When it comes to unwanted bumps and bulges, shapewear is the go-to solution for many women. But at some point, many women wish they didn’t have to rely on Spanx® to feel attractive in their favorite dress. Liposuction at our Guilford, CT, practice can be the answer to these problems. As a long-lasting solution with powerful contouring abilities, liposuction makes squeezing into shapewear a thing of the past.
Liposuction isn’t right for everyone, of course, but many women enjoy gaining a boost of confidence after body contouring procedures. Here are 3 common signs that you may be ready to make the jump to liposuction.
You’re tired of feeling uncomfortable.
Most shapewear is made of nylon or spandex—two synthetic materials that don’t breathe well. These textures can feel itchy and constricting after hours of wear. While shapewear works well as a short-term fix, many women grow tired of it over the long term.
Getting dressed for a fancy event shouldn’t be something to dread. Liposuction can help you slim down problem areas without the need for tight material or specialized clothing. By permanently removing unwanted fat, you can wear the outfits you want without issue. Don’t worry about pairing your dress with the right set of Spanx—your whole closet is available at any time.
Your shapewear doesn’t do enough shaping.
While Spanx can be useful in a pinch, the product can only do so much. Most shapewear items address certain areas of the body and smooth over more subtle bulges. If you need to slim more than just the midsection or upper thighs, you may be out of luck.
Liposuction can make more dramatic changes to multiple areas of the body. While it’s most commonly used along the belly area, liposuction can also trim down the arms, thighs, buttocks, and sometimes even a double chin. When coupled with a healthy lifestyle, liposuction can shrink down stubborn fat deposits. The results from liposuction are much more noticeable than merely moving around unwanted rolls.
You want a long-term solution.
The results from shapewear only last as long as you’re wearing the items. Once you take the garments off, you look in the mirror and see the same bumps and bulges from before. Don’t tie your confidence to shapewear and feel dependent on a certain garment. You should feel beautiful and self-assured all the time, not just when you squeeze into Spanx.
With liposuction, you can change the actual shape of your body and enjoy long-lasting results. No matter the outfit, no matter the occasion, your curves will look like the shape you want. Many patients report this heightened confidence affects many areas of their life. When you feel good in your own skin, your quality of life often gets a dramatic lift.
