Fighting fat is a battle that many people deal with. Unfortunately, staying slim is something that is hard to achieve just by diet and exercise. Having a fit body is a struggle and losing weight is hard to do for many people.

Luckily, there are alternatives available to assist those who need help with getting the body of your dreams. One of the most common ways to do so is by body contouring. The procedure is non-invasive and it’s relatively inexpensive.

If you’d like to know more about how about this incredible “miracle”.

Read on for more information

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is performed primarily through liposuction, and the procedure consists of removing fat or excess skin from a certain area. Nowadays, the technique is done in a variety of ways including laser liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, tumescent liposuction, or ultrasonic-assisted liposuction.

Body contouring treatment is a quick outpatient procedure that’s normally is done in just one day. The primary areas that are corrected during the procedure are the stomach, arms, back, thighs, and breasts. Weight is distributed differently for every individual, but these sections of the body are considered problem areas.

However, the beauty of contouring is that it targets areas that are difficult the reduce through diet and exercise.

Who Are the Best Candidates for Body Contouring Treatment?

Not everyone who feels that they need body contour treatment is eligible for the procedure. Many times you have to have a certain amount of fat or sagging skin and other requirements before you can undergo treatment. Here are a few factors to help you decide if you qualify as a body contour candidate:

  • Nonsmoker
  • An adult who has maintained weight loss
  • A healthy individual with no medical issues that could hinder healing or increase the risk of major surgery
  • A person who is dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle after treatment

When it comes to body contouring, the specialist has to be selective in the people that they choose to work on. For those who have minimal fat, this is not a good procedure to undergo.

Although body contouring is non-invasive, it should not be used as a tool to fix minimal problem areas. Also, patients are expected to continue their fitness journey after body contour treatment because the surgery should not be used every time there is weight gain.

Furthermore, it’s not a good idea to undergo surgical contouring multiple times because it may be too stressful on the body.

What Are the Body Contouring Costs?

Every facility charges different prices; however, the cost of getting a body makeover is generally the same. Prices are usually set up based on what the individual desires. For instance, if you want a tummy tuck it’ll probably cost roughly $2,500. But if you’d like your stomach and your thighs sculpted at the same time, that might be an additional $1,500.

Some offices may also have a special rate for those who want to have multiple sections of their body contoured. So, if you desire to have your arms, back, and thighs done all at once, that may cost $6,000 or $7,000 depending on the facility that you choose.

What to Expect After Body Contouring Treatment

After you undergo the procedure there’s a bit of a recovery period that you’ll have to take in order to begin functioning normally again. Your surgeon will explain how you proceed after your treatment by giving you medication for pain and also schedule a follow-up appointment.

You might also have to avoid bending or lifting for several weeks and stay away from any movement that requires you to use your thighs or abdomen.

Furthermore, to reduce the risk of blood clots in the legs, it’s recommended that you walk regularly and drink as much fluid as possible.

The Results After the Procedure

After receiving body contouring treatment, you will see an immediate difference in your figure. However, it could take several weeks or months for things to start to come together. Not only that, but it could also take up to two years to see the final results of your procedure.

Your results should last as long as you maintain the shape and figure of your shape post-surgery. Unfortunately, body contouring does not prevent you from gaining weight in the future, so it’s best to live a healthy lifestyle. Furthermore, scarring can take place as a result of your treatment.

The surgeon should be able to recommend some methods that you can do to help heal the look of the incisions, but it’s a good idea to accept that you will have visible scars. However, there are plenty of over-the-counter products and natural remedies that you can use to reduce their appearance.

Get the Body You’ve Always Dreamed Of

Everyone wants to feel confident and look amazing. Thankfully, body contouring makes that easy for you. If you’ve struggled with being overweight or having sagging skin, you might have stopped and thought to yourself, ” I wish I could just take the fat off!” Well, now that’s all possible and the days of struggling to sculpt your body are over. Seriously, if you don’t have to battle fat anymore, why would you?

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look amazing in your clothes, and now you can have a stunning body in just one day.

If You Want to be as Great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk or Sir Richard Branson, Read This

Success, real insane success is a marathon. Oh, and there are no shortcuts. You can’t spring your way to greatness. It takes times, a very long time.

Here is Richard Branson’s business timeline – his business ventures from the 1960s to today. It’s a very long list. It will give you an idea of what it took him to get to now.

These are two of the most upvoted responses on Quora to this question: “How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk or Sir Richard Branson?

1. Justine Musk, Canadian author, and the first wife of Elon Musk

Extreme success results from an extreme personality and comes at the cost of many other things. Extreme success is different from what I suppose you could just consider ‘success’, so know that you don’t have to be Richard or Elon to be affluent and accomplished and maintain a great lifestyle.

Your odds of happiness are better that way. But if you’re extreme, you must be what you are, which means that happiness is more or less beside the point. These people tend to be freaks and misfits who were forced to experience the world in an unusually challenging way.

They developed strategies to survive, and as they grow older they find ways to apply these strategies to other things, and create for themselves a distinct and powerful advantage.

They don’t think the way other people think. They see things from angles that unlock new ideas and insights. Other people consider them to be somewhat insane.

Be obsessed.

Be obsessed.

Be obsessed.

If you’re not obsessed, then stop what you’re doing and find whatever does obsess you. It helps to have an ego, but you must be in service to something bigger if you are to inspire the people you need to help you  (and make no mistake, you will need them).

That ‘something bigger’ prevents you from going off into the ether when people flock round you and tell you how fabulous you are when you aren’t and how great your stuff is when it isn’t. Don’t pursue something because you “want to be great”.

Pursue something because it fascinates you, because the pursuit itself engages and compels you. Extreme people combine brilliance and talent with an *insane* work ethic, so if the work itself doesn’t drive you, you will burn out or fall by the wayside or your extreme competitors will crush you and make you cry.

Follow your obsessions until a problem starts to emerge, a big meaty challenging problem that impacts as many people as possible, that you feel hellbent to solve or die trying.

It might take years to find that problem, because you have to explore different bodies of knowledge, collect the dots and then connect and complete them.

It helps to have superhuman energy and stamina. If you are not blessed with godlike genetics, then make it a point to get into the best shape possible.

There will be jet lag, mental fatigue, bouts of hard partying, loneliness, pointless meetings, major setbacks, family drama, issues with the Significant Other you rarely see, dark nights of the soul, people who bore and annoy you, little sleep, less sleep than that. Keep your body sharp to keep your mind sharp. It pays off.

Learn to handle a level of stress that would break most people.

Don’t follow a pre-existing path, and don’t look to imitate your role models. There is no “next step”. Extreme success is not like other kinds of success; what has worked for someone else, probably won’t work for you.

They are individuals with bold points of view who exploit their very particular set of unique and particular strengths. They are unconventional, and one reason they become the entrepreneurs they become is because they can’t or don’t or won’t fit into the structures and routines of corporate life.

They are dyslexic, they are autistic, they have ADD, they are square pegs in round holes, they piss people off, get into arguments, rock the boat, laugh in the face of paperwork.

But they transform weaknesses in ways that create added advantage — the strategies I mentioned earlier — and seek partnerships with people who excel in the areas where they have no talent whatsoever.

They do not fear failure — or they do, but they move ahead anyway. They will experience heroic, spectacular, humiliating, very public failure but find a way to reframe until it isn’t failure at all.

When they fail in ways that other people won’t, they learn things that other people don’t and never will. They have incredible grit and resilience.

They are unlikely to be reading stuff like this. (This is *not* to slam or criticize people who do; I love to read this stuff myself.) They are more likely to go straight to a book: perhaps a biography of Alexander the Great or Catherine the Great* or someone else they consider Great.

Surfing the ‘Net is a deadly timesuck, and given what they know their time is worth — even back in the day when technically it was not worth that — they can’t afford it.

I could go on, it’s a fascinating subject, but you get the idea. I wish you luck and strength and perhaps a stiff drink should you need it.

2. Michael Simmons, Co-Founder, Empact & Award-Winning Entrepreneur

Most of these people have focused on individual traits such as hard work, deliberate practice, etc.. But when we look in the real world, we see that individual traits aren’t the whole story.

There are so many people who work extremely hard, have great ideas, plan out big things and so forth, yet they are not nearly as successful as these four legends.

I myself am an entrepreneur. I have been since the age of 16. Recently though, I had the same underlying question you had.

Because of that, I went out searching for the answer.

Through my interviews I do for Forbes, I recently came across the field of network science. This field has studied how people become successful from a completely different angle. They’ve found that how we build our network may be the best predictor of success.

Since then, I have interviewed many of the world’s top network scientists on a quest to understand how networks create competitive advantage in business and careers.

Out of the four legends that have been mentioned, I feel that the best person to showcase as a prime example of how networks impact success is  Steve Jobs.

Since then, books have been written and movies have been made.

Each has celebrated his legacy and aimed to share the secrets he used to build the largest company in the world; things like attention to detail, attracting world-class talent and holding them to high standards.

We think we understand what caused his success.

We don’t.

We dismiss usable principles of success by labeling them as personality quirks.

What’s often missed is the paradoxical interplay of two of his seemingly opposite qualities;

  1. Maniacal focus
  2. Insatiable curiosity

These weren’t just two random strengths. They may have been his most important as they helped lead to everything else.

Jobs’ curiosity fueled his passion and provided him with access to unique insights, skills, values, and world-class people who complemented his own skillset. Job’s focus brought those to bear in the world of personal electronics.

I don’t just say this as someone who has devoured practically every article, interview, and book featuring him.

I say this as someone who has been monomaniacal in the study and research of what the underlying key components are that create career success.
