Akron gives heave-ho to lipo due to benefits of Exilis body shaping

Hitting the gym doesn't shrink your trouble areas. Maybe you lost 30 pounds, but you gained excess skin. Whatever the case may be for your visiting Seriously Skin's virtual destination, we have an effective solution that doesn't require surgery - Exilis body shaping.

The problem: Localized fat

Obesity is defined by the Centers for Disease Control as a Body Mass Index of 30 or more. A reliable measure of fat (in most people), BMI is the ratio of your weight to height.

Obesity is characterized by generalized fat, distributed uniformly across the body. Localized fat is restricted to a specific spot. Even with diet and exercise, the following areas of pudge may not budge:
  • Chin
  • Lower belly
  • Outer thighs
  • Waist
  • Underarms
  • Calves, ankles
Placing blame

It's frustrating to have bulges and lumps despite a consistent workout routine and diet.

There are numerous causes for notoriously stubborn fat deposits, namely:
  • Age - Every 10 years your metabolism slows by about 5 percent.
  • Menopause - As this change of life approaches, falling estrogen levels cause fat to be distributed differently, especially around the middle.
  • Other hormones - Some research suggests the stress hormone cortisol (responsible for the "apple" shape) triggers declining estrogen levels.
The answers?

Liposuction surgery involves suctioning fat from and contouring areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms and neck.

Other surgical techniques to regain a desirable shape include a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, and an arm lift -- a procedure whereby skin and flab is eliminated from the underarms between the armpit and elbow.

Liposuction is often used with a tummy tuck to tighten underlying muscle and help with contouring.

A better solution

Lipo is very effective on localized areas; however, it is invasive and it's not for everyone. Preexisting conditions that weaken your immune system or medications such as blood thinners can contraindicate this procedure.

Exilis is a nonsurgical answer to removing troublesome regions. It uses radiofrequency energy to heat targeted fat. The procedure accounts for differences among fat cells and other types of cells, associated with how they respond to stimuli like changing temperatures.

At Seriously Skin, we safely and comfortably deliver controlled heat deep within the fat cells, destroying them. Another benefit is Exilis tightens skin by stimulating the collagen responsible for its firmness. Consider that your underarm, for example, we can tighten the skin and remove the fat.
