Losing a significant amount of weight means making a lifestyle change. It’s not easily done overnight, and there can be a lot of hiccups along the way. When you ask anyone who has wanted to lose weight if it’s easy, the answer is usually no.

However, some people have found a way to start their weight loss program with a plastic surgery procedure - Smart Lipo. The Smart Lipo procedure has helped many people get started with a weight loss program by helping them see that changes in their body can really happen as long as they continue to work hard.

This can be incredibly motivating because they can see that their body can really turn into the shape they desire.

Rosie, a West Michigan mother, was one of these people. She used Smart Lipo to help her lose more than 110 pounds. It took her five years to do it, but through her healthy lifestyle and procedures, she is now able to face the world with a completely new outlook on life. She’s healthier, more active, and hits the road running every day as she trains for 5Ks.

Factors to Consider Before Smartlipo

Before anyone decides to use Smart Lipo for motivation with a weight loss program, it’s important to consider these factors:

  • Smart Lipo will only remove some of the fat from areas of your body. It is not a tool for weight loss. Only a healthy diet and exercise will help you lose the weight and keep it off.
  • While Smart Lipo can tone some areas of your body, it’s not what will give you flat, tight abs. Toned abs come from hard work in the gym doing crunches and other abdominal exercises.
  • Smart Lipo should only be used to boost the results that you’re already seeing in your weight loss efforts. It’s a great way to get motivated and to help you stay on track.

Liposuction vs. Smart Lipo

Some women decide to have traditional liposuction first because it can remove a lot more of the fat that has accumulated on the body. Smart Lipo is good for removing smaller amounts of fat and tightening the skin around the area where the fat was removed.
