For the uninitiated and those who need little cosmetic work done it is easy to look at those who do need it and judge them that they are somehow vain and selfish. I will repeat what a famous General in WW2 said about surrender….NUTS. Yes, there are those who look great already but continue to want more and tweek their look into something not natural. But what we do goes way beyond the visible. What cosmetic transformation does for the majority of my patients is give them back not only a better look but an inner self confidence that many have not had for years. I recently had a young woman who has been obese since her teen years and is now 30. She was tired of being relegated to the larger, loose clothes and other than work did not want to go out in public or participate in any social activities. We did our Genesis Signature LipoSculpting on her abdomen and flanks with attention to contouring details that would develop as her skin retracted. Because of her size a minor touch up on the abdomen was done to further stimulate the skin to retract. Now at 5 months out from her first procedure she is smiling and wearing form fitting clothing that was denied her for over 10 years. She admitted that she now realizes that her size made her depressed and that drove her to eat more which made her bigger then more depressed which drove her to eat more…get the endless cycle. Lipo has given her body back to her and in turn her diet is healthy now and her social life is exploding. A recent picture she sent in was a wonderful “wow” moment for me and my staff. I am not implying that all obese people lack self confidence and are ashamed. Many live life to the fullest. But so many don’t due to self conciousness about their size. If you are one of those consider a combination of Lipo at Genesis along with a re-focus of your diet and lifestyle. You may be the next one for that “wow” moment.
