It’s during the middle-aged years that adults grow wiser, having learned from their previous mistakes. The middle-aged years is also a time when adults start seeing the results of their food choices. Stomachs may begin to balloon, thighs widen and hips thicken. However, diet isn’t the only culprit. Stress also plays a role in what an adult’s body looks like after she enters her middle years. Exercise is one option to slim down, getting back to earlier sizes. But, it’s not the only option.
If you’ve tried eating healthily and exercising in the quest for body beautiful but aren’t seeing the results you crave, liposuction is a great way to target stubborn areas of your body that just aren’t responding to your regime.
But before you go under the knife, it’s important to understand what you’re signing up to and be prepared with the right questions to ask your surgeon…

Depending on the type of liposuction you’re getting done and the area of your body you’re targeting, the recovery time can vary. Some people only need two or three days while others can need weeks of recovery time until they feel able to get on with their lives. Your doctor will be able to give you an estimate of what downtime to expect, but everyone’s different.

If you can’t afford a lot of downtime, pick a minimally invasive procedure like vaser liposuction available from The Sloane Clinic, which achieves fast results using ultrasound technology to break down fat cells without weeks of swelling. It’s also less likely to cause bruising and bleeding than other forms or surgical liposuction, which makes it far less disruptive to your normal life.
