Liposuction cannot fix your partner’s aversion to putting the lid on the toothpaste. It can’t help you sort out why dog food commercials make you cry. (So. sob. Cute.) And if liposuction had fingers, it couldn’t magically snap them and make you fit into your high school prom dress. Despite the skill of your plastic surgeon, the many advances in cosmetic surgery and all the magical things you’ve read on the internet, liposuction—like all cosmetic procedures—has its limitations. Understanding those limitations is what stands in the way of you and a successful outcome.
As almost any woman will tell you, finding a way to make our legs appear slimmer and more shapely is a constant challenge. Diet and exercise usually just doesn’t cut it either. Leg fat is stubborn! The important thing to remember is, as awful as we may feel while staring at that dressing room mirror, we are not alone – and the problem isn’t necessarily our fault. Blame your parents, gals!
