If you’re the type of person to make New Year’s Resolutions, how are you doing with them? While we hope you’re fulfilling the promises you made to yourself, don’t feel too badly if you’ve gone back to your old habits.

One out of three people give up their Resolutions by the end of January, and 73 percent of people quit before meeting their goals.

See – you aren’t alone. It’s common for people to revert back to old habits.

This doesn’t mean those wishes you have are destined to go away. Usually, most people hold on to them for later. They may come up with the same Resolutions next year, or they try to work towards those goals at some other point during the year, such as for a milestone birthday.

At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we support you in your ambition to better your life. We know how hard it is to work towards a better self when motivation is lacking. That’s why many of our cosmetic and plastic surgeons decided to pursue this specialty.

We help make people’s wishes come true.

Helping You With the Most Popular Resolution – Losing Weight

The most popular Resolution people have is to lose weight. The third most popular after budgeting is fitness. We bring this up because dieting and exercise can be extremely hard to do on a regular basis. People lead busy lives, and meal planning and workouts can seem almost impossible to fit into each day.

This is why many of the people that set up free consultations with us are interested in liposuction. With our two types of liposuction (tumescent and SmartLipoTM laser), people can lose fat from specific areas of their body. They can slim the abdominal area, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, and back (just to name a few). Targeted fat loss is something that even exercise can’t do for people, so we’re happy to offer liposuction as a viable option for most patients.

Please note that although liposuction removes fat, it’s purpose is to slim inches in certain areas. It is not intended for weight loss. You will lose ounces, not pounds. By just a few weeks post-op, people can look the way they want.

In order to keep their newfound appearance, a healthy diet and regular exercise is crucial. Poor lifestyle habits will lead to poor post-surgical results. Liposuction can be a great motivator to eat well and stay active!

Of course, getting time away from work to recover from surgery is needed, but healing doesn’t take too long. This often works out well for people and gives them a few days to rest.
