It’s here again. The summer has gone and the excesses of the summer holidays have left their mark. Sun wrinkled skin and expanded waistlines. As our thoughts turn to the winter revelry and the ‘office do’ is there anything that can help us get back into that Little Black Dress?
One obvious answer is to buy another dress but that wasn’t supposed to be where this article was going and the other obvious answer of don’t ‘let loose’ too much in the summer is a little too late. So as we stare in the mirror at the damage already done where exactly can we turn.
Well lets start with the simple stuff and talk diet. Now we’ve all heard about the cabbage soup diet and the Liz Hurley diet of 6 to 8 raisins per day so lets put them to bed real quick. You really ought to change what you eat on a long term basis rather than just for a few weeks once or twice a year for a particular event. Also research now shows that it is better for your health to be permanently a little overweight than on a constant Yo-Yo diet.
So if you want to loose weight, No Bread, No Rice, No Potatoes, No Pasta, No Flour, No Sugar. Once you have achieved the desired weight then just very little bread, rice, potatoes etc. Could it really be any easier than that?
Now what happens if you discover that you have a shape change that took place over the summer and despite dropping back to the right weight the shape is now all to hell? What is the best body shaper?
Well a recent survey of our patients has once again put VASER Lipo on the top in terms of fat removed AND contours improved.
VASER Lipo is the latest, gentlest and best way of localised fat removal currently available. It can give a small degree of skin tightening too, to deal with the excess laxity caused primarily by the fat loss. It is relatively more invasive than Thermage but the down time is very short and the recovery is very quick. Unlike traditional liposuction where they do the first review at 3 months we can show 85% improvement within 3 weeks. Yes just 3 weeks. It is performed under local anaesthetic in an office procedure and the whole process is very much less traumatic than conventional liposuction.
So when it comes to providing shapelier curves and flattened contours there is still nothing else that can beat it. I now have an extensive collection of excellent before and after photos to show you if you would like to pop in for a chat. A flatter tummy, a perkier ‘butt’, slimmer thighs, better defined knees and calves, all these things are within your grasp with a procedure that is a lot gentler and a lot safer than conventional liposuction and possibly even a little cheaper too!
So next time you stand in front of the mirror and step into your favourite LBD, make sure it fits like a glove with the help of some skilled hands and a little bit of ultrasound “noise”.
