Did you make a New Year’s resolution to get back into shape? Many men and women want to look their very best for 2022. For some people, their goal may be to fit into a wedding dress or suit, while others may want to improve their overall health. However, sticking to your goals through January and beyond can often be a difficult journey. If you want a bit of help in sticking to your plans, there is an unexpected ally: plastic surgery.
Our Lexington and Louisville, KY, patients love to use body contouring treatments to remove unwanted fat and tone sagging skin. Once they see their dramatic results, they’re usually motivated to maintain their new, slimmer shape for years to come.
If you want to jumpstart your New Year’s goals, a customized plastic surgery procedure may be a great choice. Some of the most popular options for giving your body a finishing touch include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and more.
Is It Easier To Lose Weight After Plastic Surgery?
Everyone needs a bit of encouragement when it comes to pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Plastic surgery can help motivate people to eat better and exercise more—both before and after the procedure. While plastic surgery shouldn’t be used as a weight loss tool, it can define and refine your existing weight loss efforts.
Loose skin and certain fat deposits often can’t be removed without outside help. Plastic surgery is a great option for people who are working toward being fit and healthy but cannot achieve the look they want on their own. If genetics and other factors are holding back your progress, surgical methods can help you break through and encourage you to eat right and stay active.
Excess Tissue and Exercise
Strenuous workouts can be both physically and mentally uncomfortable. And if you’re trying to exercise more in 2022, you may find that fat rolls and loose skin further hinder your workouts. Excess tissue painfully rubs against other skin and can trap sweat and grime. Many people also feel self-conscious about exercising at the gym if they have unwanted tissue or fat rolls.
Our plastic surgery patients often say that surgery was the final key to boosting their self-confidence. Removing those rolls and bulges makes exercise more comfortable and helps you show off all your hard work and newly toned body. Our patient’s before and after pictures below show what a difference plastic surgery and a healthy lifestyle can make:

That self-assuredness can also translate into other areas of your life, allowing you to feel a sense of accomplishment as you chase other goals.
Procedures To Consider
Many body contouring procedures on the market can help your aesthetic dreams come true. If you want to tone and define different areas of your body, some of the following procedures may be a good fit.
Whether you’ve had children or lost a lot of weight, major body changes affect your midsection. If you struggle with stretched skin, unwanted belly fat, or a permanent belly bulge, tummy tuck surgery can help. This procedure creates a firm, flat belly by removing saggy skin and stubborn fat deposits. The end result leaves you with a trim, sculpted belly—and you can wear form-fitting shirts or low-rise pants without worry.
Healthy lifestyle choices aren’t always enough to reduce fat deposits in common trouble spots on the body. Bulges can build up around the flanks, thighs, or upper arms, and they’re frustratingly difficult to eliminate. Liposuction is the ideal procedure for targeting specific areas of unwanted fat and suctioning the fat cells out of the body. Cells removed during treatment will not grow back, and you can enjoy a slim, toned look for years to come as long as you maintain healthy habits. Here’s another example of the changes that liposuction can create:

If you want to address multiple problem areas at once, there is no procedure more powerful than a mommy makeover. This suite of surgeries allows women to reclaim their bodies after major changes like pregnancy or significant weight loss. A mommy makeover is a combination of surgeries such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, and more. It combines breast enhancement with body contouring options to restore your body to its best appearance.
Don’t let another year pass by without achieving your aesthetic goals.
