Cosmetic Surgery for Real, by Richard Buckley, MD, Milford, PA
Team USA Women at Sochi Olympics Define the Beauty of the Athletic Build
Some of the women competing at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are petite but boy are they fit. Whether you look at Kaitlyn Farrington, Lindsey Jacobellis, Noell Pikus-Pace, Gracie Gold or many others, their physiques are defined by visible musculature.
It’s a trend I’m seeing a lot in practice. Women are going to the gym to build muscle to the point that the athletic build is the new sexy.
As cosmetic surgeons, we strive to help women achieve their ideal body shapes. Even women who are extremely fit struggle with areas of their bodies that seem resistant to diet and exercise. The goal with liposculpting is to rid the physique of those unwanted fatty bulges, without disrupting the body’s natural shape.
Today’s liposculpting options are especially popular among women on the go. They tend to be less invasive, recoveries are minimal and, when used by an experienced cosmetic surgeon, results look and feel natural.
Among the more popular liposculpting options for fit women: ProLipo, an FDA approved laser used under the skin with local while-awake anesthesia. ProLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that liquefies fat cells while contouring and tightening the body. Another option is Smartlipo, a laser system which sculpts the body by disrupting fat cells. Smartlipo, like ProLipo, results in a tightening effect. So, the skin which used to lay on top of a fatty bulge adjusts tightly to the body’s new silhouette.
