Beauty: Is There A Safer And Permanent Option Than Waist Trainers To Shape Your Figure?

August 2, 2019

Yes, there’s a better, safer and longer-lasting way to get that slender hourglass silhouette you’ve always wanted!

Every year, we look forward to seeing what outrageous outfits Hollywood pulls off during the annual Met Gala. And this year, it was no different. Among the many celebrities, one particular outfit stood out – Kim Kardashian in a crystal-adorned “dripping wet” Thierry Mugler couture dress with a tiny waist that got everyone talking.

Waist Trainers

A day after the event, the secret to the reality star’s impossibly small waist was revealed — an extremely uncomfortable corset that resulted in her not being able to sit properly during the night. Though some would say that she, along with her siblings, are no strangers to corsets and waist trainers as they’ve been seen wearing them for years, it still brought up a lot of health concerns. So if you’re tempted to run out to buy some of these undergarments to shape your body, you might want to rethink this plan.

First, medical professionals say that waist trainers such as corsets, girdles and shapewears are only a temporary solution. Second, and a more worrying cause for concern, wearing waist trainers long-term can have detrimental health effects like breathing difficulties, organ and bone damage, and even weakening of your core muscles. In short, waist training is not a realistic answer to getting that shapely figure you’ve been dreaming of.

Beauty: Is There A Safer And Permanent Option Than Waist Trainers To Shape Your Figure?

Getting that hourglass figure you desire

If what you long for is a trim and defined waist, and a shapely hourglass figure, Vaser Liposuction is a possible option, and may be a safer alternative too. VASER is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.

Vaser Liposuction specifically targets the stubborn pockets of fat that you can’t seem to get rid of no matter how much you exercise or eat clean. This scientifically proven, gentler form of liposuction allows VASER-certified doctors to sculpt and contour the body using a patented ultrasound wave technology to liquefy fat cells, then remove them via a vacuum suction.

More importantly, as Vaser Liposuction targets specific problem areas without disturbing surrounding connective tissues such as blood vessels, it reduces the risk of bruising and bleeding during the treatment. In addition, the ultrasound waves trigger collagen production at the same time, so the treated areas become smoother and more defined.

However, it is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. What it does is remove stubborn fat tissue from targeted areas, but you will still need to have a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and eating right to maintain your new hourglass figure.
