Topical creams and treatments are a popular way to do many things to our bodies, normally safely, but rarely effectively. While most creams do a minimal amount of good over a long period of time, most have almost no lasting effect on any part of our bodies. But still we turn to them for everything, from male enhancement to reducing cellulite, looking younger to feeling better about our fingernails! Much like plastic surgery, topical creams are a fad that can be costly with few lasting results.
There is no cure-all topical cream to help you lose weight fast, but used in cooperation with an effective diet and exercise plan, they can help you feel better about your body. Some do actually help smooth fine lines and wrinkles for a short period of time with regular use, and others can help minimize the appearance of cellulite in the rear and thigh areas.
Dozens of experts agree that using a topical cream for a “facelift in a bottle,” automatic breast lift, or magic eyelift is ludicrous. Many of these can only be achieved with surgery, which still can only offer results that last for a specific amount of time. No matter how many plastic surgeries we have, nothing truly halts the aging process and a tummy tuck may only make you feel younger until you gain the weight back.
No matter what online or television advertisement offers rapid weight loss without the need of diet and/or exercise, do not believe it. Instead of getting information from places that really only desire to make a few dollars at your expense, turn to the experts at your healthcare professional’s office. If you can’t afford a trip to the doctor, talk to a pharmacist. At the least, they can point you in the right direction and away from a waste of time and/or money.
Choosing how to lose weight is a major decision, and one that can affect the rest of your life. Make a wise and informed decision after weighing the pros and cons of anything your doctor offers, and do not be afraid to seek another opinion if you are unsure of something he/she tells you. Expensive does not always equal results, and, in our economy, the best choice is most often the simplest (and cheapest sometimes) one.continue reading
Traditionally, when we think about liposuction, we think of an older woman trying to look younger. On television, many shows glamorize plastic surgery as an amazing way to look younger without any real work on your part. What shows like these fail to mention is that surgeries can only delay the inevitable. If you are not living a healthy lifestyle, working out regularly, and eating right, whatever you have corrected will come back, and probably at least twice as bad.
Is it worth the money to get liposuction if it’s just going to come back? Some say it is, if for no other reason than for the boost in self-esteem. Others say no, why spend the money, go through the surgery, and experience recovery even once if it has to be repeated about every two years. It is expensive, with most plastic surgeries costing a minimum of $500 and proceeding upwards very quickly. It takes weeks, and sometimes months, to recover completely. That is, if you have no negative side effects.
Plastic surgery can be an interesting alternative to weight loss, and has its place, of course. It is a great option for those born with deformities, scarring for a variety of reasons, burns, and to remove sagging skin after significant weight loss. When done for health-related reasons, as it was designed, it can be very beneficial, and worth the cost and downtime. However, many use it as a replacement for proper diet and exercise, and this simply won’t do.
To summarize, liposuction is not evil. Having one of these surgeries performed on your body does not make you lazy, nor does it make you “one of those people,” trying to look younger than your age. There is nothing wrong with trying to improve your image, especially if you have problems that you were born with or relating to an accident or illness. Done the right way, under the right circumstances, it can be an excellent alternative to living your life as the odd man out.continue reading
