Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2008
Even in tough economic times like these, many women in Southern California are discovering that cosmetic surgery may be the key to helping them achieve New Year's resolutions to improve their body shape and live healthier, happier lives. Dr. Robert Yoho (http://www.dryoho.com), serving Los Angeles and Fresno cosmetic surgery clients from offices in Visalia and Pasadena, says that liposuction is an increasingly popular and effective way for many women to generate the momentum they need to follow through on body-shape resolutions.
Statistically, around half of U.S. women will make resolutions related to improving their body appearance, but studies suggests that over 90% of these resolutions may fail because many women lack the help they need to follow through on their body shaping plans. In addition to proper diet and exercise, a Los Angeles liposuction procedure can keep resolutions on track.
"Many people run into problems with their body reshaping resolutions," Dr. Yoho explains. "Localized fat deposits, or LDFs, contribute to body shape problems because they tend to be distributed unevenly and are resistant to the typical 'diet and exercise' resolution plan. Unfortunately, many people every year will give up on their efforts to live healthier, simply because LDFs are preventing them from making much visible progress."
LDFs are patches of fat that the body deposits differently from normal fat, due to factors like genetics, pregnancy, puberty, hormone medications, or other processes than can alter the body's typical fat-storage processes. These deposits resist normal weight loss efforts - and typically require cosmetic surgery for a long-term result. Dr. Yoho has a new laser technology for his Los Angeles and Fresno, CA liposuction patients that delivers targeted results quickly and safely.
Smartlipo™ is an increasingly popular way for women and men to achieve their body shaping goals. It is especially useful for smaller pockets of fat and for fine-tuning traditional liposuction results. Smartlipo uses a laser-tipped cannula, or medical wand, to rupture fat cells, which then can be suctioned away or eliminated through the body's natural cleansing process. Laser technology also allows for safer and much faster procedures. The laser's heat helps skin tighten to match a patient's slimmer shape, and allows for finely tuned surgery that minimizes healthy tissue damage.
"It is important for patients to keep in mind that liposuction, including the new Smartlipo procedure, is not a substitute for weight loss," Dr. Yoho warns. "However, liposuction can be a highly effective way for women and men who are already near their goal weight to get rid of those last few pounds. When you can enjoy a slimmer shape, your body becomes a reminder of the importance of maintaining healthy habits for both short and long-term happiness."
In addition to Fresno, CA liposuction and Smartlipo laser lipolysis, women and men can achieve their New Year's resolutions through other cosmetic surgery procedures, including tummy tuck, face lift, and breast augmentation. "I'm happy to be able to help so many patients achieve their resolutions," adds Dr. Yoho. "Cosmetic surgery can encourage you in your efforts to look and feel more attractive and full of life. For many people, that's all they need to develop the kind of habits that enable a positive, healthy lifestyle."
