Leggings are all the rage right now. Women everywhere are enthralled with the look. Pair it with a cute bra top and you have the perfect gym attire.
Or do you?
A recent rise in liposuction popularity shows that many people are skipping the gym and choosing to undergo liposuction instead. This “athleisure” culture has many people going to extremes to achieve the body-conscious look.
ASPS studies show that liposuction rates have risen five percent in the last year alone. That is an additional 12,000 procedures, making it as popular as rhinoplasty (nose job) and breast augmentations.
Liposuction is very popular because it is considered a safe and easy way to lose weight, shed fat, and reduce cellulite. Another reason is that many people, including celebrities like Cardi B. have the procedure done and openly discuss their experience.
ASPS president Dr. Alan Matarasso says “liposuction continues to be the gold standard in body contouring because of its versatility, efficiency and effectiveness”.
It’s important to remember that, like with any invasive surgery, liposuction does come with risks. It is not a cure for being overweight, but it can aid you in loosing fat in stubborn areas. Above all, it’s essential to pair this procedure with a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise.
