Subcutaneous versus Visceral Fat

One common misconception that Dr. Pin often comes across is that prospective patients who are interested in liposuction are looking for a quick solution to remove excess fat without having to actually change their diet or exercise habits. In fact, quite the opposite is often true. Many of his liposuction patients already follow a balanced, low-fat diet and get 30 minutes of exercise at least five days a week. The reason they are interested in liposuction is to remove stubborn areas of fat that have not properly responded to their wellness routine. In essence, liposuction is the finishing touch they want so they can proudly show off the results of all of their weight loss efforts. Read Full Article…

Subcutaneous vs. Visceral Fat Removal

If you look at your reflection in a mirror, you may notice that your nose is the most prominent feature on your face.

Cosmetic Surgery versus Plastic Surgery

Do you think that cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery are the exact same thing? If so, don’t feel badly, because the truth is that most people easily make that mistake. In fact, a 2004 article published in the Archives of Facial and Plastic Surgery (now called JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery) studied the difference in public perception between cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery. The researchers surveyed 216 people in terms of how they viewed this difference in various ways, including permanence, risk, expense, recovery, reversibility, pain, technical difficulty, and surgeon training. Overall, respondents thought that cosmetic surgery was less permanent, risky, painful, and technically difficult, and had a shorter recovery time than did plastic surgery. They also thought that cosmetic surgeons needed significantly less training than did plastic surgeons. Read Full Article…

Is It Safe to Undergo Liposuction in Multiple Areas at Once?

Perhaps one of the most frustrating concepts about attempting to lose weight, particularly when it comes to burning off fat, is that your body doesn’t only collect fat in one particular area. In other words, all of your excess fat will not just be deposited around your abdomen or your buttocks. This can be very frustrating because you may not lose that fat equally once you start on a regular routine of exercise and a low-fat diet. For example, many people may first notice a reduction in excess fat on their upper arms, but reduction in abdominal fat takes much longer. Read Full Article…
