Weight issues become more pronounced during swimsuit season

23 May 2013

Throughout summer, many adults find themselves wishing they were a stone lighter or more. Swimsuit season is a hard time for overweight and obese individuals, and days at the beach are particularly difficult. For some, diet and exercise can only do so much. Recent studies have proven the existence of a gene that makes weight loss more difficult for certain individuals. If you’re not shedding pounds despite a rigorous workout regime and restricted diet, there are other options available.

To control your appetite and get your weight down to a manageable level, consider a gastric balloon. This non-invasive procedure involves swallowing a balloon, which is later filled with saline solution to make you feel fuller. Although the treatment is only temporary, with an average duration of six months, during that time you should notice significant results.

Following that, liposuction will remove excess fatty deposits throughout the body. Getting rid of that stubborn muffin top can have unforeseen effects, increasing your self esteem and confidence.
