There is a lot of debate out there as to what exactly makes American’s the fattest people on earth.  Some people say it is out lifestyle, too much TV and not enough exercise.  Others blame our desk jobs and our car culture.  Others still blame what is in our food, ploy-saturated fats and transfats and stuff.

But whatever the cause, it still doesn’t help us when we are trying to lose weight.  We need a total approach to get the job done.  This includes lots of exercise, a balanced lifestyle and some good eating habits. But has anyone who has tried to lose weight will tell you, you can only get so far with that.  Some people are just born with some extra ‘cushion’. To get rid of this extra padding you might need a little help from the doctor.

More and more people are realizing this and undergoing a liposuction treatment.  I know that word has a taboo around it these days, but this should be no cause for alarm.  More and more people are having the procedure and they have been receiving some great results.  What is even better is that as more and more people have the procedure done, it gets cheaper, faster, and safer.  In fact you can be in and out of the hospital in one day after your surgery.

Of course you can opt to stay in the hospital for a little while longer if that is what you need to do, be you should also be aware that it will cost you some money of that is what you want to do.  A stay in the hospital can be as expensive as staying in a very nice hotel.  But in the end it might be worth it if it speeds up your healing time.

Now, as far as the cost of the procedure goes, you should look at it in vary degrees of necessity.  My suggestion is to lose as much weight as you can before you go under the knife.  If the doctor has a clear vision of what your new tummy is supposed to look like, he or she will have a much easier time giving that to you.  Plus it will not cost as much.  But even more on top of all of that is, if you are healthy you will recover much more quickly.

But what is also very important after you have liposuction surgery is that you hit the gym as soon after the procedure as you can.  It is imperative that once the weight is off you use your extra energy to stay in shape and keep those pounds off.  This is not supposed to be a regular event or a quick solution.  Liposuction should be a starting point to get you to where you want to be, and get you to a point where you can start making some real improvements in your life.

Of course you don’t have to take my word for it, all you have to do is ask anyone who has had the procedure done…they will be able to tell you what to watch out for and what to keep in mind as you are recovering.
