Many women and men find small pockets of fat plaguing them no matter how much they exercise or diet. Several areas of the body, such as the bra line, back fat, arm fat, male breasts, love handles, and others, cannot reach the optimal level of toning through exercise and weight loss alone. In these scenarios, you may find it beneficial to try Smartlipo for the final edge you need to get the body you want.
Exercise and diet, the first step
Smartlipo focuses on removing small areas of stubborn fat and tightening the skin. It works best as a complementary procedure to diet and exercise. There are many different viewpoints on the topic of healthy diets, but the best approach is to keep it simple: reduce caloric intake, focus on plant-based foods, and increase your physical activity. To get rid of the extra fat in hard-to-tone areas, include both cardio and strength training exercises in your workout routine, especially those that target the muscles in the general area you wish to tone.
The armpit area, which causes bra bulge, can be especially difficult to tone, because several muscles combine in that area, including the pecs, lats, triceps, biceps, and deltoids. One simple way to get rid of the bra bulge is to ensure that you are wearing a properly fitting bra, according to You Beauty. When that doesn't work, then it's time for other measures.
Fighting against biology
Women have more body fat than men, which is a simple but sometimes frustrating biological fact. Generally, a healthy woman's body percentage should be between 20 and 24, while for men the range is between 10 and 15. Women need more body fat than men due to childbearing and hormone functions. For most women, this fat is stored mainly in the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Evolution led to female human ancestors storing more fat in these areas to better handle droughts and famine when nursing and during pregnancy. Today, women have many of the same genes without the need for as much fat storage, according to Prevention. This makes it even harder to get rid of this stubborn fat, especially on the hips and thighs.
What you need to know about Smartlipo
When diet and exercise are not enough to counter genetics and rid your body of unwanted fat, Smartlipo can be the ideal solution. Smartlipo targets localized fat in smaller areas of the body. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a minimal recovery period. During the procedure, a small laser passes underneath the skin in the targeted area and breaks apart the fat cells, which in turn tightens the skin. The fat can either be reabsorbed by the body or removed with a small suction cannula. After the procedure, you will have to wear a compression garment for two to four weeks.. Most people can return to work the next day, although the full healing process may take a few weeks, and you may have to avoid exercise for up to two weeks.
Not everyone is a good candidate for Smartlipo. The best results are seen in those who have small areas of localized fat and are interested in simply contouring and tightening specific areas of the body. Smartlipo is an ideal solution for getting the tight, toned body that you are unable to get through exercise alone.
