Are you struggling with your weight? Have you tried working out and every diet in the book? Now you are considering surgery because its quick, easy and you’ll have the body of your dreams!! Well before you think about going under the knife, take a look at the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery and working out.
Liposuction is a relatively popular form of cosmetic surgery, involving the surgical removal of fat from an area or areas of your body. It is quicker than working out and results are instant. Exercise is less popular because it can be physically demanding and requires a lot of effort, the results are not as instant but they last longer
Whereas exercise is a steady way to lose weight, liposuction is an almost-instant method of losing a significant amount of fat. weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs. per week through diet and exercise is a safe and reasonable amount. Liposuction may remove many pounds of fat in a single day. For this reason, liposuction may be an attractive option if you are looking for a quick weight loss method. However, the weight lost through liposuction is relatively likely to come back if you do not exercise regularly following the surgery.
Both exercise and liposuction may have significant associated money costs, but exercise can be done for free. Walking, swimming, jogging, running and cycling are some examples of exercise that can be done without any financial outlay. Exercise-associated costs may include gym membership, sporting equipment and clothing and travel costs, but none of these are essential if you want to lose weight through exercise. Liposuction.com indicates that, in 2010, surgical fees for liposuction range between approximately £1,500 and £7,500 per procedure.
Effect on Health.
A consistent regimen of aerobic exercise will have several beneficial effects on your physical and mental health and well-being. Losing weight through exercise reduces your risk of heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and types of cancer. Additionally, exercise boosts your mood and strengthens your immune system. In contrast, losing weight through liposuction does not cause any measurable health benefits, risk of heart disease or stroke is not reduced with liposuction.
Liposuction carries more serious inherent risks than exercising for weight loss. Liposuction carries the risk of heart problems, shock, infections, bleeding, fat embolism, nerve or tissue damage, drug reactions and scarring. Exercise carries a risk of injury from falling, impact or accidents, and this risk increases with high-speed sporting activities or contact team sports. However, the risk of injury from exercise is generally outweighed by the positive physical effects of working out.
