Body Sculpting and Contouring

Non-surgical liposuction

You may have considered all the options when it comes to excess fat removal, including surgical liposuction, lipodissolve, laser lipo or non-surgical lipo cavitation.  With an abundance of treatments and procedures to choose from you may feel somewhat overwhelmed when it comes to selecting what is right for you.

With surgical liposuction, you get probably the best results overall but with it comes the surgery downtime, anesthesia  pain, swelling and an average cost of $5,000.  This is the only method of liposuction that guarantees that the removed fat can be seen and measured.

A surgeon will perform the procedure by using hollow cannulas and a fluid containing local anesthetic and agents to shrink the blood vessels.  This is connected to a vacuum that allows the fat to be pumped out.  Recovery time and level of pain depend on where and how much lipo was performed but there will be painful surgery downtime to contend with.

Cavitation Liposuction

With lipo cavitation there is no anesthesia, pain, surgery downtime, skin damage or swelling and on average it only costs $500.  However the results may not be as dramatic and take longer overall to achieve.  You can expect to see a result immediately and as you continue with weekly treatments you will see loss in the treated area.  It is common to do before and after measurements so that you can gauge fat loss.

If you want to achieve dramatic weight loss then it is recommended that you get the advice of a nutritionist, dietitian and personal trainer.  There is no better alternative to controlling your weight than following a healthy lifestyle – eating a balanced diet, doing regular exercise and drinking plenty of water.  Liposuction and cavitation assist in the removal of excess fatty deposits but are not a general weight loss tool.

If however, you are looking to contour and sculpt your body and already have a considerably good diet, exercise often enough, but still can’t seem to shift those lose few inches or have problematic areas of excess body fat then liposuction, surgical or non-invasive may be the answer for you.

Lipo cavitation is a revolutionary method for removing excess body fat and it works by using ultrasonic frequency.  It generates low frequency ultrasonic waves, causing micro bubbles that create energy inside the fat cells.  This allows the fat cell membrane to erupt and the liquefied fat is excreted from the body through the lymphatic system. It does not affect any surrounding structures, blood vessels, nerves or internal organs.

It is recommended that you don’t burden your liver and kidneys before lipo caviation so it’ best to avoid alcohol and greasy, spicy, fried food for 2-3 days before your treatment.  You need to drink lots of water in the day, and especially 2 hours before your treatment.  It’s also highly recommended that you do 20 minutes of cardio after treatment as this speeds up your bodies natural mechanisms for breaking down fat. A lymphatic drainage massage also aids the body in elimination so this is another highly recommended treatment in conjunction with lipo caviation.

Contraindications of Lipo Cavitation:
  • Liver or kidney disease or disorder
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Skin disorders or disease
  • Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease / irregular heart rhythm
  • Immune system / circulatory system disorders
  • Pacemaker or internal fitted device including metal structures prosthetic hip or knee

If you are looking to sculpt and contour your body, or remove excess fat in certain areas then this is a safe, pain free option where there is no surgery down time or heavy costs involved.  The results are noticeable within the first few sessions and it is recommended that you do 6-8 treatments on an area initially.  With treatments only taking between 20-30 minutes, it can easily be fitted into your day with minimal disruption.  You can expect to have a 4-5 inch loss after 8 treatments and this should stay off permanently if you maintain a good diet and regular exercise.

Frantic Fridays all round!

It’s Friday and that’s good news right?  Well I am glad it’s the end of the week, but it’s been such a busy one that I have missed a few days from my blogging challenge.  Oh well, it was just a personal thing, nobody else really cares if I do it or not, and I am fine with it so moving along….

This morning whilst I was driving, I had my usual quantity of daydreaming, this time it was about having some sort of sign in my car that I can show other drivers who drive like idiots.  This woman in a nice new white Golf GTI overtook me and a few other cars, who were just going normal speed and was in such a hurry she was risking wrecking her new car.  As she speed past us she hit every sort of pothole imaginable, which she wouldn’t of, if she had just stayed in the left lane like everyone else. As she screeched past I wondered where she was rushing to at 9am?

Anyway I had forgotten about her by the time I had reached the next traffic lights, only to find who in front of me?  Yes, her. The car right in front of me, who had overtaken me about three minutes previously in such a hurry, was now just sitting here waiting with everyone else.  I needed my sign.

It would say:

Ha ha well done, you raced ahead, damaged your car on the numerous potholes you hit, wasted petrol and are still sitting here no closer to your destination than I am.

People in this place are in such a rush for nothing.  They overtake you only to brake and turn in front of you or get nowhere faster.  It’s madness.  So I laugh and plan out my little car signs to these people who clearly don’t realise the stress and strain they are adding to their lives by always rushing.  Maybe I’m just getting old!

Routine resumes!

So back to school for my two babies today.  This is their second term of pre-school and they both seemed quite happy to be dropped off there this morning, probably delighted to be doing something interesting for the first time in 6 weeks.  I lie a little, they have done a lot of interesting things in the last 6 weeks – animal parks, boat trips, adventurous family days out and of course attending their mom and dads wedding.

Today we also started the ‘big school’ applications for Keira, next year will be Rocco’s turn.  Time is flying by and although I call them my babies, they are not really little babies any more.

Keira is two and 8 months and a typical little girl, who likes to play dress up and have her hair done.  Rocco on the other hand, even at 20 months much prefers getting muddy from head to toe whilst obsessing over ‘big trucks’.  They both love to sing all the nursery rhymes together and recite verses from other random songs too.  The house is definitely quieter without all the singing, shouting, tears, tantrums and bikes riding up and down the driveway, but I miss the chaos in some small way.

So back to work, routine and structure in 2013…for a moment.

On that note…

Looked back over my blog and I write about a lot of random stuff, I have concluded.  There isn’t really much structure or method to the madness, apart from the most recent blog challenge I set myself.  The focus was meant to be on the ultimate quest in life – happiness and instead it’s turned into a charade of dentistry, weird wedding advice and spirituality.  Either I am really onto something here and exploring every random avenue of life is happiness itself, or maybe I am just learning how to do this audience captivating content thing still and finding my groove, but it’s quite unique all the same. So this is a blog that’s unique, just like everyone else’s.

The positive effects of seeking spirituality

There are several definitions to the word spirituality, however in this case I am talking specifically about 1. Of, from or relating to God or 2. Of or belonging to a church or religion.  Anything to do with spirit natures, the supernatural or the soul I know nothing about and don’t intend to.

Recently I have begun taking more interest in things of a spiritual nature and it’s really hit home as to what’s been missing in my life over the last 10 years or so.  Having a sense of faith in something you cannot see or touch can give you more purpose in life and guidelines for better living.  It can make you feel more content and happy and I have found it is not only helping me, but also my family to live a richer, fuller life.

Whether you want to separate religion and spirituality is up to you,  Apparently one in five people would call themselves spiritual but not religious. However both seem to lean towards the same thing – believing there is a higher power, trying to foster a relationship with a higher power and living life according to morals, principles, daily practices and rituals that allow you to build that relationship.

When individuals or families face difficult times it can be a powerful source of strength and comfort, believing in something more and relying on God to help you focus on what is important and good.  Having a spiritual understanding can give people higher levels of optimism and discover what life is really all about, not just an existence in the physical sense.  It helps us have a deeper appreciation for life itself and it enables you to understand values and meanings by which we should be living.

Spiritual people are generally said to have a more balanced overall health too.  The World Health Organisations definition of health is ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’.  I think that at some point there was a debate as to whether the definition should include physical, mental, social and spiritual well being, but currently it’s not included.  This was something to do with the argument of “evolution” or “created by God”, from what I can remember.  However studies have shown that being spiritual has known to reduce depression, improve blood pressure and boost the immune system although I’m sure you will find someone who will argue with this.  I think that becoming more spiritual, means building a closer relationship with our Creator and just knowing more about him and his purpose for the world can help alleviate certain problems in our lives, especially if we apply the principles and guidelines set for us to have a happier life.

Destructive behavior such as smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, gambling seems to be less common among people that are more spiritual or religious.  Maybe religious or spiritual people are known to have less stress in life and more satisfaction because they have a better conscience about living a more wholesome lifestyle.  Making even small changes in line with what you learn about life and what Gods purposes is for us should bring you step closer to spiritual happiness.

1 John 2:17 – The world is passing away and so is its desires, but he that does the will of God remains forever.
