Whittling Away with Waist Training: Good or Bad?

Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, and Nicole “Snookie” Polizza, these are just a few of the celebrities who have kick started this crazy new weight loss trend known as “Waist Training”, but what is it?? Well first of all, we shouldn’t exactly consider this trend new, as this phenomenon has been around since the Victorian era. Women would wear corsets to whittle inches off and reshape their waist to give an appearance of an hourglass silhouette, and after years of being absent, this fashion passé’ is making quite a comeback! Now the question to ask is, is waist training safe to do? There are many articles floating around the internet, some praising waist training and others shunning it as if it were the black plague.

Do Not Believe The Hype: The Dangers of Cosmetic Surgery Tourism

“Dominican authorities have shut down a plastic surgery clinic as they investigate the death of a U.S. woman who traveled to the Caribbean country to undergo a liposuction procedure, officials said Sunday.” This is a statement taken from a recent article posted on Latino Fox News website on yet another occurrence of death by liposuction. This is the fourth woman and second American who has died this year at a Dominican plastic surgery clinic. Cosmetic surgery tourism has rapidly been climbing in numbers as many U.S. Citizens have been flocking to these Caribbean destinations, enticed by some fun in the sun and not only returning home with a fresh tan, but some fresh buns as well…if you catch my drift.

Does The Fat Come Back??

Here at MyShape Lipo, most of our patients come from out of town, or even out of the country. So you can imagine how many questions we get regarding the procedure. However, we tend to hear one question in particular more than any other. “Does the fat come back after liposuction??” Surely after saving up the money, and finally making the decision to go through with the procedure you want to KNOW that this is going to work and not be a waste of time. So with that being said, our liposuction specialist Trevor Schmidt PA-C has made a short video to put those concerns to rest. In this video he explains, that the fat we have as a baby, is the same fat that we have as adults. When we go through the FUN process of dieting and exercising (we just love that, don’t we?!?) our fat cells SHRINK, and when we gain weight (from the causes of stress, break-ups, bills, etc) our fat cells SWELL. The art of liposuction physically REMOVES those stubborn fat cells, so if you gain a substantial amount of weight (15-25 lbs) after the procedure, the areas that were treated will not expand as much as the areas that were left untreated. Therefore, as long as you maintain a healthy diet, and exercise regimen your time and money have not gone to waste! I hope this video has been educational for you all!
