Maintaining a beautiful and youthful figure can be challenging as you get older. This is why you may have considered plastic surgery to enhance your silhouette. In particular, many women are concerned about sagging or drooping breasts as they age and have considered getting breast implants.
If you’re like most moms, you may be realizing just how much pregnancy has changed your body. Weight fluctuations, sagging breasts, and loose abdominal muscles are some of the physical side effects of pregnancy and can make you feel self conscious about your figure.
Many people across the country chose to undergo body contouring surgeries, such as liposuction, to kick off the New Year with the body that they’ve been working toward. After the procedure, you cannot give up all of the dieting and exercising for a life of streaming Netflix on your sofa for hours with a fistful of your favorite chips. Now that you have the body you want doesn’t mean that the healthy lifestyle should come to an end.
Liposuction is About Making the Right Decisions
A common misconception about liposuction in Oregon is that it is essentially cheating the system – an easy way to overcome obesity and lose weight for those who don’t want to diet or exercise; this is not the case at all. If someone unwilling to live a healthy lifestyle undergoes liposuction, their body will likely just begin developing new fat until they are back to square one.
The issue is that many people often place blame on the procedure itself, saying that liposuction only temporarily removes fat, but that it will come back inevitably; this is incorrect. Liposuction in Oregon literally removes fat cells from the body, and these cells are gone for good. Fat will only return if someone continues to life a sedentary lifestyle and eat unhealthy, as it naturally would.
However, this is not the case for most liposuction patients. Many people who undergo liposuction are already doing their best to eat right and exercise regularly. Their problems with stubborn deposits of fat stems from uncontrollable factors, such as a slowing metabolism, genetics, and age, that have made these areas resistant to traditional forms of weight loss. Liposuction in Oregon allows these types of patients to achieve the body that they have been working for, but cannot achieve with dieting and exercise alone.
Maintaining Your New Body
Keeping your new slimmer figure is all about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The fat will not come back on its own unless you allow it. Therefore, as we continue to move further into 2014, don’t cross off all of your healthy resolutions simply because you now have the body that you want. The key to maintaining a sexy, slim figure is through a healthy lifestyle. Now that you’re the size you want, why not challenge yourself with a new resolution?

For those of you who don’t know, I visited Haiti in 2012 and spent some time working in a medical clinic for Restoration Ministries. This “clinic” was basically a house with no water or electricity.
I saw many children with life-threatening hernias that could be easily repaired in an operating room. I knew at that point that if I didn’t do something, these children would die of bowel gangrene.
I spent the next six months working toward building a clinic with an operating room in Jacmel, Haiti. Several schools and organizations have joined in the design and construction of this clinic, including Oregon State University, University of Portland, University of Oregon, Waterleaf Architecture, KPFF Engineering and many more. The designs are now complete. We are hoping to start building within a few months with the goal of opening the clinic by fall 2014.
Building this clinic has been a dream and I am so excited that it is now becoming a reality. We still have lots of fundraising to do, but we are completely encouraged and humbled by this start.
Thanks to all of you who have supported this project so far. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for more updates to come!
