How to Get Rid of the Holiday Bulge | Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of NY

© Arto –

It’s hard not to fall into temptation with all the tasty treats served during the holiday season. It’s truly a wonderful time of year centered on family, friends…and food.

With most adults needing a max of 2,000 calories a day, it’s no surprise the Calorie Control Council has reported the average weight gain is between 1 to 3 pounds during this time of the year.

While this may not seem like much, this weight gain is actually a considerable amount when you think about it equating to about a pound gained each week.

What is even more discouraging is the CCC reports most people don’t ever lose those added pounds. This could be because it’s difficult to lose the weight through diet and exercise, or because their life is just too busy to work on a healthy eating and weight loss plan.

Why People Have Trouble Succeeding After Weight Gain

This is why many people turn to a plastic surgeon after the holiday season. They look in the mirror and see years of holidays on their hips. The end result usually means dissatisfaction with their body shape. They want a slimmer and trimmer abdominal area, thinner thighs, or perhaps are even considering liposuction for sculpting their buttocks.

Even with a strict and successful weight loss plan, gaining and losing weight may not occur in the places we want it to. While most of us tend to gain weight in some areas, losing weight can happen in other areas where we don’t want it to, such as our face or breasts. Once weight loss has taken place in the face, the effects of aging can be very apparent.

Fat Transfer Surgery: A Solution for Losing Inches and Years

Those that want to look slimmer in the thighs, abdominal area, hips, waist, or buttocks can do so with a liposuction procedure. The fat that is removed can be purified and then injected into the location of choice such as the breasts, cheeks, wrinkles, or lips.

While fat transfer and liposuction are not a form of weight control, they can serve as a viable option for people who have struggled to keep fat off certain areas of their body. It’s also an ideal option for people who are noticing they are losing fat in areas that make them appear older.
