Pregnancy can be one of the toughest times in a woman’s life. But once the baby is safely delivered, the next big challenge is to shed the pregnancy pounds.
Some women may attest to the fact that labor was less of an ordeal than getting rid of the extra weight. Conceiving, carrying and birthing a child are considered the most demanding duties a female is naturally required to perform. But the pressure to lose weight and look fit convinces you to tone your body by hook or by crook!
The expectation to look flawless with an hourglass figure after having one or more kids is indeed an unrealistic one. Body shaming can worsen post-partum depression or force mothers to have a negative view of themselves. Even though there’s no one ideal when it comes to body types, women can still strive to achieve their fitness goals through body contouring.
Body Contouring Vs Weight Loss
Weight loss is not a natural outcome of a fitness-oriented lifestyle, in most cases. Women, especially new and old mothers, seek refuge from body shaming in whatever fitness program guarantees quick results.
You can have unrealistic expectations from a new gym routine and be disappointed in not seeing a flat belly or reduced waist in a span of days. If you’re looking for immediate results from the get-go, weight loss through workout is not the right route to take to get your ideal body.
Body contouring can guarantee results right from the start because it’s not a long-term journey of burning fat through exercise. However, it’s often believed that a surgery can take away all the unwanted fat from your body. Even though the results are quick, they may still be far from ideal if your pre-op bodyweight was far from your goals. It serves best when you’re near your fitness goals and just need some extra help getting rid of fat from certain parts.
Body contouring procedures perform complete and irreversible elimination of fat cells in the body which can never regenerate. It allows you to sculpt your body the way you desire by removing fat cells from areas where stubborn bulges bother you the most. However, this process is starkly different to conventional weight loss techniques because you’re actually losing fat cells, not extra pounds.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure for body contouring that can only help tone your body but not achieve drastic changes. You can only remove a limited number of fat cells from the body at a time so the process selectively contours areas of the body.
An incision is made in the target area and a cannula is inserted, which removes fat cells from within. Even though the results are transformative, it does come with drawbacks that accompany an invasive procedure. A lengthy recovery period and financial costs are a few.
If you’re aiming for extreme weight loss and can’t follow strict guidelines during the post-op period, liposuction is not for you. It can only make you look thinner but not the thinnest possible!
