Fat: The Good, the Bad, and the Removable

We’ve all been accustomed to believe that perfection is an unattainable goal. Perfection is unique to everyone. Perfection can be redefined. To be happy with oneself is to be in a perfect state. Happiness can come from our personal lives, self-esteem, and yes, even our bodies.

We all have those trouble spots on our bodies that bug us. Most times trouble spots like extra fat can be solved by working out. Sometimes working out just doesn’t work with one’s anatomy. Fat can be a tricky thing for some. Some may attribute stubborn fat to a poor diet and for others, it may just be genetics. Either way, it is a pesky nuisance that takes time and effort to get rid of. To fully grasp the idea of fat, you have to understand fat.

Good Fat vs. Bad Fat

The body needs fat to survive, whether you like it or not. Fat can be beneficial to your body. It can provide a major source of energy, helps absorbs vitamins and minerals, and so much more. Fat is a crucial part of the body and essential to its functionality every day.

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a good fat. Good fat comes from natural foods like vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fish. The purest and most advantageous fats are those that come from unprocessed foods. Good fats help the body retain crucial vitamins and carry out other necessary functions.

Bad fats like trans fats are found in processed foods and increase cholesterol. Trans fats can create inflammation which can lead to serious chronic conditions. A diet heavily founded on processed foods may lead to weight gain.

The body needs the good fat, but can do without the bad fat. Bad fat is the fat we all love to hate. One way to rid your life of unwanted and stubborn fat is through plastic surgery. Surgical procedures are offered to combat fat and its displeasing aspects.

Kill the Stubborn Fat

One sure fire way to get rid of fat is through a liposuction procedure. Liposuction is an effective way to remove fat and achieve an improved contour for your body. Liposuction is a gentle suctioning procedure that removes fat cells from targeted areas on the body. The surgery is aimed to slim the body to create a more toned appearance. Fat can be removed from the abdomen, thighs, back, breasts, chest, arms, and neck.

Liposuction can be done for the whole body through liposculpting or body contouring. Body contouring is all about the manipulation of a liposuction procedure. The body becomes contoured through the skillful hand of your doctor. The body can be shaped to become more muscular, defined, or lean. The areas body contouring focuses on are the:

  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Buttock
  • Thighs

Body contouring helps patients get rid of fat and reshape their bodies. Another procedure that is liposuction and body contouring based is the tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure is done to contour the abdominal area. Body lifts also involve liposuction to remove fat to slim down appearance. Other targeted areas like the arms or thighs can be fixed with liposuction and lift procedures.

Bad Fat Isn’t So Bad

Life is all about looking to the bright side of things. We’ve discussed how fat can be good or evil and how fat can be removed, but what about if we kept the fat and used it in our favor? Now there is the bright side. Fat can be used to one’s advantage through a few surgical procedures.

One such procedure is breast augmentation with fat transfer. This procedure uses the fat taken from an area on one’s body and transfers it to the breasts. The fat is taken from any area on the body that harbors a sufficient amount of fat. The fat is taken through a liposuction procedure and injected into the breasts. Breasts become fuller in shape through this breast augmentation.

Another procedure that uses the “bad” fat for good is buttock augmentation or popularly referred to as the Brazilian butt lift. Again, using liposuction from the targeted area it uses fat that is injected into the buttocks. This surgery makes the butt more shapely and voluptuous in size.
