Liposuction vs. Exercise: Benefits of Fitness

“Nobody is perfect.. but we can all be beautiful”.  At Coffs Coast Health Club we are not into physical perfection,  we are simply into fitness and health.  Have you, or someone you know, ever thought about the  liposuction?   We are not here to say what is right or wrong, but rather to give you facts about liposuction followed by the several benefits of exercise.  So here is some fat to chew on…no pun intended.

MayoClinic.com reports that losing weight through exercise reduces your risk of heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and types of cancer. Additionally, exercise boosts your mood and strengthens your immune system. In contrast, losing weight through liposuction does not cause any measurable health benefits, according to Medical News Today. Researchers found that the risk of heart disease or stroke were not reduced when obese females underwent liposuction to remove an average of 11 kilos of belly fat.

Reducing Fat

Liposuction involves manually removing fat from a person’s body by cutting them open and sucking it out. Liposuction certainly has its appealing attributes, however, there is simply no substitute for good old fashioned exercise. Consider the following for liposuction vs. exercise.

Price

Even though prices have come down, liposuction is still very expensive. The price of a liposuction ranges from $3000 to well over $10,000. On the contrary, going for a walk is free. Think about all the other things you could be doing with that money.

Muscles

Losing weight through exercise will also make you stronger and more physically fit. Liposuction does nothing for your muscles or physical ability. Fitness definitely wins in the liposuction vs. exercise debate here.

Recovery Time

It can take days or even weeks to recover from a liposuction surgery. With exercise, the only recovery time you need is a few hours to rest your tired muscles.

Achievement

If you lose weight through exercise, you get a great sense of achievement and accomplishment. You become more confident in yourself and your ability to fulfill goals. Liposuction is the easy way out, and does nothing to improve your mental strength.

Danger

Though the danger is small, especially now, there is a chance that something can go wrong with the liposuction surgery. And when you compare liposuction to exercise, exercise wins hands down as being less harmful. In fact, exercise can make you far less vulnerable to injury, and act as a preventive health measure.

Long Term Benefits

Weight loss from exercise tends to be much more permanent. The discipline and motivation required for exercise is likely to stick with you for a long time. However, many people who get liposuction quickly regain the weight they lost because they have not developed the discipline to keep it off.

Weight Lose through Exercise:  7 Benefits of regular physical activity that you don’t get from liposuction.

You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood to improving your sex life, find out how exercise can improve your life. 

Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.

No. 1: Exercise controls weight

Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.

No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases

Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

No. 3: Exercise improves mood

Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

No. 4: Exercise boosts energy

Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.

No. 5: Exercise promotes better sleep

Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.

No. 6: Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life

Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there’s more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise.

No. 7: Exercise can be fun

Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.

The bottom line on exercise

Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any health concerns.
