Saddlebags is never a term that you want to hear in connection with your appearance. The unfortunate thing about saddlebags, or excess weight around your hips, is that for many people, it’s something that they just cannot correct with diet and exercise alone. No matter how hard they try to diet and no matter how hard they try to exercise, they just do not get the results that they want. Many individuals have turned to liposuction as a complement to their diet and exercise.
Liposuction has proven to be an effective way to address saddlebags. The reason why liposuction can be effective is that for many people, the unsatisfactory contour that sits at the sides of their thighs is very soft and is usually primarily fat. This makes liposuction the most viable and most beneficial option for addressing this issue.
As we mentioned, liposuction should be seen as a complement to diet and exercise. This is because liposuction is not designed to be a weight loss procedure. It’s true that if you use the procedure to address your saddlebags, you may lose some weight. However, liposuction is designed for individuals who are at or close to their healthy BMI. It is designed to help them address issues such as saddlebags that they just have not been able to address by diet and exercise alone.
While saddlebags can be an issue for both men and women, more women battle with them than men. Fat deposits that create saddlebags are often genetic. The thing about liposuction is that it is able to remove resistant fat. This is the key to why many people have saddlebags. This fat is resistant, or your body is not burning it no matter how much exercise you do. When this resistant fat is skillfully removed, you will be left with a beautiful contour in the lower third of your body.
