Cosmetic Surgery Enquiry

Liposuction is a drastic measure to take to change the shape of your body, for some people this is too much of a risk, or too expensive. However, there are some alternatives to liposuction that can offer some results.


One of the most popular alternatives to liposuction is mesotherapy. This is a new technique, which involves injecting a combination of natural substances into the body. These substances aid the body to naturally dissolve fat cells. This is a good alternative to liposuction as it offers targeted weight loss without surgery and its risks. If considering mesotherapy you should see a specialist who will be able to determine whether or not you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

Body Wraps

Body wraps offer temporary inch loss from your abdomen, hips, back, legs, and thighs and some people use them as an alternative to liposuction. It is possible to lose inches using body wraps however; the results are not long lasting meaning that you will require regular repeat treatments to keep up the look. Body wraps are fairly cheap and are available in several spas around the UK. The costs generally start at around £40 and there are also home kits available. Body wraps are a good alternative to liposuction if used regularly or if only used for special events but do not provide the permanent results that many people look for.

Control Clothing

The easiest way to make your body look slimmer and smother is to wear control clothing. This offers a cheap way of making your body smother under normal clothing. Many people are happy with this although it does not change the underlying cause of your issue. Control clothing is cheap and can be effective if you want to wear tight fitting clothing.

Diet and Exercise

The cheapest way to change the shape of your body is through diet and exercise. Eating a balanced diet that is low in saturated fats, salt, and sugar and high in vitamins and minerals can help to improve your metabolism and prevent you from gaining fat. If you need help designing a diet, you should speak to your GP or a dietician who will be able to advise you on a healthy diet to tackle your problem areas. There are also private diet plans and weight loss groups, which you can join to help you to lose weight and fat.

You should also combine a healthy diet with physical activity. Doing at least thirty minutes of moderate exercise a minimum of five times a week can greatly improve your metabolism reducing the amount of fat that your body stores. You can also do targeted exercise, which allows you to strengthen the muscles of one area of your body making that area appear tighter and firmer.
