Women experience many changes to their bodies, and menopause is one that affects all women at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, one of the many side effects of menopausal changes is weight gain that occurs as hormones decrease and metabolism slows down. In addition to an increase in weight, fat is also redistributed which usually causes a higher concentration of fat in the abdominal area.
Women may exercise regularly and make healthy choices about what they eat, but often their body contours continue to change, leaving behind the shapely curves of younger womanhood. Menopause affects the body regardless of whether exercise routines or healthy eating has changed. With age, it also becomes harder for the body to lose weight. Despite these changes, most women still feel young and active in middle age and are looking for a solution to maintain a youthful body shape.
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of patients receiving liposuction procedures in the 35-50 age range almost doubled from the 19-34 age range, correlating with the average age that menopause occurs for women. As more women seek a way to reclaim their body shape, liposuction remains a popular procedure.
Perfect for targeting areas of weight gain and stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise, liposuction is used to re-shape and contour the body. While it’s not a solution for weight loss, the procedure can redefine and bring back your shape. At the Quatela Center, multiple options for liposuction procedures are offered, allowing the procedure to be customized to fit each patient’s needs.
