Loving your appearance has become easier and more appealing to both men and women, as reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in their latest findings. Although women comprise the majority of cosmetic patients, men are starting to develop more interest and are acting on it. Also, people between the ages of 40-54 are the most likely to have a cosmetic procedure in 2019.
Are you one of 51% of all women who have the goal of losing excess fat this year? You have dieted, exercised, and yet you have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to remove. If you are ready for a non-invasive procedure that eliminates fat without surgery, consider CoolSculpting, named NewBeauty Magazine’s “Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” for the second year in a row in the magazine’s annual Beauty Choice Award edition.
You diet, you walk, you run – you may even do nightly crunches, but stubborn belly fat often seems impossible to reduce. “People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”

Michelle Obama’s willingness to break with tradition and bare her toned and muscled upper arms even at formal events has put a new national focus on this often troublesome part of the body.
