Freeze Your Butt OffPosted On: June 3, 2016
You may feel like doing nothing but sitting on your butt once the Memorial Day barbecue smoke has cleared and the lazy days of summer hit full force, but you also may wish there was less of that butt taking up space beneath you on your picnic blanket, deck chair, or beach towel. There are several ways to approach this foundational problem. One proven way to get rid of some of that pesky padding—as well as unwanted fat throughout that entire area—is with liposuction from Grand Rapids’ board-certified plastic surgeons at the Bengtson Center.
As a surgical procedure, liposuction does wonders on your waist and hips, your inner and outer thighs, and an area unglamorously referred to as your flanks. Though recovery can take about five to 10 days, results are immediate. Once the fat is out of the body, it’s gone!
When it comes time to turn attention to the bottom itself, many patients are freezing their butts off with CoolSculpting®. Unlike liposuction, which physically sucks excess fat out of the body through an incision, this method non-surgically pulls heat energy out of the troublesome cells. As the targeted fat cells’ temperature drops, they die off. Other cells vital to proper body functions handle the cold much better than fat, and these healthy and unharmed tissues do nothing but wave goodbye as the unwanted fat is destroyed and then removed from the body. The Bengtson Center team operates two fat-freezing machines, has extensive training, is recognized as a CoolSculpting® Certified Practice, and has been recognized as West Michigan’s only Premier Crystal Practice, featuring exclusive benefits for patients.
This process is more gradual than liposuction, given that the fat-freezing process plays out over a matter of weeks and months. No matter the approach you take to busting that butt and any unwanted fat around it, spring represents a good time to start, as results can show by the time the hottest season is beckoning you and your friends to the pool or beach.
