuction

Shapewear has lost its appeal.

Shapewear may be a great idea for temporary contouring. Compression can work splendidly for holding in bulges or hiding cellulite that may show in that special outfit. The thing about shapewear, though, is that it only works in certain areas. They happen to be the most common areas, such as the tummy, hips, buttocks, and thighs. As good as shapewear may work for the occasional event or night out, it may not be something you want to wear every day. As you may know, it isn’t exactly easy to squish excess fat into garments that fit tightly!

With liposuction, you wear what you want because your body is always ready. No more wiggling into and out of uncomfortable compression shapewear.

You want something more long-term.

While shapewear can give you the contours you want for a night, liposuction can give you that shape for years. The procedure is performed using a local anesthetic in most cases. To sculpt the body, the surgeon uses a small cannula, a hollow tube attached to a medical device that suctions fat cells into a reservoir. The tube extracts lines of fat cells, and surrounding cells fall into the space to create a smooth, natural result. Fat cells do not grow back so, with a healthy lifestyle, the slimming effects of liposuction can last a very long time.

You want to love the skin you’re in.

Wearing Spanx, you might feel great in the little black dress you wear to that holiday dinner party. When you get home, though, you see something different in the mirror. Shapewear is a lovely illusion for special occasions, but it may not meet your true desire to feel great no matter what you wear. Liposuction does not conceal the problem of extra fatty deposits, it eliminates it! So, no matter what you’re wearing, or if you’re wearing nothing at all, you feel great in your own skin.

We are pleased to perform liposuction for patients in the Hazleton and Pottsville areas. For your consultation, contact an office near you today.
